THE LAST MEETING

Saints 31, Pittsburgh Steelers 28; December 23, 2018 @ Mercedes-Benz Superdome – The Saints clinched the NFC's number one seed for the postseason in their third consecutive victory, defeating the Steelers at the Superdome.

New Orleans won on a 2-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Drew Brees to Michael Thomas with 1:25 to play. To further the drama, the play initially wasn't called a touchdown but the replay booth reversed it to the approving roar of the 73,086 in attendance. Pittsburgh moved into scoring position but with 32 seconds to play defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins forced JuJu Smith-Schuster to fumble the ball with New Orleans recovering, sealing the victory, the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage for the NFC playoffs.
