Sunday's game between the Seattle Seahawks and the New Orleans Saints should be a matchup between two of the NFL's greatest quarterbacks.

Instead, it'll be Russell Wilson against Teddy Bridgewater/Taysom Hill. No offense to those latter quarterbacks, but their resumes pale in comparison to the man they're replacing.

Drew Brees is out for the next six-plus weeks as he recovers from hand surgery.

Wilson sent a cool message to Brees ahead of Sunday's game.

"Going to miss you out there Sunday," he wrote. "Prayers up!"

The Saints have a tough hill to climb with Brees sidelined, as New Orleans travels to Seattle this weekend and hosts Dallas at home next Sunday night.

New Orleans and Seattle are set to kick off at 4:25 p.m. E.T. on Sunday.

The game will be on CBS.
