This is why I think he is a good start, the Steelers will be able to spread the NO defense out. I have seen stats thrown around mentioning how their run defense has “turned it around”since week 10. Here is that schedule:
None of those teams have shown to have as complete an offense as Pitt. The Steelers “should” be able to force that Saints to defend the whole field, instead of allowing them to focus on stopping one aspect of it. A dual threat RB like Samuels may provide more of a challenge, not to mention the Saints will probably be more focused on stopping Pitt’s passing game. The primary concern in my eyes is that home field dominance the Saints have exhibited.
