Pittsburgh Steelers vs Indianapolis Colts: What could be a thrilling finish
Coming off a victory on Monday Night Football against the Miami Dolphins, the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-4) will look to take on the Indianapolis Colts (5-2). I believe this game could come down to a last-second play to determine the winner of the matchup.
At the beginning of the year, the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. the Indianapolis Colts was the game I had selected for the game of the year. This was before Andrew Luck decided to retire from football, and Ben Roethlisberger suffered a season-ending elbow injury. Regardless, this week 9 contest still has the potential to be great.
The outcome of Sunday should be a good indication of just how even these teams are to one another. Each team will have to find ways to replace some of their most productive offensive players, though. The Colts will be missing wide receiver T.Y Hilton, while the Steelers will be missing running back James Conner. Two of the most productive players at their respected position.
So far, in the 2019 NFL season, the Pittsburgh Steelers running back committee has dealt with a handful of injuries. This week the Steelers will not only be without starting running back James Conner, but also rookie Benny Snell. Snell has made the most of his snaps when presented with an opportunity. Both will be missed tremendously on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.
