New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks in Week 13
In what could steal the spotlight as the best Monday Night Football game of the year, the New Orleans Saints will hit the road in Week 13 to take on the Seattle Seahawks in front of the ravenous "12th man" fans at CenturyLink Field.
As if the task of winning in Seattle wasn’t hard enough, the fact that quarterback Drew Brees and the third-ranked New Orleans pass offense will be forced to square off with the league’s second-best pass defense in the Seahawks will be the ultimate chess match.
The ultimate difference in this matchup could be the running game. While the Saints have struggled on the ground (26th overall) and have struggled to stop the rush (25th overall), Seattle is ranked sixth in the NFL and continues to get better each week.
As well as New Orleans has played in 2013, the Seahawks will have the definitive edge in this matchup.
Atlanta Falcons at San Francisco 49ers in Week 16
The San Francisco 49ers should have their playoff spot locked up by the time Week 16 rolls around, but the Atlanta Falcons must be feared as one of the most potentially dangerous second-half teams in the NFL.
After Atlanta dominated the NFC in 2012, injuries on both sides of the ball have killed the team's chances of repeating last year’s success. With wide receiver Roddy White (ankle/hamstring) continuing to get back into shape and the rest of the lineup finding chemistry, the 49ers can’t sleep on the Falcons.
While all hope may be lost for the current season, Atlanta will be looking to build positive momentum heading into the offseason. There is a chance the franchise could catch San Francisco sleeping and steal the show Monday night.
This matchup likely will likely have no long-term ramifications for either organization, but it has the potential to be a very interesting football game to close the Monday Night Football schedule.
