Garoppolo's 4 TD passes help 49ers top Saints, 48-46

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Jimmy Garoppolo decisively delivered a fourth-down pass to George Kittle with time running out, and the veteran tight end vigorously galloped up the sideline, embracing an opportunity to defiantly jerk his head back and forth as a Saints defender grabbed his face mask.

"Run through people, but have a good time doing it," Kittle said of his mindset, which seemed to be contagious across his team.

With that adrenaline-fueled play - which netted 53 yards after the Saints' penalty - Drew Brees' late-game heroics moments earlier were virtually undone and the 49ers took a crucial step toward securing the top playoff seeding in the NFC.
