San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert said this week that he expects the Niner Faithful to show up in force for the team's game this weekend against the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

"How I see it is it's going to be a neutral site because I know our fans are going to show up because every game we've gone to, so far, has really felt like a home game, especially for these away games," Mostert said during an interview on 95.7 The Game.

That seemed like a tall order, given the passionate home crowd that the Saints regularly attract at the Superdome. Based on the number of 49ers fans at what looks to be the French Quarter in the video below, maybe it's not as unlikely as once thought.


Chris Biderman of the Sacramento Bee has also noticed a significant Niner-fan presence in New Orleans this weekend. It will be interesting to see how much that carries into Sunday's NFC showdown at the Superdome.


Team reporter, Keiana Martin, also noticed the Red and Gold representation.
