The Colts (5-6) had two chances to trim the deficit but Tolzien was stopped twice on third-down runs at the 1-yard line , and the Steelers forced incompletions on both fourth-down plays. If the Texans beat the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, the Colts will be two games behind Houston in the AFC South. "I'll be honest, I did trip (on the first run) and its' a one-on-one situation and when the goal line is literally right in front of you, you've got to put it in". (more...)

Without any real knowledge of Tolzien and what he can bring, the Steelers should have no issues scoring against a bad Colts defense and they cap off Turkey Day with several touchdowns. Early NFL games Vikings-Lions and Redskins-Cowboys look promising, so it's a shame that Steelers-Colts is expected to disappoint. Le'Veon Bell knows how significant playing on Thanksgiving is, and he is excited about the opportunity to play on national television. (more...)

Are the Browns catching the Steelers at the right time
- November 24, 2016

My support for this team will only grow and I look forward to watching this team grow and fight on. It would be understandable for the players to underestimate the Browns after spending the week watching them on tape, but they need to remember that over the last four weeks they have been no better in terms of wins and should not take anything for granted in Cleveland .

It's unclear whether either player will be able to suit up for Thursday's matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Both the Colts and Steelers are 5-5 on the season, giving this game some major playoff implications. Pittsburgh holds a 16-6 all-time record over the Colts. (more...)
