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)

    • Classic Ballard pick - great measurables, raw, little to no college production. He hasn’t had a lot of luck with that approach so far when it comes to Dline, so I’m extremely skeptical.    He’s coming off a pretty severe injury and if Fisher is anything to go by I don’t think we should expect anything from him this year.    I hope he surprises because we really need that elite sack/pressure from our Dline. 
    • @Lawrence Owen just saw you bring this topic up on TV?
    • Glow is at the end of his contract.  He's a free agent next year.  He's pushing 30.  And Ballard has to decide if he's gonna pay his ENTIRE offensive line the extra money or not.  If Reed plays better than Glow, at a lower cost, then that may be the way they go.
    • I think rotate is coaching code word for if Glow doesn't play better Reed will get his job.   One huge thing that everyone talks about when it comes to Oline thats not a stat is synergy between the 5. The more all 5 start together, the more synergy they have together, the better the line plays.   I think its every teams goal to have as much consistency at Oline as possible. So to me rotating makes no sense.
    • I feel bad for him and had very high hopes for Blackmon, but think he is an average to below average safety when healthy Getting him back next year, isnt a solution that will bring much difference to one the worst pass defenses in football   We arent getting much PR, but at least a percentage of the extremely poor pass defense is the safety play   We need a playmaking safety, to go with the need of an additional pass rusher (even if its a 3rd down guy that can rotate in)   I hope we invest in the off season (again) for these two critical spots, until we find the right guys     The good news.... sarcasm alert.....  we cant be the 38th ranked pass defense
