Live In-Game Updates: Seahawks Unable to Stop Taysom Hill, Saints in 39-32 Loss – Sports Illustrated

  • October 10, 2022

Following a thrilling 48-45 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 4, the Seattle Seahawks (2-2) aim for their first win streak of the season in The Big Easy on Sunday, as they take on the New Orleans Saints at Caesars Superdome.
The Saints lead the all-time series 9-8, which included a 13-10 win over the Seahawks on Monday Night Football last season.
New Orleans (1-3) heads into Sunday on a three-game losing streak after a crushing loss 28-25 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in London, as kicker Will Lutz saw his potential game-tying 61-yard field goal bounce off the bottom upright. 
Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton got the start for Jameis Winston in the loss and will start again on Sunday as Winston continues to nurse a back injury. 
The Saints will be without star receiver Michael Thomas (toe) but will get back dynamic running back Alvin Kamara after he missed Week 4 with a rib injury. New Orleans will also rely on rookie receiver Chris Olave. 
Despite their 1-3 record, the Saints are currently ninth in the league in offensive yards per game (364.3) and could still give a reeling Seattle defense some trouble despite the injuries on offense.
