Pittsburgh Steelers Friday Night 5 questions and Open Thread

The Steelers backs are up against the wall and have a huge AFC showdown with the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday night. Time to begin the meeting of the minds with our 5 Questions and Open Thread.

Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

The sting of the Pittsburgh Steelers Week 12 loss to the Seattle Seahawks still stings. Another game the Steelers were in position to win, and let it slip away in the most frustrating ways. Nonetheless, it is time to get over that hurdle and get ready for a must-win game against the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday night at Heinz Field in prime time.

What better way to do so than with the BTSC Friday night 5 questions and open thread. If you are new to the party, here are the ground rules: State your beverage for the evening, answer the questions to the best of your ability in the comment section below, avoid those nasty kidney and rabbit punches and please refrain from conversation talking about the Steelers "unleashing hell" in the month of December.

Let's get this party started right...

1. Most would consider the game Sunday a must-win game. How many points will the Steelers have to score to claim their 7th win of the 2015 season?

2. On the Colts offensive roster, who scares you the most? Frank Gore, Matt Hasselbeck, T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief or Andre Johnson?

3. The Steelers currently have 30 sacks on the season (tied for 7th), how many sacks do you see this defense finishing the season with?

4. The Steelers have 5 games left (vs. IND, @ CIN, vs. DEN, @ BAL, @ CLE). How many wins will it take for the team to not have to scoreboard watch in Weeks 16 and 17 and secure a playoff spot?

5. The Steelers defense got shredded against the Seahawks. On a scale from 1-10 (10 being SUPER confident), how confident are you the team can play the brand of defense necessary to win, as long as Ben Roethlisberger and company are doing their thing?

That's all for this week folks! Enjoy your weekend and be sure to check back to BTSC throughout the process as we will be giving you some great Film Room articles and more leading up to kickoff! Here we go Steelers!
