This game features Tom Brady and the Seahawks traveling to Heinz Field to face off against the New Orleans Saints in a key game between AFC powerhouses.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM ET with QB Russell Wilson getting the start for the Seahawks against Drew Brees of the Saints.
Russell Wilson’s injured leg has been the reason the dynamic QB has not played well this season.
He’s basically out there on one leg and the offense as a whole has suffered for it, but resting him for a week is not an option as the Seahawks look to build on their division lead.
Last week against the Cardinals Wilson was 24-37 for 225 yards with 0 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. With the leg injury he has not scrambled at all this year. Look for him to have a good game against a bad Saints defense.
Even though Christine Michael scored twice against the Falcons two weeks ago, the replacement for Marshawn Lynch has not been as game breaking as portrayed by the media.
In the game against Arizona he carried the ball 16 times for 52 yards without a score. For the last 3 games he is averaging only 3.3 yards per carry.
He will need to do more with the amount of touches he is getting or the Seahawks will be in for a long day against the New Orleans front seven.
The Seahawks defense had a long game against Arizona.
They were on the field for over 46 minutes but did not give up a touchdown, in one of the more remarkable performances from a defense you will see all year.
They go up against a talented group of receivers, and one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history playing at an MVP level. I expect the Legion of Boom to have a long day.
New Orleans Saints
Drew Brees was great in the loss to Kansas City last week. A quote that has been said too much during his New Orleans career. Last week he was 37-48 for 367 yards with 3 touchdowns and 1 interception.
The biggest reason for this impressive stat line was the offensive line keep Brees upright. Facing a talented Kansas City pass rush Brees was sacked only 1 time the entire game.
If his O-line can put in another strong performance he should have no problems against Seattle’s secondary, who always shave trouble with smaller, shifty receivers.
Mark Ingram has consistently got touches for the Saints all season long, and last week he was able to make the most of his touches. He had over 80 total yards and a receiving score in the loss to Kansas City.
If he can get 20+ touches this week he should be able to bang up the Seattle defensive line, and still use his improved pass catching skills to exploit holes at the second level.
As bad as the Saints defense has been this year I expect them to pressure Russell Wilson all day.
They should get 4 sacks but I don’t think Seattle will turn the ball over.
This is an intriguing matchup of a defense known for giving up points, but facing an injured Pro Bowl quarterback. New Orleans will have a bend but don’t break mindset and clamp down when in the red zone.
