Brees leads Saints past sluggish Steelers 35-32

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Drew Brees threw five touchdowns for the ninth time in his career as the New Orleans Saints dominated the sloppy Pittsburgh Steelers 35-32 on Sunday.

Kenny Stills caught five passes for a career-high 162 yards and a score as the Saints (5-7) ended a three-game losing streak by restoring a little bit of respectability and a sense of order to the NFC South.

The Steelers (7-5) kept New Orleans tight end Jimmy Graham without a catch, but it hardly mattered. Brees worked Pittsburgh's secondary over anyway. Ben Watson, Marques Colston, Erik Lorig and Nick Toon hauled in touchdowns as New Orleans romped.

Ben Roethlisberger passed for 435 yards and two touchdowns, but also threw two interceptions for the Steelers.
