When the New Orleans Saints traveled to Seattle for an early December throttling, Drew Brees limped away with his worst statistical line of the last decade. His offense didn't cross its own 30-yard line for a second time until deep into the third quarter.
The answer is a resounding "No."
This secondary boasts not one, but two legitimate Defensive Player of the Year candidates.
Richard Sherman pulled off the difficult feat of leading the league in interceptions despite being the least targeted cornerback in the NFL. Earl Thomas' speed functions as a one-man safety net, allowing hard-hitting strong safety Kam Chancellor to play in the box like a linebacker.
Pro Football Focus and Football Outsiders both rank Seattle head and shoulders above the other 31 teams in pass defense. The Seahawks also have the luxury of one of the deepest and most effective pass-rushing defensive lines.
As we pointed out in Thursday's "Around The League Podcast" Divisional Round Weekend preview, this is quite simply a brutal matchup for the Saints. Everything they do well, the Seahawks excel at taking away.
Throw in a driving rain and a unique home-field advantage that consistently allows Seattle's front seven to get off the ball quicker than the offensive line, and Brees will struggle once again to find an exploitable weakness.
