Welcome to our game preview and open game thread. Join other Seahawks and talk about the game as it’s happening in the comments section. As always, opposing fans are more than welcome to join in.
Arguably the most important game of the season thus far for the Seahawks as they face the Saints on Monday Night Football. The winner will hold the lead for the #1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs after tonight’s matchup.
Seahawks fans will look to Marshawn Lynch to unleash Beast Mode once again on the New Orleans Saints at the CLink. Russell Wilson goes against his boyhood idol, Drew Brees, who’ll be glad that two of Seattle’s starting cornerbacks, Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond are out due to injury/suspension.
Percy Harvin appears to be sidelined once again with his hip injury even after two weeks to recover for the MNF matchup. The Seahawks have made it to 10-1 without the injured playmaker so his absence won’t be a reason for lowered expectations tonight.
