Steelers vs. Colts: TV schedule, radio, live stream
By Kim Myers
The 6-5 Steelers take on the 6-5 Colts in an AFC showdown on Sunday night with playoff implications for both sides.
The Steelers are definitely looking at each game being a must-win from here on out as they’ll need to go at least 4-1 to finish with a shot at a playoff berth. The Colts are tied for the AFC South division lead with the Texans and could be in the same boat the Steelers are in with a loss.
Last year’s game between these two teams resulted in an offensive explosion with Ben Roethlisberger tossing six touchdown passes and a franchise-record 522 yards in a 51-34 win. He might not be in position to match that performance after coming off a concussion suffered in last week’s 39-30 loss to Seattle.
The Colts are working with 40-year-old Matt Hasselbeck at quarterback while Andrew Luck recovers from a lacerated kidney; an injury that just sounds horrendous. But, the team is in the midst of a three-game winning streak. The Steelers secondary will have their hands full with T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncreif.
Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward this week talked about not placing all the blame on the defensive backfield.
"“It’s a defense thing. I have to play better. Everyone has to play better. It’s not just the defensive backfield. That is ludicrous. We are a team, we are a group. When one player doesn’t play well, we all don’t play well because we have to pick up the slack.” – Cam Heyward"
The Steelers need a team win and they need it like there’s no friggin tomorrow. Here are all the details about when and how to catch the action.
