The Indianapolis Colts (5-2) will play their third AFC North opponent in four weeks as they travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers (4-3) this weekend. Kickoff at Heinz Field is set for 4:25 p.m.
Indianapolis will return to Pittsburgh for the first time since claiming a 24-20 victory on Nov. 9, 2008. The Steelers lead the all-time series, 14-6, but the two teams have split the past four matchups.
The Colts are the only team in the NFL this season with a top five ranked offense (No. 1) and defense (No. 3) in yards per game. They also rank in the top five in scoring offense (No. 2) and defense (No. 4).
Last week, Indianapolis earned its fifth consecutive win of the season, which is currently the second-longest active streak in the NFL. The Colts blanked the Bengals, 27-0, earning their first shutout victory since Dec. 28, 2008 against Tennessee. They outgained Cincinnati by 371 net yards (506-135), which marked the second-highest single-game net yard differential in franchise history. Cornerback Vontae Davis posted a career-high four passes defensed in the game and is currently tied for the league lead with 12 on the year. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw scored a rushing and receiving touchdown and continues to lead all NFL running backs with six receiving touchdowns in 2014.
Pittsburgh is coming off a 30-23 home win over the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football. Wide receiver Antonio Brown led the team with nine receptions for 90 yards and threw a touchdown pass to Lance Moore. Brown leads the NFL in receiving yards (719) and ranks second in receptions (50) this season.
