In the ultimate revenge game of 2016 - Max Unger on one side, Jimmy Graham on the other - the Seattle Seahawks head down to New Orleans to face off against Drew Brees and the Saints. Seattle is coming off a 6-6 tie on Sunday Night Football against the Arizona Cardinals, while the Saints lost in Kansas City 27-21 in a game that was far less contested than the score shows.
Currently sitting at 2-4, a loss would pretty much sink any chance New Orleans has at a wild card spot. Meanwhile, the 4-1-1 Seahawks will look to return to the win column and away from that pesky third column that was never before seen in Seattle up until last Sunday.
The Seahawks offense will have to get rolling again if they’re to keep up with the high-scoring Saints offense, and they’ll have every opportunity to do so against a paltry New Orleans defense.
