Drew Brees and New Orleans are in pole position for the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC playoffs if he can pull out the win in the Saints-Steelers game today.

After Pittsburgh knotted the score at 14 late in the second quarter, the Saints scored a field goal right before intermission to take a 17-14 halftime lead.

ESPN has updated its prediction for the game through its Football Power Index model.

ESPN’s Football Power Index is giving the Saints a 75.8 percent chance of a victory in the second half.

The Saints and the Steelers are playing on CBS.

The second half should begin soon.
