New Orleans SAINTS at Seattle SEAHAWKS, 5:15p (NBC)
Well, it's a Sunday nighter.
I guess the creepy thing is that this would really suck if the Seahawks lost to an 0-4 team of Saints. That would drop the Seahawks to .500, and that would be terrible. What would be even worse? Next week, the Seahawks host an 0-6 team of Rams. It would be doomsday for the Seahawks if somehow they found a way to lose the next two games, both at home.
Really, though, they should take care of business. I didn't expect them to walk out of Pittsburgh last Sunday with a win, but I didn't expect an all-out nothingfest out of the team either. Somewhere in these next two weeks, which should both be wins, the Seahawks need to find their running game. If they don't do it now, I don't know when they'll do it. More importantly, the Seahawks need to get a running game going because now Deion Branch is out in addition to DJ Hackett.
I miss DJ Hackett. I miss a running game too.
