The Steelers were shut out in their second exhibition game, losing 17-0 to the Eagles at home as a 2.5-point home favorite last week. With Ben Roethlisberger out, Landry Jones was an awful 12-of-20 passing for 111 yards and four interceptions. Dustin Vaughan didn't fare much better at 7-of-13 passing for 67 yards, but at least he avoided turnovers.

The Saints didn't look much sharper offensively in their second preseason game either, falling 16-9 to the Texans last Saturday. Drew Brees attempted eight passes, completing five for 29 yards with an interception. His backup Luke McCOwn was 14-of-19 for 118 yards with no touchdowns and no picks.

OUR PICK: The Saints scored 22 points in Foxboro their opening exhibition game, so the nine-point total they had last week was an aberration. The same could be said about the Steelers scoring zero points last week. Roethlisberger is expected to play tonight after not suiting up for either Pittsburgh preseason game. Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown are likely to play tonight as well, meaning the Steelers should contribute heavily to the scoring. Take the over.
