Henderson: Wavering Lynch could be key



Saints Sideline Reporter Kristian Garic is in Seattle with the Voice of the Saints, Jim Henderson, and he asked the veteran broadcaster what he's thinking about on his way to the booth Saturday.

Jim started out by acknowledging that the most visible factor in the game will probably be the rainy weather, but the forecast is improving and by gametime, the rain may have stopped, leaving only high winds and a chill for the players to contend with:

"Apart from the weather, things are really going to hinge on how well the Saints can run the ball, and how well Seattle does. You know, Marshawn Lynch has been kind of wearing down over the last 6 games, while the Saints running game has picked up. Pierre Thomas may be able to contribute to that. And that gives them a better chance to protect the ball as well.

Henderson stopped short of predicting the game down to the point, but he did affirm his belief that these are not the same Saints we saw earlier in the season:

"This isn't gonna be 27 point difference for eaither team. I'm going to take the Saints in a very close game!"
