METAIRIE, La. — The New Orleans Saints‘ defense has played remarkably well so far this preseason — and throughout all of training camp, really.
But Friday night’s preseason date with the Pittsburgh Steelers will provide the best test by far to show just how much New Orleans’ embattled defense has improved since last season.
For one thing, it’s the third preseason game, when teams typically play their starters the most — and actually do a little bit of game-planning. For another thing, the Steelers’ offense is really, really good.
