RB Reggie Bush will play against Pete Carroll’s 5-4 Seattle Seahawks, as the 6-3 New Orleans Saints return from their bye week with an eye on the NFC South title. Bush and Carroll, along with fellow USC Trojans Lofa Tatupu, Mike Williams, Charles Nicks, and Sedrick Ellis, will meet at midfield before the game and try not to tell each other Lane Kiffin jokes, but how can you not? What a sucker!
The Seahawks won only three road games from 2008 to 2009, though they’ve already rang up two this year. They may match their two-year total at some point this season, but SPOILER ALERT they will not win their third this week. The Hawks are the worst passing defense Drew Brees has faced all season, though not much worse than the Arizona Cardinals D that picked him apart, but he’d just had a baby so we don’t talk about that I think?
