Saints/Steelers Juxtaposition

December 24, 2018

The (13-2) New Orleans Saints are the NFC top seed, clinching the status with a (31-28) win over the (8-6-1) Pittsburgh Steelers, yesterday in New Orleans.

New Orleans was the NFC top seed just one other time and that season, (2009), they won the Super Bowl.

Now the Steelers, who were truly hurt by pass interference calls on three Saints’ touchdown drives, need help to make the NFL playoffs, something they were heavily favored to do when the season started.

No worry needed for the Steelers’ glory nor the Rooney family that owns them.

Pittsburgh won their first Super Bowl crown in New Orleans vs the Vikings, who still have not won one. The Steelers have won six, more than any other team.

Meanwhile the Rooneys will soon sell Yonkers Raceway and all that entails and yields.

Staying “above the belt,” the Rooneys association there began with the Steelers’ first playoff season in 1972. It has been quite a run of success, no matter the ’18 season result.
