Classic football: Big D versus Big O

This weekend will start big with San Francisco hosting New Orleans
The Saints tore through the NFL, setting NFL marks for total yards on offense (7,474) and yards passing (5,347, including sacks), with Drew Brees shattering Dan Marino’s 27-year-old record of 5,084 yards passing by throwing for 5,476.
If defense wins championships, as has been the theory in pro football for decades, the edge clearly belongs to Parys Haralson and the 49ers’ heralded defense. Then again, the NFL hasn’t seen an offense as prolific as the Saints.
