On Nov. 21 the Seattle Seahawks played a New Orleans Saints team at the Superdome and got, essentially, waxed, 34-19. On Saturday, New Orleans plays the Seahawks in Seattle and that previous game means, essentially, nothing, according to the players.

"We've been here before but we've got to know it's a different season now," Saints wide receiver Robert Meachem said Monday. "Everybody is 0-0, everybody's record is clean. We've got to just go play."
