It’s time for the Seattle Seahawks and the New Orleans Saints to face off in primetime for the Week 7 edition of Monday Night Football with potential NFC tiebreakers and possible playoff positioning on the line.

The Saints enter the game with the sixth best record in the NFC, and could take a full game lead over the Minnesota Vikings and the Atlanta Falcons with a win in Seattle. On the flip side, in spite of one of the worst starts to a season since Pete Carroll was hired in 2010, the Seahawks enter Monday Night just one game out of the final Wild Card spot in the NFC thanks to the expansion of the playoffs to seven teams per conference. Even if a loss were to drop Seattle to 2-5, they would be just a game and a half back with ten games to play.

In any case, when the teams take the field Monday, the Seahawks will have the services of Alex Collins, but not Darrell Taylor. Both Taylor and Collins had been designated as Questionable with injuries suffered in the Week 6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The full inactives list is:

  • QB Jacob Eason
  • G Damien Lewis
  • T Stone Forsythe
  • DE Darrell Taylor
  • CB John Reid
  • DE L.J. Collier
