The New Orleans Saints (9-2) travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks (10-1) in a matchup that likely will determine who gets the no. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs on Monday Night Football at CenturyLink Field.

Game Time: 8:40 p.m. ET

TV: ESPN

Online: Audio Pass | Game Rewind

Odds: Seahawks -6

How will the Saints win at a place that might be the hardest place to win in the NFL, against Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson, who has a 13-0 record at CenturyLink Field? And how will the Saints offense led by quarterback Drew Brees run the high-powered offense the team has run all year in the sleet and rain in Seattle tonight? Will the weather conditions lead Seattle to lean on running back Marshawn Lynch, and how will the Saints stop the man that iced the playoff game the last time the two teams played with his run so important it caused an earthquake? Use this as an Open Thread to discuss the action.
