Crazy things always seem to happen in the New Orleans Saints' recent games vs. the San Francisco 49ers, whether it was two interceptions returned for touchdowns in a loss last season, or New Orleans turning the ball over five times in a 2011 playoff loss.

With the way the Saints have been playing at home this season, they probably didn't expect to turn the ball over three times. Against a top-five defense in the 49ers, it's usually not a mistake a team could afford.
