The last time these two teams met was in 2013 when Marshawn Lynch broke off his "earthquake" run in the wild card playoffs. A lot has changed since then, however, including how tight end Jimmy Graham is a Seahawk. This will be his first trip back to New Orleans since he was traded to the Saints in March of 2015. Graham caught 51 touchdown passes with the Saints from 2010-14.

The Seahawks have won three straight meetings versus the Saints including the playoffs. They've allowed 17 or fewer points in eight straight road games according to ESPN.com, while the Saints have scored at least 26 points in 10 straight home games. Drew Brees continues to light it up at home, throwing 34 touchdown passes to just seven interceptions since 2015.

OUR PREDICTION: Russell Wilson has not been the same quarterback since injuring his ankle and knee earlier this season. He has failed to throw or rush for a touchdown in his last two games, which is the first time in his career. Seattle's running game is also sputtering, rushing for less than 75 yards in three straight games for the first time in the season since 1993. The Saints defense is horrendous so the Seahawks will move the ball. But with the Hawks having to travel two straight weeks and coming off a physical game versus Arizona last Sunday night, look for the Saints to potentially pull off the upset.
