This should be a really good game. It could even be a great game if we get the old guard vs new guard QB battle we deserve.
Kick off is set for 8:30 PM ET on Sunday night with the winner getting a great bump in the AFC Wild Card race.
The Colts were expected to run away with the league’s worst division but instead they find themselves tied with the Texans as we head down the stretch.
That puts a lot of pressure on a team that has struggled more than expected this season. They have been overcoming adversity though, winning the last two without Andrew Luck.
Without him the Colts have turned to veteran Matt Hasselbeck who has shown he has the arm and the moxie to lead the team to wins. It probably also helps that he has access the best receiving corps he has had at any point in his career.
If the Colts are going to win on Sunday night they will need Hasselbeck to have another strong game but they will also need their defense to step up.
These teams played last year and the Colts were shredded for more than 50 points.
It is known that Luck is out but the reason there is no line here is because of the uncertain status of Ben Roethlisberger. Who received a concussion last week. (it seems he will play)
If he does (and is his normal self) than I can assume the Pittsburgh offense will be very productive against a weak Colts defense. If not that definitely evens things up a little.
The Steelers will also be pushed on defense as the Colts have a number of weapons they can deploy all across the field.
That is bad news for a pass defense currently ranked 30th in the league.
Pittsburgh is at home in what should be a raucous atmosphere at Heinz Field. The line may not be finalized until super close to game time though given Big Ben situation.

Look for this to be a fun game to watch no matter who QBs. Given what we know it is hard to argue against Pittsburgh not winning.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Pittsburgh 38 – Indianapolis 35
Even though I don’t know the total at the moment I still think that might be the safer play. No matter who is leading the offenses they will definitely have the advantage in this one.
Neither defense impresses.
