Advocate staff photo by MATTHEW HINTON-- New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham (80) takes down Seattle Seahawks strong safety Kam Chancellor (31) as Chancellor attempted to make an interception in a NFL NFC divisional football playoff game between the New Orleans Saints and the Seattle Seahawks at Century Link Field in Seattle, Wash.
