The New Orleans Saints could have another running back top 100 rushing yards Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.

One week after Tim Hightower rushed 26 times for 102 yards against the Seattle Seahawks, the Saints will face a run defense that not only ranks as the worst in the league, but also has let an opposing rusher amass 100 yards or more in each of the last six games.

That could put Hightower -- or Mark Ingram, provided he makes a full return to the field after his first-quarter benching Sunday -- in position to give the Saints a 100-yard rusher in successive games for the first time since Ingram did it three games in a row in 2014.
