The storyline
The winners of the past two Super Bowls get together, with the Saints trying to shrug off a post-championship hangover.

Why you should watch
No way can Drew Brees throw four picks again. Ben Roethlisger faces his first real hostile environment since his suspension. We won't get another replay-fueled wacky ending like the Steelers benefitted from last week, will we?

Did you know?
The Steelers have won four consecutive road games. ... Pittsburgh's Lawrence Timmons leads the team with 60 tackles. ... Drew Brees is one of only two Saints to throw for 20,000 yards with the franchise (the other is Archie Manning). ... New Orleans' Marques Colston has a TD catch in three consecutive games.
