3 Steelers X-factors for showdown with the Colts
The Pittsburgh Steelers find themselves in a bit of a groove after consecutive wins. They face off against a tough opponent in Pittsburgh Sunday versus the Colts.
The Steelers are battling each week for their season to stay afloat. After a rough week one, the Steelers have been in every game they have lost and had some unlucky timing for costly mistakes that could have resulted in wins.
The fight this team shows without Ben Roethlisberger is great to see, especially from an offense that was down to its third-string quarterback just two weeks ago. They will need all that fight to make this season better than a top ten pick that they no longer have.
The Colts have lost just two games in 2019, once to the Chargers and once to the Raiders. They have been in some close games each week, and their largest margin of victory is just seven points.
The Steelers have won five straight games against the Colts. This match-up will be a bit different, however, with no Ben Roethlisberger and no Andrew Luck.
The two teams are looking to find their ways with new quarterbacks for the 2019 season. The Colts are having a better time with that now than Pittsburgh, but the Steelers are coming around with a boost from their defense.
If the Steelers want to win this game, they need these three x-factors to have a big game. With a Colts x-factor, T.Y. Hilton, already out for the game, the Steelers can take advantage and break even at 4-4 following this game.
