If the Steelers want to find out who they are as a team, taking on the red-hot Indianapolis Colts in Pittsburgh is a good way to do it.
The Colts, winners of five straight games, are averaging 33 points per contest over that winning streak, and are positioning themselves for a deep postseason run with their success over the first half of the season. The Steelers haven't won or lost consecutive games yet this year and are working to build more consistency in all three phases of the game.
The Steelers are 3.5 point home underdogs, and look to make their second of three consecutive nationally televised appearances. They defeated Houston on Monday Night Football in Week 7 and will host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football in Week 9. Their Week 8 game against the Colts is the national game on CBS, kicking off at 4:25 p.m. ET.
