Steelers Escape with Nail-Biter Victory in Indy


The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Indianapolis Colts matched up on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. It was a sloppy game early on that turned into an exciting finish. The Steelers were led by 80 rushing yards from running back Le’Veon Bell and 97 receiving yards from rookie wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster; each of them scoring one touchdown.

The Colts offense recorded two touchdowns, each through the air coming from quarterback Jacoby Brissett. Colt receivers Donte Moncrief and Chester Rogers each had one of those two receiving touchdowns. Defensively each team had an interception, defensive back Pierre Desir for the Colts, and inside linebacker Ryan Shazier for the Steelers. The Colts at one time built up a 14-point lead over the Steelers, only to blow it away in the final seconds of the game.

The hero for Pittsburgh in the end was kicker Chris Boswell, who kicked the field goal to give the Steelers a 20-17 lead, and win, as time expired.
