The New Orleans Saints and the Seattle Seahawks will match up on the NFL field on Sunday for Week 2 action.

The Saints enter this one at 1-1 on the year. New Orleans put up a 30-28 win over the Texans in the opener but fell to the Rams 27-9 in Week 2.

In the loss, Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater had 165 yards passing and Alvin Kamara had 45 yards on the ground. Michael Thomas bagged 10 catches for 89 yards also.

Over on the Seahawks’ side, they’re 2-0 this season. Seattle took out Cincinnati 21-20 in Week 1, then followed that up with a 28-26 road win over the Steelers.

In the Pittsburgh win, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson had 300 yards and three scores, and Rashaad Penny had 62 yards with a TD. Tyler Lockett had 10 catches for 79 yards as well.

The Saints are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 road games and 0-5 ATS versus a team with a winning record. New Orleans is 0-5 ATS in their last five versus the NFC and 0-6 ATS in their last six on turf.

Meanwhile, the Seahawks are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 versus the NFC and 17-5 ATS in their last 22 in Week 3. Seattle is 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 overall and 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 on turf.

With Drew Brees injured, this Saints offense isn’t going to look anywhere near what it’s supposed to. I imagine New Orleans will struggle to put up points here, especially considering CenturyLink is a notoriously difficult place to play.

I’m going to stick with the Seahawks here; the line doesn’t look too bad.
