The Pittsburgh Steelers were able to pull off the 23-20 win over the Indianapolis Colts Sunday night, but it wasn’t without a fight that few expected.
Three turnovers, forced by a relentless pass rush, led to all of the Colts’ points in the contest.
In a game that heavily favored the Steelers coming in, the Peyton Manning-less Colts played one of the toughest defensive games in recent memory.
With a pass rush that wouldn’t go away, Dwight Freeney, and Robert Mathis terrorized Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ offensive line all night long, leading to one of the ugliest wins you could ask for.
There’s a fine lined mixture that goes into an ugly win. For all of the ugly and overcoming of mistakes, there has to be the addition of great play to make the whole thing stick together.
The Pittsburgh Steelers put their foot in this one, as they mixed up a batch of “Good, Bad, and Ugly” for week three of the NFL season.
