Brief Analysis:

Anthony Defeo

PIT 28-13

Steelers take advantage of compromised Colts offense and win going away.

Brett Foreman

PIT 31-13

Steelers ride that wave from week 11. The offense clicks on all cylinders and the defense doesn't give the game away.

Brian Nuckols

Ind 28-17

Indianapolis inexplicably transmutes it's early season struggles into pristine, mistake free football.

Dan Sager

PIT 30-14

Without luck, Indy is basically Cleveland.

Eric O’Connell

IND 24-21

The Steelers drop one of their trademarked "bad loss after a big win" games to ruin your Thanksgiving.

Fear94

PIT 28-10

Steelers on paper should dominate this game, they’ll show flashes of dominance but also scare us a bit before pulling away. Winning on the road regardless of who it is on a short week is tough.

58Steel

PIT 27-16

An indoor track aids the offense, while a Luckless Indy has the defense smiling for a second straight week.

Flip Fisher

PIT 35-10

Miss John Madden and his 11 turkey legs to give out to the Steelers offense.

Jeff Hartman

PIT 31-17

The Colts miss Andrew Luck, but the Steelers feast on Indy to break their poor record on both Thursday nights and Thanksgiving. Moving back above .500!

Mike Frazer

PIT 34-17

If Luck somehow plays, this is closer. But against Scott Tolzien, the D looks great.

Robert Hitchcock

PIT 35-13

The Steelers are hot and rolling once again, and the Colts struggle with a back up quarterback

Zach Parnes

PIT 24-10

Happy Thanksgiving Antonio! He goes for big numbers against a bad Colts secondary

Bryan Davis

PIT 26-13

To make matters worse, fans in Indy won't even get to see their team wear the all-blue "Color Rush". Steelers face an o-line worse than Cleveland’s and a defense worse than theirs. #backontrack
