The Pittsburgh Steelers used a dominant first half to beat the New Orleans Saints 20-7 in the NFL preseason opener at Canton, Ohio.
The win came in Mike Tomlin's debut as only the third head coach for the Steelers in 38 years.
Ben Roethlisberger was sharp in his only series, completing two of his three throws for 73 yards to Cedrick Wilson.
Pittsburgh's first-stringers were, by far, more efficient than New Orleans' starters, who missed blocks and dropped passes on offense and couldn't handle Roethlisberger or Charlie Batch when they threw.
In the first half, Pittsburgh outgained New Orleans 305-56, including 205-32 in the air. The Saints' third-stringers staged a 16-play, 72-yard drive capped by a fourth-down, one-yard scoring pass from Jason Fife to Kevin Dudley to open the second half.
