The NFL regular season game of this week is none other than tonight’s Monday Night Football encounter between the Seattle Seahawks and the New Orleans Saints. Both teams have quality players and coaches, but only one can go the distance tonight, assuming that they do not end up in a tie after overtime.
Seattle starting QB Russell Wilson is a whopping 13-0 when it comes to playing at home for his Seahawks. The kid can run, throw and mentally always be ready for the biggest of games even though he is only in his second season as a pro. He will have to be huge tonight against a rather decent defense of the Saints that won’t back down from anyone.
The Saints will of course be led by Super Bowl winning QB Drew Brees. The man can read defenses on almost every play and is a better thrower than he is a runner. Regardless, he can always rush in touchdowns whenever needed.
The Seattle defense is always rock-solid at home which makes them a true force to be reckoned with. They are never intimidated and are led by star cornerback Richard Sherman, who not only performs his job as the best of the best but talks trash to mess with opponents.
The game will be loud as anything since the home fans never stop cheering on their boys. They will once again be a huge factor in a game where the Saints will have to be perfect on both sides of the ball and can never lose their concentration.
Prediction: Seattle 30, New Orleans 21
The home side will be in blistering form when it comes to scoring while the opponents will lose concentration at both ends and be handed their third loss of the year.
