More on the matchup: The Seahawks were dominant when these teams last met in Week 13. At that point, the game was a fight for the top of the conference, and Seattle asserted itself on both sides of the ball when Russell Wilson threw for three touchdowns while the defense held New Orleans to 188 yards of net offense in a 34-7 win. These teams haven't changed a lot in the last month, but time has allowed New Orleans to make some small changes to its offense by emphasizing the screen game more. This will put pressure on the Seattle linebackers.
