Monday Night Football has seen a match between the AFC contenders in consecutive weeks. That will change in Week 7 as the two NFC teams who made the playoffs last season battle it out.
However, both teams will use different players initially than most fans are used to seeing due to the injury of the home team player and the retirement of the away player.
Last season, the Saints had Drew Brees as a starter for most of the season. This year it is the James Winston Show. Meanwhile, the Seahawks still have Russell Wilson, but he is dealing with a finger injury and will miss his second straight start. Geno Smith will play in his place.
Playing a quarterback may not be of much importance in this game. This game, which will be played in Seattle, may take place during a “bomb hurricane”. It can make for a rainy and wet game, so don’t be surprised if both teams rely on running game to get them into this game.
Here’s everything you need to know about ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” for week seven, including kick-off time and more.

- Location: bore field in Seattle, Washington.
The Saints and the Seahawks play in “Monday Night Football” in Week 7. The two teams have usually been led by Drew Brees and Russell Wilson for the past decade but this year, James Winston and Jenno Smith will lead each team to this game.
The Saints (3-2) are still fresh in their farewell week and are starting to recover. They are still without Michael Thomas and receiver Deonte Harris will miss this match, but their offensive line looks stronger. That should give them a chance to run the ball with Alvin Kamara against the Seattle defense, which allows 140.8 yards to run back this season, which is good for a third in the NFL.
As for the Seahawks (2-4), they came off a tough overtime loss against the Steelers after the team overcame a 14-0 first-half deficit to force them into overtime. Smith looked good on his first start since 2017 against the Steelers, so Seattle will be hoping he can deliver the ball to DK Metcalfe and Tyler Lockett and keep the attack going.
However, as mentioned, weather can be an issue with this. As a result, Seattle may rely more on a running game, which will likely feature Rashad Penny and Alex Collins, even though Collins is dealing with a thigh injury. Top Back Chris Carson appeared on the IR due to a neck injury.
The Saints are the second best defense in the NFL, so they could hold back the Seahawks’ attack depending on how bad the rain gets.
