The Still Curtain writer's predictions are mixed in this AFC matchup

"I know that Mike Tomlin has a history of bouncing back from ugly losses, but this team is legitimately bad right now and can't score points. The Colts are manageable, in theory, but Mitch Trubisky was incompetent at the helm last week. Now they are dealing with injuries on defense. I have Pittsburgh losing their third straight game -- this time on the road in Indianapolis." - Tommy Jaggi (Colts 23-17)

"Pittsburgh has lost two games in a row to very bad football teams. The team is in disarray and it's hard to imagine them winning another game this year after the last two. The offense comes out flat once again and struggles to put up points as the Colts do enough with their own offense to win." - Brandon Kring (Colts 20-13)

"After two awful losses at home, the Steelers look to bounce back on the road against the Indianapolis Colts. In what will prove to be a typical 'slog' for the Steelers offense, the defense will swoop in to save that day, yet again. A late Colts drive will end with an INT that will set up a game-winning FG from Chris Boswell." - Eric C Hassel (Steelers 20-18)

"With both teams' seasons on the line this Saturday, I expect a playoff like environment. With the Steelers hitting rock bottom and having no sense of direction at the moment I think they lose a close one." - Blaze (Colts 24-20)

"A third straight loss would spell disaster for Mike Tomlin’s Steelers. Their backs are against the wall and on the brink of total collapse. However, the Steelers have dominated the Colts over their last several matchups and that is why I have hope. Indianapolis is surrendering just over 130 rushing ypg to opponents this season. Jaylen Warren and Najee Harris should fare well Saturday. Steelers stay in the playoff race." - Dawson King (Steelers 24-17)
