Steelers go in search of fourth in a row
The Pittsburgh Steelers hope to expand their lead over the idle Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North Division on Sunday when they play the Colts at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
The Steelers lead the Ravens by three games in the loss column and are coming off their bye week after previously getting the better of the Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals and the Detroit Lions.
Ben Roethlisberger completed 17-of-31 for 317 yards and one touchdown against the Lions at Ford Field in Detroit and the Pittsburgh quarterback is currently ninth in the NFL in yards per game at 258.
Notably Andy Dalton of the Bengals, Joe Flacco of the Ravens and DeShone Kizer of the Cleveland Browns are 23rd, 32nd and 33rd and dead last in that category showing the gulf in class between the AFC North Division rivals.
The Steelers have eight games remaining in the campaign as they battle the New England Patriots for the top seed in the AFC.
The two teams meet at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh in Week 15 of the season in what shapes up as a potential tiebreaker between the sides.
In addition to the games against the Colts and the Patriots the Steelers play their Division rivals each once more along with home games against the Tennessee Titans and Green Bay Packers and a visit to Houston to take on the Texans.
It's tough for the rest of the league, but Pittsburgh will be happy to take advantage, if they can, of both the Packers and Texans losing their starting quarterback for the season.
The Steelers are 1213.00 to top the AFC Conference, with the Patriots 1.20.
