(SEATTLE) — Russell Wilson threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns as the Seattle Seahawks blasted the New Orleans Saints 34-7 on Monday night.
The Seahawks (11-1) clinched a playoff spot with the victory, and now have a two game lead over the Saints (9-3) and Carolina Panthers (9-3) in the race for home-field advantage in the NFC.
“For us to come out in that fashion and to win that game the way that we did was awesome,” Wilson said.
Drew Brees completed 23 passes for 147 yards and one touchdown, but also lost a fumble in the first quarter that was returned for a score.
“We took one in the chin today,” Brees said. “We got outplayed today. They played great. They made a lot of plays, and we didn’t.”
The seven points scored by the Saints matches the fewest points they’ve ever scored in a game since Sean Payton became the head coach in 2006.
Russell Wilson is now 14-0 at home as a starter.
