NFL Playoffs: Saints vs Seahawks
NFC Wildcard: New Orleans Saints @ Seattle Seahawks Sat. Jan. 8th 2011 4:30pm EST
The NFL playoffs are officially underway and even though there are plenty of intriguing matchups during Wildcard weekend, there is one game that could end up in a blowout as the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints will head to Seattle to take on the 7-9 Seahawks.
Despite Qwest Field being one of the toughest places to play in the NFL today, the Saints are playing like they are back to championship form and have been heavily favored in NFL picks to come out on top in the first round of the playoffs with a -10.5 point spread.
Even though the spread is extremely high for a playoff game, I believe that Drew Brees and company can pull it off as they as playing as well as any team in the league right now and will be looking to get their playoff title defense off to a hot start with a big win over the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday at Qwest Field.
