Pete Carroll's best: Games 4 and 3

No. 5 - December 2, 2013: Seahawks say, "We that team that beat the Saints"

At the time, the Saints were one of the best teams in the NFC during the 2013 season. The Seahawks showed why they were the best with another spectacular defensive performance. Shutting down an explosive Saints offense led by QB Drew Brees. The Seahawks would allow just seven points in another Monday Night beat down.

Defensive ends Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril would have the play of the day with an awesome strip sack from Avril, which led to a 22-yard fumble return touchdown for Bennett. The Seahawks rolled from that point on. Russell Wilson threw for three touchdowns and 310 yards passing. Seattle's defense held the Saints to just 188 total yards, in a 34-7 blowout win over the Saints.

No. 4 - January 8, 2011: "Beast Quake" erupts in Seattle

The Seahawks in an earlier matchup with the Saints had one of the most iconic moments in the Pete Carroll era. In a game where the Seahawks came in as big underdogs at home against the defending champion Saints, Pete Carroll had his team ready for New Orleans. As the Seahawks hosted the Saints, after just barely squeaking into the playoffs on a win over the Rams the week before.

Seattle's offense came to play against the Saints as they put up more points than they had in any game all season. Matt Hasselback in one of his last games as Seahawks quarterback, put up four touchdowns and 272 yards passing.

The star of the game though was Marshawn Lynch who had 131 yards rushing, including the moment that signified his career in Seattle. A 67-yard touchdown run in which he broke several would-be Saints' tackles en route to the end zone, as Quest Field went wild! Capping a 41-36 Seahawks win!
