The Steelers and Colts wrap up the Thanksgiving Day slate on Thursday night.
Both teams enter play at 5-5 and sit in 2nd place in their respective divisions.
The Steelers got back in the win column and back to .500 after an easy victory over the Browns.
Pittsburgh put an end to a rare 4 game losing streak as they handled Cleveland 24-9 on Sunday. Pittsburgh completely controlled the pace of play and found themselves in rhythm right from the opening kickoff.
What won the game for them was not only their stellar defense, but how good their run game was.
The Steelers rushed the ball 28 times for 146 yards. RB Le’Veon Bell finished with all 146 yards and added a touchdown to his credit.
Defensively, they’re swarming to the ball as well. The Steelers have given up just 21.5 points per game, as their rush defense allows under 100 yards per game.
Expect them to use Bell heavily once again early, to take some of the pressure off Roethlisberger, who continues to battle back from knee surgery.
The Colts fate here might be decided prior to Thursday.
QB Andrew Luck will go through concussion protocol to see whether or not he is cleared to play on Thursday. Luck’s injury just adds to the list of many Colts players who have found themselves on the list this season.
Should Luck not be able to go, QB Scott Tolzien would likely get the nod.
Regardless of who is taking the snaps, expect RB Frank Gore to get a lot of early touches here.
Gore has 50 rush yards while compiling 71 receiving yards, as he’s been a main playmaker that the Colts really want to get the ball.
The task is tall here for Gore as he goes up against one of the best rush defenses in the NFL. Still, he’ll be a valuable option out of the backfield both on the ground and through the air.
