Game facts: Seahawks at Saints

Fast starters: The Saints have scored on their opening drive in four straight games.  

Rare case: The Saints are 2-4 and averaging 29.3 PPG this season. The only other team in the Super Bowl era with a higher PPG that finished with a losing record is the 2004 Chiefs (7-9 record, 30.2 PPG).

Potential advantage: Per Next Gen Stats, Drew Brees has a 141.6 passer rating when throwing to the left side of the field in home games this year. Seattle's top CB, Richard Sherman, primarily plays on the left side of the defense (right side of the offense). 

Big-time matchup: The Saints have the NFL's No. 1 total offense and the Seahawks have the NFL's No. 1 total defense. 

Historically bad defense: The Saints are allowing 32.5 PPG this season. That would be the most PPG allowed by any team since the 1970 merger.
