Seth Walder Of ESPN is picking the Seahawks to beat the Saints in a close 19-16 game in Week 5. "The Saints, meanwhile, have committed an NFL-high 11 turnovers -- including five interceptions in three games from Jameis Winston -- so the opportunity will be there"

Bill Bender of Sporting News choosing the Seahawks to win 24-21 over the Saints. "The Seahawks showed life with a 48-point outburst against the Lions, and Geno Smith leads the NFL with a 77.3% completion percentage. Seattle could steal this one."

Fansided’s Matt Verderame has Seattle beating New Orleans in a tight 24-22 game. "The Seahawks are 2-2 and playing really solid offense."

Bleacher Report’s panel came up with a final score prediction of the Saints beating the Sehawks 28-22. "Our crew tentatively backed the Saints at home with the thought that their ninth-ranked pass defense will slow down Smith."

Pro Football Talk’s Michael David Smith is backing the Seahawks to win this week in New Orleans with a final score of 17-13. Geno Smith is off to an excellent start this season, but he'll come back to earth on Sunday in New Orleans.

John La Fleur of Athlon Sports has picked the Saints to win at home against the Seahawks 23-20. "At this point, both teams need to go on a winning streak to remain competitive in their respective divisions. For the Seahawks, that means repeating what they did last week: winning on the road. For the Saints, that starts by halting their three-game skid."

Seahawks players and staff depart from the Virginia Mason Athletic Center and fly with Delta Air Lines to face the New Orleans Saints for Week 5 of the 2022 season.
