The Steelers are out to an early lead in Sunday’s home game against the Saints.
Wide receiver George Pickens took a handoff from quarterback Kenny Pickett and ran into the end zone from a yard out. The score put the Steelers up 7-0 with just over five minutes to play in the first quarter.
The score capped a 12-play, 57-yard drive that included a fourth down conversion. Pickett hit running back Jaylen Warren for a seven-yard gain to keep the drive going and then hit wide receiver Diontae Johnson for an 11-yard gain that put the Steelers inside the 10-yard-line.
The two teams traded punts on their first possessions and the Saints will now try to get something going offensively.
