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)

    • I don’t think we’re giving up a 3 or a 4 for pretty much anyone.   But I think we might give up a 5 or a 6 for a player.       Plus we might do Mack and a pick for a pick.    So, we might.   But in this strange season, nothing would surprise me….     
    • https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BlanRo03.htm   https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BadgMi00.htm   Under the theory that “you don’t lose your job due to injury”, when Blankenship is good to go, he should be the guy. Badgley is kicking well enough that we definitely don’t need to rush Rigo back, and if his injury lingers and Michael kicks for us for the majority of the season, I’m definitely down for a training camp kicking competition between the 2 next year, since they’re basically the same guy, (minus the specs) with similar strengths & weaknesses – the 1 area in which Badgley definitely has the edge though, is in the distance of his career long field goal, which is 59 yards.
    • Darius Leonard has 298 Solo Tackles in his first 49 games played over his initial 3+ years.   Derrick Brooks had 354 Solo Tackles in his first 64 games played over his initial 4 years.   So.......Darius has 15 games to get another 56 solo tackles to equal Brooks. He is currently averaging around 6 of those a game so he should grab about 90 by the time he plays as many as Brooks played over his first 4 seasons.    Man listen, youre just wrong. I dont know what to tell you. You have made all these statements and they are just not true. If they were, Id agree with you. But its just not.   Darius has some weaknesses. But making tackles isnt one of them. 
    • Assuming Wentz turns into a loss of a first round pick the Colts are without a #1 and a #6 but have two #7’s and most likely pick up a conditional pick for losing Brissett and Walker.  I think it’s most likely they get a draft pick for Mack and spend a draft pick on a Dback. Baltimore makes a lot of sense for Mack.  
    • At this point, Rodrigo, but I don't trust him in the clutch.  He feels more like Vanderjagt than Vinatieri.
