Indianapolis’ defense, however, gave the Steelers fits all night.
Instead of a blowout, the Steelers found themselves in a tough battle behind three Ben Roethlisberger turnovers.
Troy Polamalu came up big picking up a forced fumble caused by James Harrison and returning it for a score. Indianapolis would later answer to tie the game at 20.
But in typical Roethlisberger form, he led the Steelers down the field to set up Shaun Suisham for a 38-yard field-goal attempt for the win.
Suisham made it and the Steelers narrowly escaped.
Despite holding the ball for nearly eight minutes more than the Colts and outgaining them by over 160 yards, Pittsburgh had a nail-biter.
They will still take the win and move on to next week, but there are areas to be worried about, especially along the offensive line which suffered three injuries this evening.
