New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) – Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, including an eight-yard score to Lance Moore with 2:37 remaining, as the New Orleans Saints took down the Pittsburgh Steelers, 20-10, in a clash between the past two Super Bowl winners from the Superdome.

Brees completed 34-of-44 passes for 305 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception for the Saints (5-3), who bounced back from a 30-17 loss to the Browns last weekend.

Moore caught seven passes for 54 yards with a TD and Marques Colston hauled in six passes for 75 yards and a score for New Orleans, which was without running backs Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas. That led to the Saints compiling just 30 rushing yards on Sunday night.

Ben Roethlisberger connected on 17-of-28 passes for 195 yards and an interception for the Steelers (5-2), who had won two in a row.

Rashard Mendenhall carried the ball 15 times for 71 yards and a touchdown.
