"I know the fans are going to be all insane, so we can't wait". But Pittsburgh's defense and special teams unit bailed Ridley out. With bigger bettors on the Steelers, this line had dropped from -6 to -5.5, but is back up to -6 as of writing (see live odds here).

"That's one thing these guys have done a good job with, coming up with plays when we needed it".

Saints head coach Sean Payton opted to go for it on 4th-and-1 inside Steelers' territory in the first quarter, and Drew Brees threw a deep ball to the end zone on what looked like a busted play. But from the standpoint of offensive production, playoff history and promoting optimal health, the Saints know they'd be best served by beating Pittsburgh.

"We've known this was the goal was to get this, to make it come through our house", Morstead said.

A play later, Mark Ingram scored from a yard out for his franchise-record 50th rushing touchdown, surpassing Deuce McAllister's mark set in 2008. But he is the Steelers' leading receiver, with 95 catches for 1,274 yards plus six touchdowns. Smith-Schuster injured his groin during Thursday's practice and did not practice on Friday.

Saints: Left tackle Terron Armstead left the game in the first half, returned to action a few series later, but then left the game again for good in the second half.

Saints: Finish the season at home against Carolina on Sunday.

The Steelers' three-game losing streak lost them costly ground in the AFC North race; if they lose Sunday and the Baltimore Ravens win - no small task, as they also have a highly challenging road game against the Chargers - the Ravens will take over the division lead.
