The New Orleans Saints have a tough Week 3 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks. Here are three must-watch players.
After losing their star quarterback in Week 2, the New Orleans Saints will have to find a way to put together a competent performance on the road.
Seattle is 1-0 at home this season, defending the Bengals in their season opener. Fighting against a team that’s an overall 2-0, the Saints will need a solid mix of offensive firepower and dominant defense to down Seattle in one of the league’s most hostile road environments.
Banged up, this won’t be an easy matchup. The Saints will be without Brees, but they’ll also be missing third-string wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith. Teddy Bridgewater, who will start in place for Brees, will have limited weapons.
However, the core offense is still going to be active. Finding that connection between Bridgewater and the rest of the offense in real-time will be of utmost importance and could change the game in Who Dat Nation’s favor.
The second game in the team’s West Coast road trip, the Saints need a win in Seattle to keep their NFC Champion hopes alive. While not favored, they are certainly not going to back down from the challenge.
That said, let’s dive into three game-changing players that’ll be crucial for the Saints.
