The Seahawks will head to another meeting without Russell Wilson at quarterback.
Wilson remains out with finger surgery, and Seattle has turned to Geno Smith to lead its offense. Smith, in his first start since 2017, completed 71.9 percent of his passes with 209 passing yards, a touchdown and no picks in a 23-20 loss to the Steelers.
Smith and the Seahawks will have to face one of the toughest defenses in the league as they prepare to face the Saints on “Monday Night Football.”
If there’s one thing to keep Seahawks fans optimistic heading into the game, it’s the receivers. Despite a mistake against the Steelers, DK Metcalf has had a strong season entering Week 7 No. 17 overall in the league with 441 receiving yards. His teammate Tyler Lockett was not far behind with 425 receiving yards, good for No. 19 in the league.
However, the Saints’ defense figures to give them a lot of difficulties. New Orleans has allowed just 5.3 yards per play this season, the 10th-best in the NFL, and they’ve been especially good against passing offenses, with just five touchdowns to nine interceptions so far.
There is also the solid play of late Jameis Winston. Since a dismal second week, Winston has completed 60.8 percent of his passes for 633 yards and seven touchdowns with just one interception.
Here’s everything you need to know about watching the Saints-Seahawks game, including the TV channel, start time, and more.
