Fans can watch the New Orleans Saints vs. Seattle Seahawks live online and see whether the league's toughest defense can stop Drew Brees and the firepower of the Saints offense.
The matchup kicks off the second week of the NFL playoffs, with kickoff set for 4:35 pm on Saturday at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. The game will be broadcast on Fox, but fans can watch the New Orleans Saints vs. Seattle Seahawks live online.
While NBC has been offering NFL playoff games live online for the last two years, this year CBS and Fox have also picked up live streaming options for fans. Fans who want to watch the New Orleans Saints vs. Seattle Seahawks live online will need to take a few steps before they can view the game. Fox requires viewers to authenticate that they are a subscriber through the Fox Sports Go app or the Fox website.
For the Saints, the game is a chance to avenge their lopsided loss to the Saints back in December. In the 34-7 win, the attacking Seahawks defense held Drew Brees to 147 yards, with the Saints matching their lowest scoring output since Sean Payton became head coach in 2006.
"If we want to accomplish what we set out to accomplish this year then we better find a way to go there and win, and just hoping that we'd have another opportunity," Brees said. "And here we are, having that opportunity."
The Seahawks will look to keep up a torrid stretch at home, during which quarterback Russel Wilson has thrown for seven touchdowns and only one interception in the last four games.
"I think it's common knowledge and human nature that you would like to think it's going to be the same, but we know better than that,"said Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. "We need to respect this opportunity for what it is. It's a great championship matchup for us, and they're going to come loaded up and give us a great football game."
