The New Orleans Saints are in a must-win game this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. As you know, the Saints have dropped to 1-3 and really should be 0-4 right now. Seattle, on the other hand, is surprisingly 2-2 and their offense has been explosive.
The Saints' offense has struggled big time but they did show signs of improvement this past week when Andy Dalton took over at quarterback. Alvin Kamara is rumored to be returning to the lineup too, which should help. It also doesn't hurt that the Seahawks' defense hasn't been able to stop anyone.
This game isn't between two exciting teams so it's not surprising to see the crew assigned to this game.

On the call for this NFC matchup will be Brandon Gaudin, Matt Millen, and Megan Olivi. Gaudin, the play-by-play announcer, has experience in NFL games with FOX and is also a part of college football, basketball, and baseball games for the Big Ten Network. Millen, the color analyst, played in the NFL for 12 years. Olivi, the sideline reporter, is known for her work as a UFC reporter.
As mentioned above, this game isn't one that non-Saints and non-Seahawks fans are going to be geared up for, so it makes sense that the A-Team, B-Team, C-Team, and so on weren't assigned to this game.
That being said, Saints fans are hoping this crew gets to call New Orleans' second win of the season. They're currently 5.5-point favorites, according to FanDuel, which seems generous considering their struggles.
