If The Playoffs Started Today: The Seahawks Are Probably Going To The Super Bowl Edition

BreesSeattle

During his post-game press conference on Monday night, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees defended his team’s play on the road and their harrowing 34-7 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

While Brees remained steadfast in claims that New Orleans could hang with anyone the road, evidence suggests otherwise.

New Orleans is 0-5 all-time in road playoff games. What should be more alarming though is the 0- 3 record the Saints have posted thus far during the Payton/Brees era.

The Saints lost postseason road games to Chicago, Seattle, and San Francisco since 2006. So, why should we believe that the same leadership which lost to a 7-9 Seahawks team as defending Super Bowl champions stands a chance against one of the best teams in Seattle history?

We shouldn’t.

This is Seattle’s NFC to give away.
