The Pittsburgh Steelers (6-2) and Indianapolis Colts (3-6) went head-to-head at Lucas Oil Stadium in Week 10 action in the NFL, and entering the game it was the tale of two completely different teams. The Steelers, winners of three-in-a-row, entered the game not just as the top team in the AFC North, but also the AFC. The Colts, struggling in the AFC South, had beaten only two winless teams and a banged up Texans team, but all bets were off heading into this contest.
The Steelers were awarded the ball to start the game after losing the coin toss, and after just one play from scrimmage Ben Roethlisberger’s deep pass intended for Martavis Bryant was intercepted; however, the Pittsburgh defense forced a three-and-out to get the ball back to the offense without any damage done.
After a series of punts by both teams, the first quarter ended with a 0-0 tie and the Colts possessing the football.
