Seahawks roll to 13-0 second-quarter lead

Divisional Playoffs - New Orleans Saints v Seattle Seahawks Getty Images

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.

    Percy doesn’t play D, it’s the reason it’s 13-0

    Brees is such garbage outside of the safety of the Superdome.

    Sean Payton was the last guy I’d expect to roll into Seattle wanting to play Martyball.

    Brees and Saints are junk….Oh wait that offensive genius Peyton should be in there to

    If you have to tell everyone you are the “12th Man” — you aren’t. But the rubes in Seattle are lapping it up.

    No resurrection for the Stick after all. Bummer.

    What a chokefest by the Aints.

    The Seahawks, especially at home, are probably the single most frustrating team to play against in the league. The crowd noise, the “cheaters”, a defense with a mean streak, and a running game that just grinds right through your defense. You wanna test your team against the very best there is, but at the same time I believe that a lot of players THOROUGHLY hate having to square off with these guys (In Seattle, no less).

    The oft injured and fragile Percy Harvin missed a sure td…. What’s new?

  11. tfbuckfutter says: Jan 11, 2014 5:51 PM

    QUICK!

    Someone give Rob Ryan a head coaching job while there’s still time!

    Plus Seattle has this black Buick in the back field. The dudes awesome.

    I’ve made a lot of money betting on the PEDhawks this season, please keep up with the injections.

  14. bmorefalcon says: Jan 11, 2014 5:56 PM

    Same old Saints. Terrible.

  15. shaggytoodle says: Jan 11, 2014 5:56 PM

    If Carrol wouldn’t whine about penalties that are clearly obvious, and their defense would go back to the huddle instead of talking smack. I could cheer for them.

    Harvins showing toughness today i will give him that, but were was it during the rest of the season?

  16. Plumber 65 says: Jan 11, 2014 5:57 PM

    Yep, Bree’s is wishing Seattle still had the king dome

  17. jeffshana says: Jan 11, 2014 6:02 PM

    The Seahawks are cheating. Waaaaahhhhhh!!

  18. russellwilsonismymvp says: Jan 11, 2014 6:03 PM

    Same old Seattle defense…DOMINANT.

  19. redandgoldhitman52 says: Jan 11, 2014 6:03 PM

    percy harvin is ”Fragile-Handle with Care”

  20. beastmode5150 says: Jan 11, 2014 6:03 PM

    At least drew Brees and Jommy Graham are showing up. Especially after graham ran his mouth all pregame.

  21. skitd says: Jan 11, 2014 6:03 PM

    How did the network put the two biggest idiot announcers in the booth at the same time, for a playoff game no less. This is the best they got?

    Harvin may have suffered two concussions today.
