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 agree that the 1st rd pick is gone . i do wish Fisher would turn back to his pro bowl self this season especially if we get into the playoffs, but as for now i think we would have a better chance to win when Q comes back to put him at LT and Reed at LG. either way and especially if Fisher started to ball out we will not be able to keep him for next year without it hurting our D. we will not have many cb's signed for next year and we do need a shut down cb 
    • He was actually good in coverage in 2019. His passer rating allowed was low 60s. He had 5 INTs that year, which helped. Those were great stats.   He took a big step back in coverage last year and gave up a near a 110 passer rating (3 TDS allowed), and had no INTs. Not good.   This year, he's allowing close to a 115 passer rating (already has allowed 3TDs tying last year), but does have 2 INTs. The 115ish passer rating allowed is just plain bad. As of last week he also had near a 10% missed tackle rate, which is bad. 4 in total, which he only had 7 in all of last year. Oke already has 6 as of last week. Holy ouch LB.....    I'm sure the sunshine folks will say "don't look at all those passes and TDs allowed, or the missed tackles, and please please only look at all the forced fumbles and INTs".. lol.   The simple truth is both INTs were gifts (Tannehill hit him right in the numbers, and he barely had to jump for Mills's bad pass).   The truth is also he's the best in the league at punching out balls and forcing fumbles. And he's also not 100% this year.
    • I am not sure they are going to re-sign Fisher at this point.  They may sign someone else, make a trade, or even draft someone in the second round (baring injury the first round pick is gone).
    • They are the best. That fan base is whacko
