The 49ers 36 to 32 victory over the Saints in January was undoubtedly the best, most exciting, emotional football game I have ever seen.

I absolutely cannot wait, the NFL.com videos and youtube highlights aren't helping me to relive this glorious moment in history.
They will show the game again in full later this summer as the season gets closer.
NFL Network re-airs all their weekly NFL Replays, in order, starting at a certain point during the summer leading up to the new season. The 49ers/Saints game will get re-aired once they get to their playoff re-airs, probably in late July or August. They will show the game in full since they decided not to do an NFL Replay version and chose instead to re-air the entire game the following week after it was played.
As for an NFL Films 30 or 60-minute special... well, don't hold your breath. It's possible they could produce a special on the game eventually, but like DaDiva said above, it's becoming a rarity these days.
