Watch New Orleans Saints vs Seattle Seahawks Online

The Seattle Seahawks are set to play host to the New Orleans Saints at home in the first NFC Divisional Playoff game of 2014 to kick off round two of the 2014 NFL Playoffs. Seattle is favored to win in their noisy football house when we watch Saints vs Seahawks online free live streaming NFL Playoffs on Fox.

Seattle enters today’s NFC Divisional Playoff having won five consecutive playoffs games at home and overall having won 16 of their past 17 regular season football games at CenturyLink Field. The only team in the past year-plus to defeat the Seahawks at home were the Arizona Cardinals a few weeks ago, and they did so by pounding the ball on the ground and controlling the clock from the get-go.

The Seahawks earned home-field advantage throughout the playoffs by compiling a 13-3 record during the regular season. They played the Saints at home back in early December and thumped them by a final score of 34-7 in one of the worst losses for New Orleans all season. Drew Brees threw for 147 yards, his lowest total in seven years, and as a team the Saints could only manage 188 total yards of offense against the Seahawks defense.

It’s no surprise Seattle’s defense was able to shut down the Saints the way they did. The Seahawks gave up an average of 273.6 yards per game during the regular season, tops in the league. They are especially potent at home in arguably the hardest stadium for road teams to win in, especially if Russell Wilson throws for three touchdowns like he did against the Saints previously. Watch Seahawks vs Saints free streaming online live on Fox this afternoon to see the Seahawks can advance.

The Saints were given no respect by anyone to win a playoffs game on the road, much less against the Philly Eagles who were on a roll and playing in frigid temperatures. Defying the odds, New Orleans waltzed into Philly and escaped the Wild Card round with a 26-24 win off a Shayne Graham field goal as time expired. It was the first time the Saints had won a road NFL Playoffs game in six tries.

Quarterback Drew Brees has the Playoffs experience far beyond that of his counterpart Russell Wilson, but his 84 passer rating on the road versus 126.3 at home is concerning for New Orleans and their fans. It won’t help Brees that the Seahawks have the best defense against the pass at giving up 172 yards per game on average, and picked off 28 passes to limit opposing quarterbacks to a 63.4 passer rating against them.

This weekend first NFC Divisional Playoff football game between the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks will kick-off at a start time of 4:35pm EST / 1:35pm PST. This will be the second 2014 NFL Playoffs game televised live on Fox, so browse your local listings to determine what the Fox channel number is in your town to watch the HD presentation of Seahawks vs Saints on your hopefully large TV.

Fox does offer the ability to watch Saints vs Seahawks online live free streaming on your iPad, phone, tablet, laptop or computer, but it is sadly located behind a pay wall at Fox Sports Go right here or via the Fox Sports Go app for customers who have their cable or satellite television service provided via AT&T U-Verse, Optimum Midcontinent Communications, SuddenLink, Xfinity or Wow! If you don’t have access through those providers, then the only way to live stream the NFC Divisional Playoffs featuring the Saints vs Seahawks game free will have to have a DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket subscription to watch Fox NFL playoff games or a replay online.

The Saints and Drew Brees will have their hands full not only trying to score on the Seahawks defense, but trying to stop Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch from putting up 30 or more points. The oddsmakers favor Seattle in this one and for good reason. It would be really hard to pick against the Seahawks at home in their first playoffs game of 2014 and I can’t see the final score being closer than seven points.
