PITTSBURGH, PA —
It was over when...
With time expiring and the Saints trailing by 3, Lones Seibler kicked his second field goal of the game to secure the 20-14 win.
Mike Wallace caught 7 passes for 153 yards including a 55 yard touchdown, which occured on the first pass play of the game.
The Steelers shut out the Saints for well over 3 quarters, but got a scare in the 4th quarter as Drew Brees came to life, but it was not enough as the Steelers salvaged the win, courtesy of Dennis Dixon's passing and running performence.
Since Rashard Mendenhall fumbled the ball, he has been alternating series with Mewelde Moore, but remains the starter quoted from Mike Tomlin during the press conference.
Dennis Dixon renewed his 2009 form and built upon it's success against the Saints.
Next week the Pittsburgh Steelers host the winless 0-4 Cleveland Browns who swept the Steelers last year.
