The Steelers average slightly more than that per game on the road, though there is a bit of an outlier with the stunning six turnovers in the opener. But they also had games with three and four turnovers in Jacksonville and Denver. And the Saints have the ninth-most takeaways in the NFL Football Game.
The New Orleans Saints are coming off three straight road games, returning to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this Sunday to host the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Saints went 2-1 in those contests, despite some offensive inconsistencies that caused them to average less than 17 points during that three game stretch. A primary reason that they pulled off those two wins was because of the standout play of their defense.
This might be the biggest game on the NFL. The Pittsburgh Steelers will try to keep their playoff hopes alive on Sunday when they travel to Louisiana to take on the NFC’s top-seeded New Orleans Saints. After losing three consecutive games, the Steelers picked up their biggest win of the season last Sunday over the New England Patriots.
