The Colts dominated for the first half of the game but failed to secure the 14-point lead they owned at one point in the second half. That score came after linebacker Ryan Shazier's interception of a Jacoby Brissett pass at the Colts' 10-yard line. "We're fortunate to win this game giving up those two long touchdown passes".
Brissett, on the other hand, was 9 of 13 for 130 yards and one touchdown before halftime. Frank Gore ran 17 times for 54 yards.
Pittsburgh finally got on the board with 30 seconds remaining in the half on Boswell's 41-yard field goal.
He had an extra point blocked that was almost returned for two points by Colts safety Matthias Farley.
Steelers: Starting safety Mike Mitchell left on a cart with an injured right ankle and did not return. The team said he had passed the concussion protocol in the third quarter. The situation is made worse by the fact the Steelers now have a stretch of four primetime games in a row, the first coming against the Tennessee Titans in a short week.
