Saints vs. Seahawks: Live Score, Analysis and Updates

Murf Baldwin@@MurfBaldwinContributor IJanuary 11, 2014

All good things must come to an end.

With a 23-15 final score, The New Orleans Saints were denied a chance of advancing in the playoffs by the Seattle Seahawks, The final score of 23-15 wasn't quite indicative of just how the results were derived.

Seattle controlled the game from pillar to post mostly due to Saints' own undoing. The Saints defense showed up in a major way, along with the run game, but it was future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees that was unable to rise to the occasion of the big moment. 

While Brees must shoulder a great deal of the blame for this loss, he undoubtedly got by with a little help from his friends. Turnovers and mistakes were the theme throughout the majority of the game. 

The Seahawks now await the winner of the contest between the San Francisco 49ers and the Carolina Panthers. The Saints have a bright future ahead they just need a few tweaks in their scheme, and personnel, and they will be right back in the mix.

But for now they are left to pick up the pieces...
