The New Orleans Saints will be traveling over to Seattle to face the Seattle Seahawks in the unfriendly confines of CenturyLink Field. The Saints were able to get a big time win on the road last week, but have an even tougher task ahead against the Seahawks. They have been down this road before, earlier this season and were destroyed. They will be looking for a better performance this time around.
The Saints have not been a good road team, but with Drew Brees throwing the football, they will have a chance to win any game. Brees will have to figure out how to beat the tough Seahawks defense and will also need to figure out how to deal with the crazy crowd noise. He might have to trust in Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles a lot in the game.
The Seahawks are going into the game as the favorites to get to the Super Bowl. There are a lot of expectations for the club and they have the talent to make things happen. Percy Harvin will be making his return in the game and he should give Russell Wilson another option to throw the ball to. Marshawn Lynch is always a threat to break off huge runs on offense. The defense has talent all over the field. The Seahawks are stacked.
With the Saints on the road in Seattle, it is going to be a tough. The home field advantage will play a huge part in the game and the Seahawks defense will be able to feed off of the crowd noise. The game might not be crisp for both teams on offense, but the Saints are going to have a tougher time moving the ball in Seattle. Can’t select against the Seahawks in this one.
Seattle Seahawks 20 – New Orleans Saints 13
