The New Orleans Saints take on the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football after coming off their BYE week. They’re 3-2 right now and hoping to move to 4-2 with a win over the Russell Wilson-less Seahawks. Currently, NOLA is favored by five points, per WynnBET.

Somehow, Geno Smith just doesn’t have the same intimidation factor in this one but he’s been fine so far. He’s mostly dinked and dunked but hey, whatever gets the job done, right?

Let’s see how Madden sees this game shaking out.

Madden Simulation – New Orleans Saints 27, Seattle Seahawks 19

Saints Stats

  • Jameis Winston – 13-of-24, 182 yards, 3 TD, 2 INT
  • Alvin Kamara – 17 rush, 98 yards, 2 TD; 3 rec, 45 yards
  • Marquez Callaway – 4 rec, 67 yards, TD
  • Deonte Harris – 2 rec, 45 yards, TD
  • Adam Trautman – Rec, 15 yards, TD
  • Demario Davis – 14 tackles
  • Malcolm Jenkins – INT
  • Marshon Lattimore – INT

Seahawks Stats

  • Geno Smith – 17-of-32, 217 yards, TD, 2 INT; 3 rush, 14 yards, TD
  • Alex Collins – 12 rush, 34 yards, TD
  • D.K Metcalf – 6 rec, 103 yards, TD
  • Tyler Lockett – 3 rec, 87 yards
  • Bobby Wagner – 13 tackles
  • Darrell Taylor – 2 sacks
  • Quandre Diggs – INT
  • Jamal Adams – INT

This really looks like a Saints kind of game, as Winston fails to put up entrancing numbers but the Who Dats walk out of Seattle with a win and that’s what matters. Kamara does a ton of damage here, making his presence felt on the ground and as a pass-catcher. Callaway and Harris once again do the bulk of the work for the receivers but Trautman finds the end zone for the first time this season.

As for the Seahawks, Smith has a decent day with two total touchdowns but also throws two interceptions. Metcalf and Lockett give the Saints secondary fits all day long, however, and with numbers like those, this game could certainly be close.

It’ll be interesting to see what goes down in this game. New Orleans is a hard team to predict due to how up and down they’ve been through the first five games of the year but they should be able to handle a Seahawks team that doesn’t have its future Hall of Fame quarterback or many noteworthy players.

Madden has yet to correctly pick a game this season so here’s to hoping they notch their first W this week.
