Updated score: Steelers 10, Colts 3

The last time the Pittsburgh Steelers were in Indianapolis they played in one of the most memorable games in franchise history.

The 21-18 victory over the Colts in the AFC Divisional round was a wild ride which has forever etched in our memories Jerome Bettis fumbling at the 2-yard line which was picked up by Indianapolis' Nick Harper.

Harper had nothing but open field in front of him and he appeared to be on his way for the go-ahead touchdown.

There was hope for the Steelers, though, as Ben Roethlisberger was the last man back.

Harper shifted back-and-forth in an effort to elude Pittsburgh's quarterback and it nearly worked. Roethlisberger, in a last ditch effort while falling reached out and made a shoe-string tackle on Harper.

Mike Vanderjagt badly missed his attempt at the game-tying field goal and the rest was history. Pittsburgh went on to become the first sixth seed to win the Super Bowl, their franchise's fifth championship.

Five years later the Steelers are back in Indianapolis for a nationally televised game Sunday night, their first time back since their playoff victory.

Unlike the previous meeting, this time the Steelers will not have to defend against Peyton Manning who is still out with an injury.

Pittsburgh is still trying to get into a rhythm on both offense and defense following their opening week debacle against the Baltimore Ravens.

They were much improved in their home opener against the Seattle Seahawks and will look to continue to improve tonight in a winnable matchup.
