NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees was pulled at halftime with a rib injury after passing for just 76 yards and a touchdown, but Alvin Kamara scored three times and New Orleans’ defense largely stifled San Francisco to help the Saints secure a 27-13 victory. Brees’ injury appeared to occur when Niners defensive tackle Kentavius Street was called for a personal foul on a sack in which he got a clean shot at the 41-year-old quarterback and landed directly on top of him. Niners QB Nick Mulles threw for one touchdown but was intercepted twice. The Saints have won six straight.
