Carroll and Seattle Beat Saints 34-7 home victory 6 weeks ago but that doesn’t mean a thing as this is the NFL playoff game that matters. If Drew Brees has a great game and Russell Wilson is sub par, this could be a close one. Pete is right that the Hawks will need to bring their A game to win.
Seattle can be beat Arizona and St Louis exposed them. Saints need run the ball with a solid D they can beat anyone in the league. The running game has not been used enough and Payton knows this and that’s why he has be going to running game more in recent weeks and i believe that will key to the game. Defensive line need to stay in Wilson face this should be much better game then the last one. Saints win in close game.
“Oh, no,” Carroll said. “There are no automatics here. They’re going to hear about it. It’s human nature that you would like to think it’s going to be the same. But we have to know better than that. We need to respect this for what it is, a great championship matchup, and they’re going to come loaded up.”
Sneaky Pete also asks fans to forget about all those banned substance convictions, as he has no knowledge of it ever happening.
But I do expect a determined NO team. Beastquake run will only be played x1000 in the leadup, plus the earlier beatdown. Its gonna be a game. The Hawks still a young team, but the Saints are probably more desperate, although even in the cold, even on the road, I wasn’t impressed by their performance against PHI. Seahawks are 12-3 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. Saints are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Seattle. Favorite is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
