THE TEAM NEWS

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

  • Indianapolis needed a late FG from long-range to defeat a stubborn Denver side as the Colts improved to 5-2 for the year and it is victories like that which are likely to be crucial come the business end of the season.
  • Colts DT Denico Autry suffered a knock during last week's win but it is not expected to result in him missing any game time although he will have to prove his fitness after sitting out Wednesday’s first practice of the week.
  • He was joined on the sidelines by CB Kenny Moore, CB Pierre Desir, DE Jabaal Sheard and S Khari Willis with the Colts desperate to get at least some of them on the field on Sunday or be severely weakened on defense.

PITTSBURGH STEELERS

  • Pittsburgh scored 27 unanswered points as they overcame a slow start against Miami to make it back-to-back victories and move to 3-4 but this will be a more difficult test of their play-off credentials as they host Indianapolis.
  • Steelers RB James Conner went down late on against the Dolphins with a shoulder injury and is in some doubt to suit up for this game although head coach Mike Tomlin has suggested he could play but not take his usual snap count.
  • Back-up RB Jaylen Samuels was a full participant at Wednesday’s practice and his availability is going to be important if Conner is to miss any game time whilst OL Maurkice Pouncey and OL Ramon Foster will have to prove their fitness to feature on Sunday.

THE PREDICTION

Pittsburgh bounced back from a slow start to defeat Miami and will have their sights on making it three wins in a row as they host Indianapolis. The Colts are on a three-game winning run after edging Denver last week and should continue their impressive form of late with a fourth successive victory. The Steelers could be hindered by the availability of first-choice RB James Conner but even if he is fit, it is unlikely to be enough to prevent the Colts from claiming the win.
