It was pouring in Seattle for hours leading up to the Seahawks-Saints game. The rain was coming down in sheets and sideways due to the gusting winds a couple hours before kickoff. The Weather Channel warned that strong winds, from 25-30 miles per hour, in Seattle might cause power outages in the city. New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees and his receivers couldn't have been thrilled to wake up to that weather, although it probably wasn't exciting for Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson either.
