Well, hopefully the skeptics missed this one.
The now-9-3 New Orleans Saints were embarrassed on Monday Night Football by the Seattle Seahawks (11-1) by a score of 34-7. In what was a battle for the No. 1 seed of the NFC, the Saints only managed to muster 188 yards...total!
The Seahawks, at times, seemed liked they were actually playing with 12 players. Most pundits questioned if the Saints had the type of team that could travel and play well in games without ideal conditions.
Well, if this game was of any indication, those pundits may be onto something. The Saints must now regroup and get ready to face the hottest team in the NFL in the Carolina Panthers on Sunday Night Football.
A repeat performance like this one could send a magical season down the tubes. Expect the Saints to regroup and get right back in the thick of things.
Needless to say, they want to move on from this one ASAP. Here are my takeaways from the game.
