Must-See TV: 17 games that highlight 2013 schedule
3 Saints games made the list!


10) New Orleans at Seattle, Week 13 -- I'm tempted to build this synopsis around the idea of it being the greatest matchup of "short'' quarterbacks in the game's history, but I'm sure some loyal reader will remind me that Eddie LeBaron and Frankie Albert faced off once in 1952. No matter, give me the Saints' Drew Brees and the guy who played like him as a sensational third-round rookie a year ago, Seattle's Russell Wilson.

The quarterback angle is the best storyline, but it's not the only one. This is the first time New Orleans has ventured back to Seattle since getting run over by Marshawn "Beast Mode'' Lynch and the 7-9 division-winning Seahawks in the first round of the 2010 playoffs. That ended the Saints' defense of their glorious Super Bowl title run, and not all that much has gone right for New Orleans ever since.

14. New Orleans at New England, Week 6 -- First team to score 60 wins. The Saints and Patriots run the two most prolific offenses in the game today, and they might run wild in this one, given the weather should still be habitable by mid to late October in Foxboro. In addition, the matching of wits between Sean Payton and Bill Belichick is good theater because neither coach is afraid to gamble and both have supreme -- and we mean supreme -- confidence in the wisdom of their own counsel. I'll bet Brady and Belichick still aren't over that 38-17 Monday Night Football bushwhacking the Saints delivered on their heads in November 2009, the first time I remember thinking that New Orleans' season might indeed be Super Bowl bound.

17) New Orleans at New York Jets, Week 9 -- I have very little reason to hype the actual matchup between the Saints and Jets, other than a rare meeting of the Ryan coaching brothers. Beside that, they don't have a ton in common other than they both know what it's like to play Jonathan Vilma in the middle of their defense. But, New Orleans' trip to MetLife Stadium will be the closest that returning Saints head coach Sean Payton gets to the NFL's mid-town New York office this season, so keep your head on a swivel, Roger Goodell. Don't even mention it. You can thank me later.

The NO at Seattle game is on everyone's list

Which is the older twin ours or the Jets? (Still don't believe we picked this guy up - damn he'd better do something)
