The Seattle Seahawks are where they belong: On Monday Night Football. Will the Atlanta Falcons rudely remind them of their last two playoff meetings or does Russell Wilson have more Monday night magic in store? Talk about it here!

The Seahawks are 6-0 on Monday Night Football with Russell Wilson, and he has 12 touchdowns, 0 interceptions over those games. Seattle has also been dominant in primetime, on national television, and at home since hiring Pete Carroll in 2010. The Falcons won their lone Monday Night Football game in 2016, beating the New Orleans Saints 45-32 in Week 3. This season, they’ve struggled to score nearly as many points, while the defense isn’t quite up to the level that former Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn probably hoped it would be.
