Mike Tomlin isn't going to complain about the officiating. Or lament the turnovers and missed opportunities over the last month that have the Pittsburgh Steelers on the outside of the playoffs looking in heading into Week 17.The longtime head coach doesn't see the point in it. Spending too much time looking back and not enough time looking forward can be just as dangerous as any of the missteps or handful of questionable calls that have hit the Steelers (8-6-1) during a slide that's seen them drop four of five to fall behind Baltimore for the top spot in the AFC North."The bottom line is when they're done New Orleans Saints Tyeler Davison Jersey , they're done, you move on," Tomlin said Tuesday. "What truly defines you (are) the plays that lie ahead."Maybe, but the sting of a 31-28 loss on the road in New Orleans on Sunday could linger well into the offseason if Pittsburgh can't slip past the Ravens to reach the playoffs for the fifth straight year. The Steelers need to beat Cincinnati and hope Cleveland beats Baltimore on the road after letting another fourth-quarter lead slip away against the Saints.Pittsburgh had its chances. But its final three possessions in New Orleans ended with two fumbles sandwiched around a fake punt in which up back Roosevelt Nix was stopped a foot short of a first down that would have allowed the Steelers to bleed the clock. The Saints responded by driving for the go-ahead score, one abetted by a fourth-down pass interference call against cornerback Joe Haden that gave New Orleans a first down.Several Steelers contended Drew Brees' pass intended for Michael Thomas was tipped at the line, which would have negated the penalty. The league reviewed it and agreed with the call on the field. So did Tomlin, at least to a point: Tomlin doesn't believe defensive end Stephon Tuitt got a hand on the ball either, but did offer an addendum."I also don't believe it was (pass interference)," he said.It was the second pass interference call against Haden on the day. He drew a 33-yard penalty in the first quarter when officials ruled he illegally prevented New Orleans running back Alvin Kamara from trying to haul in a Brees pass that sailed well over the head of both players. New Orleans running back Mark Ingram bulled over from 1 yard on the next play.Tomlin, a member of the NFL's competition committee known to critique the officiating at times, refused to blame his team's current position on one iffy call. Asked to describe how a team responds to a tough break, the father of three shrugged."How do you deal with it when your kids don't listen?" Tomlin said. "You move on. You focus on the things within your control."That's an approach 鈥?for this week anyway 鈥?that might not have any impact on whether the Steelers play into January. The beat-up Bengals (6-9) have won a single game since Halloween and oddsmakers have already made Pittsburgh a heavy favorite. Yet, even a convincing win won't matter if the Ravens turn back the Browns and the season-ending matchup between Indianapolis and Tennessee on Sunday night ends in a tie.Tomlin pointed out Sunday won't be any different than any other weekend, when the results from other games have a ripple effect on the course of Pittsburgh's season. It's just that it will be monitored more closely. He's got enough to worry about without spending the day glancing up at the scoreboard.The loss in New Orleans wasn't much different than most of the five defeats that came before it. The Steelers turned over the ball more than they took it away and couldn't get a defensive stop when they absolutely needed one.Five of Pittsburgh's six losses have come by a touchdown or less. The margin for error is small. Too often the Steelers have been on the wrong side it."We're not going to make it to be something mystical, or pretend it's something out of our control," Tomlin said. "It is preparation, detail, schematics, coaching. All of those things are very tangible. We've fallen short for a variety or myriad of reasons."NOTES: S Sean Davis (quadriceps) and LB Vince Williams (toe) could be limited early in the week after getting hurt in New Orleans. ... Tomlin is optimistic RB James Conner could be available. Conner has missed each of the last three games. ... Tomlin defended his decision to call for a fake punt on fourth-and-5 at the Pittsburgh 42 with just over four minutes to play. "We're not going to play not to lose," Tomlin said. "We're going to play to win. The guys understand it. That's just how we live."What to look for in the New Orleans Saints preseason finale against the Rams The New Orleans Saints wrap up the 2018 preseason with a home battle against the Los Angeles Rams this evening. While we got to see the majority of the Saints starters and top units for much of the first half during last week's impressive 36-7 victory over the L.A. Chargers, expect a much different show during this preseason finale. New Orleans begins their regular season in just ten days from tonight Cheap Tyeler Davison Youth Jersey , with a home showdown against division rival Tampa Bay, while the Rams play their opener on Monday night against the Oakland Raiders. Expect both squads to have a very simplistic approach to their game plan, and if any of the starters play at all, it won't likely be for more than a series or two. With that being said, each team still has some important roster decisions to make before the league's cut-down period over the following Labor Day weekend. Thankfully, the Saints backup quarterback question seems to have been answered, for this year anyway, when the team traded with the New York Jets for Teddy Bridgewater on Wednesday afternoon. But there are still plenty of things to be watching closely when these two NFC contenders face off tonight. Here are a few things to be watching for from the New Orleans perspective during the game. Wide Receiver Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsThere were some fans who were concerned, or perhaps confused, that wideouts Tre'quan Smith and Cameron Meredith were still in the lineup so late in the game against the Chargers. Don't be. Sean Payton and the coaching staff clearly wanted to give backup quarterback Taysom Hill some of the top offensive unit to work with through the second half. They also clearly wanted to see something specific from second year wide receiver Austin Carr, who started the game with Drew Brees and the number one unit. Carr caught 3 passes for 38 yards, and has had a solid training camp. He is a shifty prototypical slot receiver with good hands, and looks to be making a late push for a roster spot. The Saints normally keep five wideouts on the active roster, and return man Brandon Tate looks to have the edge for the fifth spot behind superstar Michael Thomas, impressive rookie Smith, and veterans Meredith and Ted Ginn Jr. Carr looks to have moved ahead of undrafted rookie Keith Kirkwood and returning vet Tommylee Lewis on the preseason depth chart. An impressive performance in this final game could convince coaches to keep a sixth receiver, or perhaps even make a surprising decision to move on from a veteran like Ginn, who has struggled throughout preseason. Running Back Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsThe running game wasn't as impressive against the Chargers as it had been in the first two preseason games, with the running backs averaging less than 3 yards per carry. Jonathan Williams had a particularly rough time, finishing with a negative three yards on his 3 carries. He does still look to have the edge for the third running back spot behind Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, but a battle still remains to round out the position. Rookie sixth round pick Boston Scott continues to show good burst around the edge New Orleans Saints Kaden Elliss Jersey , and adds an extra dimension with his kick return abilities. Second year back Trey Edmunds has seen snaps at both fullback and running back, but has yet to have a stand out performance. Veteran Shane Vereen is a solid receiving threat out of the backfield, but struggles to pick up yardage between the tackles. These 4 backs will likely split the bulk of the snaps against Los Angeles, and their roster spots may be contingent on a productive performance. OFFENSIVE LINE Jake Roth-USA TODAY SportsWith the exception of rookie 7th round pick Will Clapp, who has improved each week, the Saints reserve line has been inconsistent. Veteran guard/tackle Jermon Bushrod looks in jeopardy of being a roster cut, and Josh LeRibeus has not shown the improvement expected after playing some solid snaps last season. Michael Ola has gotten quite a bit of playing time at tackle this preseason, but may have been passed on the depth chart by rookie 4th round pick Rick Leonard. The coaches are still high on Cameron Tom, who along with Clapp is capable of playing any of the interior line positions. New Orleans is likely going to keep three of these linemen to begin the season, and expect all to receive extensive playing time against the Rams, hopefully showing that the team can have confidence in it's line depth. Marcus Davenport Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsThe 14th overall pick in the draft finally saw the field last week against the Chargers, and flashed the ability that caused the team to trade up to get him. Davenport would play 15 defensive snaps, and showed good disruption from the edge, finishing with a few quarterback pressures, a half sack, and an impressive tackle for loss on a Charger end around that showcased his athleticism. After missing much of training camp and the first two games of the preseason, we may see Davenport get a good bit of snaps during this contest to get him up to game speed. Alex Okafor and Trey Hendrickson are expected to get the majority of the snaps at defensive end opposite Cam Jordan in the Saints base defense at the start of the regular season, but Davenport could be a disruptive rotational player who should earn more snaps as the season progresses. UNDRAFTED FREE AGENTS Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty ImagesTaylor Stallworth has played impressive football throughout the preseason, and could be very much in the mix for a job at defensive tackle. New Orleans already has possible break-out stars inside with Sheldon Rankins and David Onyemata, along with reliable run defender Tyeler Davison and Devaroe Lawrence, who looks like he's played his way onto the team with an outstanding preseason. Will Stallworth be able to overtake Davison or Lawrence for a roster spot? Wide receiver Keith Kirkwood started out the preseason strong New Orleans Saints Kaden Elliss Jersey , but has leveled off in recent weeks, looking like he has been passed up by Carr, as mentioned previously. Rookie cornerback Linden Stephens faces a similar challenge at an equally crowded position. Stephens has played solid on special teams, and has seen some defensive reps late in all three exhibition games. The cornerback position already has a star like Marshon Lattimore, along with Ken Crawley and Patrick Robinson locked into spots. Arthur Maulet and Natrell Jamerson likely have played their way onto the team, leaving one, perhaps two spots up for grabs among some talented players. Stephens will probably need a monumental performance to warrant consideration for the active roster, and must still overtake fellow rookie Kamrin Moore, the "other" Marcus Williams, who returned an interception for a touchdown last week, or a veteran like PJ. Williams, who has been on almost everyone's roster bubble seemingly all summer. VETERANS FIGHTING FOR A JOB Photo by Jayne Kamin-Oncea/Getty ImagesCornerback P.J. Williams is one of a handful of Saints veterans who are in a fierce battle to keep their roster spots. Edge rusher Hau'oli Kikaha, defensive end George Johnson, and linebacker Nate Stupar may be on the outside looking in on perhaps the deepest defense we've seen in the Sean Payton era. Couldplayers like Ginn, P.J., linebackers Craig Robertson and A.J. Klein, or Davison along the defensive line be potential trade candidates because of higher salary cap numbers or the performance of some of the young newcomers? The deadline for all NFL teams to reduce their rosters from 90 to 53 players is at 4 p.m. eastern time on Saturday. New Orleans coaches face some tough decisions throughout one of the most talented rosters in the league, and there will be some talented players who may not make this squad. Who can make one final push for a spot when the Saints take on the Rams this evening?
