The Saints are almost as beat up as the Seahawks are. They're missing three of their running backs, and a few defensive backs as well. I guess that can be seen as a positive.
My Hawk of the week is, well, shit. New Orleans is a pretty damn good team. According to Football Outsiders, their offensive line is pretty damn awesome, and their defense is pretty good, too. I guess I'll go with Lawyer Milloy. He makes the most of the safety blitz and picks up a sack to go along with a nice run stop on third and short. However, the Saints at home prove to be too much for the Hawks and take the game 27-13.
Hopefulmsfan wins last weeks Post Your Hawk by predicting that Kelly Jennings would intercept his first pass since 2006 in last week's game. Well done, sir. Here's the link to the point prediction spreadsheet: Link. Surf Hawk, diehard_82, BeaverBird and I are battling it out for the top spot. It's close!
