The Pittsburgh Steelers and New Orleans Saints face off in Week 10 of NFL action from Acrisure Stadium on Sunday.

The New Orleans Saints will look to bounce back from a 27-13 loss to Baltimore last time out to drop to 3-6 on the year. Andy Dalton threw for 1,385 yards, 10 touchdowns and 5 interceptions on 65.3% passing while Alvin Kamara leads the Saints rushing with 443 yards rushing and Taysom Hill has 343 rushing yards and 5 touchdowns. Chris Olave leads the Saints with 43 catches for 618 receiving yards while Kamara has 319 receiving yards and another pair of Saints also have over 200 receiving yards this season. On defense, Pete Werner has a team-high 74 total tackles, including 53 solo tackles. Demario Davis has a team record 6 sacks while Cameron Jordan has 5 sacks. Tyrann Mathieu also has a pair of interceptions this season for New Orleans.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be poised to rebound from a 35-13 loss to Pittsburgh before their bye week last week, sitting at 2-6 heading into this game. Kenny Pickett has thrown for 962 yards, 2 touchdowns and 8 interceptions on 67.9% passing while Najee Harris leads the Steelers in rushing with 361 yards rushing this season. Diontae Johnson leads Pittsburgh with 43 grabs for 372 receiving yards while George Pickens and Pat Freiermuth each have over 300 receiving yards this season. On defense, Myles Jack has a total of 72 tackles, including 43 solo tackles, while Alex Highsmith has a team-best 6.5 sacks and Minkah Fitzpatrick has 3 interceptions this season.

New Orleans is 38-17 ATS in its last 55 road games and 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games in November, while the pluses are 4- 0 in their last 4 games after a win against the spread. Pittsburgh is 4-1-1 ATS in its last 6 home games and 1-7-1 ATS in its last 9 against a team with a losing record while the Unders have a 6-1 record in their last 7 home games.

I understand the reasoning for supporting or disappearing on either side in this game, but I’m looking at the underside here. I have claimed Kenny Pickett to be the starting QB for Pittsburgh and I acknowledge that, but there is also some acceptance that there will be growing pains as he gets more and more comfortable . The problem is that this is not currently the case. On the other side, I don’t support the Saints with Andy Dalton leading the attack as he continues to struggle to lead the Saints to the top level. I think it’s going to be a slopfest for 60 minutes with lots of setbacks between the 20s. Give me the bottom.
