Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Tuesday, Oct. 26 – for your Seattle Seahawks.
What's Being Said: Saints 13, Seahawks 10
The Seahawks came up short in another close game on Monday Night Football, falling to the New Orleans Saints at Lumen Field. Three of the Seahawks' five losses this season are by three points, including the last two weeks in prime time. Now at 2-5, Seattle is likely fighting for a wild card spot rather than the NFC West title, as the Arizona Cardinals (7-0) and Los Angeles Rams (6-1) have jumped out to hot starts.
Seattle's defense made another huge step in Monday's loss, allowing a season-low 13 points and 304 total yards. The Saints were just 2 for 13 on third down. Offense was the struggle in Monday's contest, with the Seahawks' lone touchdown coming on an 84-yard completion from Geno Smith to DK Metcalf in the first quarter.
