Steelers Get a Much Needed Win

The Pittsburgh Steelers completed a second half comeback and defeated the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, 28-24, to snap a three-game losing streak.

With the victory, the Steelers also clinched the AFC North division title with one game remaining in the regular season, their first division title since 2017.

Pittsburgh erased a 21-7 halftime deficit, outscoring the Colts 21-3 in the second half.

QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 34 of his 49 passes, for 342 yards, and three touchdowns, all of which came in the second half.

The Steelers’ defense also stepped up in the second half and finished the game with five total sacks, including two by TJ Watt.

Watt also had a second quarter forced fumble which led to a James Conner rushing touchdown.

Defensive back Mike Hilton had a fumble recovery and a late game interception in the victory.

Pittsburgh, who is now 12-3 on the season, remains the number three seed in the AFC playoff picture.

The Steelers will finish the regular season on the road against Cleveland next week.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. on CBS.
