SEATTLE — Brian Johnson kicked a 33-yard field goal with 1:56 remaining in his NFL debut, and the New Orleans Saints capitalized on a series of Seattle mistakes for a 13-10 win over the Seahawks. 

Alvin Kamara carried the load for New Orleans and Jameis Winston made a handful of plays when needed. 

But the Saints escaped Seattle thanks largely to a series of blunders by the home team. Seattle was flagged for two crucial penalties on New Orleans' deciding drive. 

Seahawks backup quarterback Geno Smith fell to 0-2 starting in place of the injured Russell Wilson, and Seattle has lost three straight overall. 

Smith went 12 of 22 for 167 yards and was sacked five times. He hit DK Metcalf for an 84-yard touchdown in the first quarter.   Seahawks kicker Jason Myers missed two field goals from 44 and 53 yards.

At halftime, former Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck was inducted into the team's Ring of Honor.  Hasselbeck played in Seattle from 2001 to 2010.
