There were turnovers early by the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the Indianapolis Colts failed to capitalize on their early chances and the Steelers ran away with the game. The Steelers picked up the 45-10 win, thanks in large part to a stellar offense. The Steelers improved to 7-5, while the Colts dropped to 6-6.
The Steelers fumbled on their first two drives, but the Colts were able to come away with just three points. The Steelers quickly caught fire after that and cruised to an easy win.
Ben Roethlisberger had a strong day through the air, completing 24 of 39 passes for 364 yards and four TDs. Antonio Brown was his top target, catching eight passes for 118 yards and two TDs. He also added a punt return score. Martavis Bryant was a big-play threat, reeling in four balls for 114 yards and a TD.
The Steelers running game was also sharp. DeAngelo Williams picked up 134 yards on 26 carries, although he didn't find the end zone and fumbled once.
The Colts had little success on offense. Matt Hasselbeck completed just 16 of 26 passes for 169 yards, a TD and two picks. With the game out of reach late, he and the rest of the key starters were pulled. The Steelers sacked Colts' QBs five times.
Frank Gore had 13 carries for 45 yards, but also added three catches for 49 yards and a TD in the passing game. With the Colts down big, they were forced to abandon the run.
