Geno Smith will make a second straight primetime start, and a third straight primetime appearance, when he leads the Seahawks against the Saints at home on “Monday Night Football.”
Seattle’s replacement for injured starting quarterback Russell Wilson will face a New Orleans defense that has added nine interceptions and allowed just five touchdown passes in five games. Smith threw an interception in a Thursday night game of Week 5 against the Rams. He was sacked five times in Seattle’s 23-20 overtime loss Sunday night to the Steelers in Week 6.
WEEK 8 POWER RATINGS: Tracking the ups and downs
He will be looking to target No. 1 wide receiver DK Metcalf in the passing game. Metcalf caught six passes for 58 yards against the Steelers, but failed to score for the first time since Week 2.
FANTASY: injury updates for Saints-Seahawks
The Saints (3-2) are favored by 5.5 points in this meeting, according to FanDuel. Part of the reason is the potential for Saints quarterback Jameis Winston to wreck the Seahawks defense, which has allowed 292.3 passing yards per game in six games. Seattle (2-4) is 24th in the league with 7.2 net yards allowed per pass play.
