Saints v. Steelers (what are the chances?)

I've heard that the Steelers are the favorite versus the New Orleans Saints, but it seems hard to believe considering the Saints' 6-2 record and the Steelers' 2-6 mark. On the other hand, the Steelers have outplayed their opponent in 6 of 8 games this year, and most teams have struggled to beat Pittsburgh even in games where the Steelers have turned the ball over four or five times. That said, The Steelyard gives Pittsburgh a fifty percent chance of beating New Orleans. Last week, QB Ben Roethlisberger looked, more or less, like his old self. If Big Ben is indeed back on the road towards reasonably good health, and Pittsburgh doesn't fumble the game away on special teams Steelers fans will be celebrating a victory at Heinz Field. But right now those look like big "if's."
