Seahawks Vs. Saints Final Score Update: New Orleans Stays A Game Behind The Falcons With 34-19 Win

In a game where neither defense was invited, the New Orleans Saints beat the Seatte Seahawks to remain a game behind the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC South. Both teams rolled up just under 500 yards and 53 points in a possible wild card weekend preview.

Drew Brees threw for 382 yards and four touchdowns but had two interceptions that kept the Seahawks closer than perhaps they should have been. Matt Hasselbeck threw for 366 yards and one touchdown but the ground game failed him as the Seahawks could only gain 58 yards.

Marques Colston and Mike Williams had great receiving days with Colston grabbing eight receptions for 113 yards and two touchdowns and Williams topping yards on six catches.

After a wild second-quarter that saw 33 total points scored, both defenses settled in and the Saints only outscored the Seahawks 7-3 in the second half.

The Falcons still have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Saints on their schedule again. With the three teams separated by only a game, the NFC South race should be a fun one to watch down the stretch.
