Week 13: vs New Orleans Saints

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Ben Roethlisberger watched LeVeon Bell rush for 204 yards and a TD at Tennessee - he did eventually throw the game-winning pass to Antonio Brown at 9:01 in the fourth quarter (21/32 for 207 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown for Roethlisberger; 11 targets for 9/91/1 receiving for Brown that day). As usual, Heath Miller (five targets for 5/71/0 receiving) was in the mix, and Martavis Bryant and Markus Wheaton both saw five targets (though neither did much with their opportunities - Bryant recorded 2/11/0 receiving while Wheaton had 1/6/0). It was a respectable rebound from the upset loss to the Jets during Week 10. This week the Steelers return to hospitable Heinz Field and welcome the Saints' 23rd-ranked pass D to the holiday weekend - New Orleans averages 253.3 net passing yards allowed per game, with 17 passing scores given up vs. six interceptions generated (26th in the NFL) and 23 sacks recorded (18th) this year. Joe Flacco threw 18/24 for 234 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions at New Orleans last week (one sack for -9 yards taken); Andy Dalton threw three TDs there two games ago (16/22 for 219 net yards passing, with one sack taken for -1 yards). This looks like a good matchup for Roethlisberger and Brown.
