Once again, the Saints are on the ropes early in Seattle.
Marshawn Lynch’s 15-yard TD run gave the Seahawks a 13-0 lead less than a minute into the second quarter in Saturday’s divisional-round matchup at CenturyLink Field.
Lynch’s touchdown came two plays after Seahawks defensive end forced Saints tailback Mark Ingram to fumble. Bennett recovered at the New Orleans 24, and the Seahawks were in business.
The Saints have leaned heavily on the run thus far in rainy and windy conditions in Seattle. Quarterback Drew Brees has completed just 3-of-7 passes for 19 yards. The Saints do not yet have a completion to a wide receiver or tight end.
