New Orleans Saints Vs. Seattle Seahawks Score: 24-17, Seahawks Surprising The Saints

The Seattle Seahawks continue to play out of their minds against the New Orleans Saints and lead the defending Super Bowl champions, 24-17. Matt Hasselbeck capped off a nine-play, 76-yard drive by finding a wide open Brandon Stokley for a 45-yard touchdown and nearly pushing Qwest Field into orbit.

It was Hasselbeck’s third touchdown of the game and he’s thrown for 168 yards on 13-for-18 passing. The ground game of Marshawn Lynch and Justin Forsett has struggled but the Saints secondary hasn’t offered much resistance so the Seahawks continue to move the ball through the air.

It’s interesting to hear the announcers back pedal from their predictions all week. All of a sudden everyone said they knew Seattle was capable of hanging with the Saints and they had a feeling the Seahawks had a real shot to win this game. Rubbish!

The Seahawks are playing with a lot of confidence as evidenced by their playcalling. The second half is going to be interesting.
