Colts @ Steelers Sunday Night Football Game Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts Nation!  :)   A battle of 6-5 teams in prime time, as our Indianapolis Colts are in the international spotlight again this season, as they are in The Steel City to play the Pittsburgh Steelers for NBC's Sunday Night Football.  Colts will certainly avoid further embarassment from their last appearance on SNF when they lost to the New England Patriots by the score of 27-20 at LOS, back on October 18.

Our Colts are still tied in first place with the Houston Texans, but own the tiebreaker in this stage of the 2015 regular season, as Indianapolis defeated Houston 27-20 earlier on Thursday Night Football to win the tiebreaker.  Colts fans may root for the Buffalo Bills as they host the Texans earlier this Sunday afternoon, for a possible outright first place if Indianapolis defeats Pittsburgh tonight.

Colts are seeking both their first win, and first road win at Heinz Field in more than 7 years.  Following a  Steelers   17-14 lead  at halftime, Adam Vinetieri kicked a 36-yard field goal to tie the game at 17-17 in the third quarter.  After Jeff Reed kicked a 26-yard FG with 7:56 remaining in the fourth quarter, Peyton Manning threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Dominic Rhodes, with 3:14 remaining in the fourth quarter followed by Vinetieri's  PAT, to win 24-20 at Heinz Field back in November 9, 2008.

Steelers have since won the next two meetings, played home and home at Indianapolis and  Pittsburgh, the Steelers outscoring the Colts 74-54.  Steelers defeated the Colts 51-34 in their last visit and game played at Heinz Field, on Thursday Night Football back on October 26, 2014.

Pittsburgh though, leads the all-time series  with 21 wins and 6 losses.  Those 21 wins includes the 5-0 record in postseason games, and the Steelers have outscored the Colts 679 to 455 points in the previous 27 games.

Al Michaels and former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Cris Collinsworth are announcing the live TV game commentary, along with field/sideline reporter and interviewer Michele Tafoya for NBC's Sunday Night Football, televised internationally, including WTHR NBC Channel 13 in Indianapolis, live on HD.

Tonight's Colts-Steelers game is also being simulcasted with NBC's live network feed  on the internet through your computer, laptop, and mobile devices, beginning with the Football Night In America Pregame Show, beginning at 7:30PM Eastern Standard Time.

Bob Lamey. our 'Voice Of The Colts,' and former Colts QB Jim Sorgi, are announcing the live radio game play-by play and analysis, simulcasted on flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WLHK The Hank Country 98.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Networ.

Cloudy skies at 38 degrees, feels like 35 degrees, is the local game forecast inside Heinz Field for the 8:25PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 0% precipitation, 75% humidity, and very mild south/southwestern winds at 4 miles per hour.

Colts are wearing their white helmets, jerseys, and pants, with blue trim, while the host Steelers are wearing their black helmets and jerseys with gold trim, and gold pants.

NO injuries, try to win your sixth straight game for the Blue Horseshoe, play as One Pride, and GO COLTS!!!!!  :coltslogo::coltshelmet::coltslogo:

I can at least watch with a little peace knowing that no matter the outcome, we'll still be first in the Division. But the players better not have my mindset! Get the win! Huge chance here to separate from the Texans and maybe more importantly, have the Steelers playoff hopes take a hit (Don't know about you, but I do NOT want to see them in the playoffs)

We must pressure Big Ben

 

Big time, they did a great job at pressuring Winston last week.  Hopefully they continue the trend.

Hoping for a Colts win!!

its all about pressure on Ben tonight. He will turn the ball over if we push him, otherwise we will struggle keeping up with those receivers.

Pittsburgh need the win bad, KC is ahead of them for the wildcard.  So Steelers will be pumped.

 

We got it on a fumble!

    • Agree. I think people underestimate the ability of coaches to tailor offenses towards their best players. This is especially true for the coaches that are actually good, which I think Arians is(even though I too have some thoughts on his offense and playcalling).    You might actually argue Ben and Luck especially were used the way they were by Arians precisely because they they can actually do it and can actually mitigate some of the drawbacks of playing that type of offense. I think Arians is plenty smart enough to adjust his offense to what Brady can and cannot do. I still think Brady can be one of the better passers in the intermediate range and even take some shots downfield when well protected and he will have some of the best supporting casts and weapons he's had recently. I don't think Arians will ask Brady to do what he was asking Luck to do. 
    • Or their putting out players to excel a play. For instance, a hard PA that looks like a run. Teams will buy it's a run more if Pascal is on the field then Campbell. All I'm saying is, don't sleep on Pascal just because we took two WRs early. We can take advantage of each of their best traits.
    • Not sure TB12 would make it to Bye Week if Arians was the playcaller
    • I have some thoughts on Arians' offense and playcalling, but Leftwich is the playcaller now. And I think they'll tailor things to fit Brady's strengths and maximize the weapons they have. I don't think Brady is as dangerous a passer as he once was, but it was only a couple years ago that he threw for 500 yards in the Super Bowl.    Arians' calling plays for Ben and Luck (and even Jameis) -- who thrived in a downfield passing attack, who liked to hold on to the ball and shrug off tacklers -- probably doesn't have a whole lot of significance for the 2020 Bucs with Brady. Arians might be stubborn, but he's not stupid.
    • I’d love to have Clowney.... and I’m a big believer in the high character players the Colts have targeted recently. But with the uncertainty over what the salary cap will look like next year, and the multiple free agents the Colts need to sign, it makes sense to be cautious. If they could get him on a one year affordable deal, heck yeah. But I suspect Clowney will hold out for a better deal than that....which is why Clowney and the Colts are not the best fit. Gonna have to roll with J. Houston and the kids.
