No. 5 – Week 8 vs. Seattle (10/30)

It goes without saying, but at least two ex-Saints (assuming their health and making the roster) will be put on display in front of the Superdome crowd. Jimmy Graham and Brandon Browner will be in New Orleans right before Halloween, and you can fully expect the home crowd to have plenty of boos ready to unleash in their system for this game. If things start out the way they should for both teams, then this could actually be a good candidate for a flex game to Sunday Night Football.

Fans can’t forget the past three clashes between these two, all of which have ended in Saints losses. Needless to say, it’s time for revenge. The Saints haven’t beaten the Seahawks since 2010, and it sets the stage for the team to break a 2-6 overall skid since 2000.

Next: No. 4
