Saints headed to Seattle or St. Louis

SEATTLE -- The view from Qwest Field has become as clear as the cloudless sky here in chilly Seattle.

The New Orleans Saints will visit the winner of the St. Louis Rams-Seattle Seahawks game, scheduled to kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET. The Saints became the fifth seed after losing to Tampa Bay. The NFC West champ will be the fourth seed.

The Rams and Seahawks both lost at New Orleans this season. The Rams played the Saints tough in St. Louis last season, but much has changed since then and much more will be on the line this time, should a rematch take place.
