Garrett Hartley kicked a 37-yard field goal that barely fluttered through as time expired after Drew Brees set it up with a 30-yard completion to Marques Colston and the New Orleans Saints spoiled the San Francisco 49ers' home opener with a 25-22 victory last night.

Frank Gore of the 49ers ran for a 7-yard touchdown with 1:19 to play and Vernon Davis made a close-call catch at the goal line for the tying two-point conversion. The play was initially called no good, but it was reversed on replay review.

The Saints (2-0) got the ball back at their 30-yard line with 1:14 left.

The 49ers are 0-2.

Vick threw for 175 yards and one touchdown and ran for 103 in a 27-20 loss to the Packers, nearly rallying the Eagles to victory from a 17-point deficit.
