The 2023 season has been a rollercoaster ride for Steelers fans. After suffering two blowout losses early in the year to the 49ers and Texans, the Steelers bounced back to win 4 of 5 games from Week 5 to Week 10. Unfortunately, this team is coming off one of their most disappointing two-game stretches in recent memory.

The Steelers have lost back-to-back games against two-win teams in the Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots. In both games, Pittsburgh got behind by multiple scores before attempting to rally back and ultimately falling short. This made for some unwatchable football that was hard for fans to stomach.

This week, Mike Tomlin's team has a must-win game against the Indianapolis Colts -- who also boast a 7-6 record entering Week 15. With six teams currently tied at 7-6 in the AFC, the winner could be in the driver's seat to a playoff spot while the loser's playoff hopes could be essentially shattered. Here's how you can be sure to catch the Steelers vs. Colts game today.

Interestingly, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Indianapolis Colts are set to square off for Saturday afternoon action on December 16th at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. This is one of three games that will take place today in Week 15.

Following a primetime game on Thursday Night Football, the Steelers get another game in which they don't have to compete with other NFL clubs for viewership. This game has a scheduled kickoff for 4:33 p.m. Eastern Time this afternoon.

Fans can watch the game nationally on NFL Network. Some local areas may be able to view the game on CBS. NFL Network's Rich Eisen and Kurt Warner will be calling the game.

The Steelers have been without Kenny Pickett since the former first-round quarterback was injured halfway through the Cardinals game in Week 14. In his absence, backup QB Mitch Trubisky has struggled mightily to move the football and put points on the board.

Because of this, Pittsburgh is actually managing fewer points per game over their past three contests than they did when Matt Canada was the team's offensive coordinator. Meanwhile, the Colts are quietly averaging 24.2 points per game -- good for 8th in the NFL entering Week 15. While Indy doesn't have a lot of star power, they have a well-rounded roster and have executed well in recent weeks -- winning 4 of their last 5 games.

With both teams knotted at 7-6, the loser could potentially drop all the way to the 10th seed in the AFC (depending on the results around the league in Week 15), while the winner could help catapult their odds of making the playoffs this year. This feels like a do-or-die contest with how tight the AFC is, so you aren't going to want to miss the Steelers vs. Colts game today.
