Colts crumble vs. Steelers, 20-17: 5 postgame takeaways

Share

It wasn't pretty but when the clock hit zero the Pittsburgh Steelers found a way to beat the Indianapolis Colts 20-17 to push their record to 7-2.

The Steelers got back into the game with a Ben Roethlisberger to JuJu Smith-Schuster seven-yard score. The first one was a 60-yard bomb to Donte Moncrief. The situation is made worse by the fact the Steelers now have a stretch of four primetime games in a row, the first coming against the Tennessee Titans in a short week. That score came after linebacker Ryan Shazier's interception of a Jacoby Brissett pass at the Colts' 10-yard line.

Pittsburgh (7-2) rallied from a 17-3 third-quarter deficit, finishing the game on a 17-0 run.

The extra point was blocked, and it appeared the Colts were going to take it back for two points. The Colts have been one of the worst teams in the National Football League this season, and it had looked like the Steelers were going back to their early-season ways.

Chris Boswell nailed a 33-yard field goal as time expired to give Pittsburgh the win.

Brissett, on the other hand, was 9 of 13 for 130 yards and one touchdown before halftime.
