Colts travel to Pittsburgh for final preseason road trip



The Indianapolis Colts will travel to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers for their final road trip of the 2017 preseason. The game time is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, Aug. 26 at Heinz Field.

The contest will mark the 22nd all-time preseason meeting between the teams, with the Colts holding an 11-10 advantage. In their last preseason matchup, Indianapolis fell to Pittsburgh, 26-24, on Aug. 19, 2012.

Last week, the Colts traveled to Dallas and were defeated by the Cowboys, 24-19.

Dallas scored on the opening possession of the game to take an early 7-0 lead. On the Cowboys’ third possession of the game, Colts outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo recorded a strip-sack and fellow outside linebacker Lavar Edwards scooped up the ball and returned it 15 yards for a touchdown to tie the game up.

The teams traded field goals in the second quarter to keep the game tied at halftime, 10-10.

Kicker Adam Vinatieri converted his second field goal of the game in the third quarter while Dallas executed two touchdown drives in the second half to pad a 24-13 advantage in the fourth quarter.

For the second consecutive week, Indianapolis quarterback Stephen Morris orchestrated a late scoring drive that resulted in an 18-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Fred Brown. The comeback was thwarted though as Dallas went on to win, 24-1
