Pittsbugrh (+6) at New Orleans (12-23-18)

Recommended Posts

4:25 EST.. Jim Nantz and 'The Mad Babbler" Tony Romo on CBS

over-under 53 inside the SuperDome

 

Pittsburgh future Hall-of-Famer (yes he is) QB 'Big Ben' Rothlisbergher (388 of 580, 4,462, 30 TDs, 15 INTs) plays (fir him) a rare game indoors with 1,000-yard boys WRs 'Downtown' Antonio Brown (90 catches, 1,112 yards, 13 TDs) and JuJu Schuster (95 catches, 1,274 yards) 

3rd-string halfback Jaylen Samuels carried 19 times for 142 yards.

Pittsburgh has gained 5,681 yards and 334 first downs in 14 games but Ben faces a NOLA defense that has 43 sacks .

 

The Saints Hall of Fame QB Drew ('King Creole') Brees (37 of 450, 31 Ts, 5 INTs) leads the NFL in completion percentage (74.9%) but NOLA has only scored 50 points in the last three games.    Brees wants the ball to get to Alvin Komara who has run for 860 yards and caught 77 passes for 627 yards.

But the Steelers have 45 sacks led by TJ (my brother is good, too) Watt with 11 sacks.

 

This is a major showdown because both team have a lot in their hands.   The Steelers the AFC North if they win their last two games. Nobody else can be 10-5-1. New Orleans is the top seed in the entire NFC if they win their final two games. Nobody else can be 14-2.

Can the Saints defense, which has allowed just 60 points in their last six games...…..stop Pittsburgh's 300-yard-per game pass attack?

 

Over-under Pitt passing yards = 300 (over)

Over-under points =  53 (over)

Over-under on Ben Rothlisberger passes =  50 (over)

Over-under  on promos for 'Madam Secretary"  and 'NCIS - New Orleans'   = 5 (over)

Over-under on times Tony Romo pauses to take a break =  10 (under)

 

 

If you can get 6 points, take the Steelers...//Pitt rarely loses by a TD or more

At N.O. is the key. I see the Saints rolling over the Steelers. Brees has been down today he will shine.

Okay, we're officially prohibited from complaining about calls for the next year.  We got lucky in our game and got lucky as hell there.

"Tough angle"  

  

No that's a terrible terrible call that handed the Saints 7 points. Until you admit that and refs are punished, the NFL will stay in its decline.

  

Alright I'm turning it back off. I can't watch this garbage.

That was basically a 10 point call.  Steelers would have taken over on downs in good field position.

It still pretty much comes down to this game for us, otherwise we're relying on the Browns, Bengals and Jags.

Brees just made a great play on a deflected pass...

He jumped in an batted it down to keep the Steelers from picking it off

 

Saints went in to score..24-14

Browns, Bengals and Jags... sounds like a punchline for a joke.

Just like I predicted so far, 1 more score and Drew can put this puppy to bed and we will win next week and be in the Playoffs.
