When: 8:30 p.m. EST
Where: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Spread: Steelers by 9
What's At Stake:
Both teams are in the middle of the playoff hunt, and need to keeping winning games. The Colts are in the AFC South, which makes things easier, but the Texans are lurking in that division. The Steelers won't win the AFC North with the way the Bengals are playing, but they can take a wild card spot. The Steelers have a tough schedule and a win over the Colts will give them some room for error down the stretch.

Key To The Game:
The turnover battle is going to be critical in this one. The Steelers are just above league average, with a slightly positive turnover differential. The Colts are near the bottom, with a -5 differential. The Colts will need to hold onto the ball, and they've done a better job of that in recent weeks. The Colts won't win if they don't win the turnover battle, because the Steelers are the better team overall.
Prediction: Steelers Win 31-24
The Steelers are the superior team, and they pick up the win at home. The Colts cover the spread, but Ben Roethlisberger takes advantage of a porous Colts' secondary. Big Ben has a big game and the Steelers pick up a key win.Back to the Pittsburgh Steelers Newsfeed
