In what felt like a microcosm of their season, the Pittsburgh Steelers fell to the New Orleans Saints 31-28 Sunday.

As it currently sits, the Steelers (8-6-1) now sit in 2nd place in the AFC North to the Baltimore Ravens (9-6), and now need the Ravens to lose to the Browns. The Steelers also have to beat the Bengals next week at home. Both games have been flexed to 4:25 ET on WTAJ.

Two pivotal fourth quarter turnovers, paired with a couple questionable pass interference calls doomed what should’ve been a statement win in the Big Easy.
