New Orleans vs. Pittsburgh Recap: Saints Shock the World, Defeat Steelers 35-32

New, comments

The Saints defense once again gave up a ton of points in the 4th quarter, but time ran out before the Steelers could overcome the total deficit. The Saints offense came alive in the second quarter after a sluggish start and avoided costly turnovers. The Falcons and Saints are tied atop the NFC South with 5-7 records with the Falcons owning the tiebreaker. Next up for the Saints is a home game against the Carolina Panthers.
