Indianapolis Colts vs Pittsburgh Steelers 11/03/2019
The Colts escaped from the clutches of the Denver Broncos by posting a 15-13 win in their previous matchup. QB Jacoby Brissett was all business with 15/25 and 202 air yards. He didn’t get a passing TD, but his aggressive presence boosted the players’ morale. Marlon Mack rushed like a Mack truck, clocking in 19 carries for a total of 76 yards. His longest run was 16 yards, and he capped off a good night’s performance with a rushing touchdown.
Jack Doyla caught the ball 4 times, gaining 61 yards for the team. The Colts made good use of the rush tactic. They utilized it 31 times out of 60 plays. They were dominant in yardage gained, with 318 as opposed to their opponents’ 279. The Colts conceded 20 out of 32 throw attempts. Their opponent also succeeded in 28 rush attempts, but this fell short of dimming the Colts’ fighting spirit.
The Indianapolis Colts excel in defense and rushing. This puts them in a perfect position to crush any opponent as long as their playmakers are able to score. Their next opponent should just be a walk in the park.

The Steelers had achieved their goal of more wins versus losses in their win-loss scorecard. This was made possible by their 27-14 ownage of the bottom-tier Miami Dolphins. QB Mason Rudolph ran circles around the opponents, going 20/36 with 251 air yards. He nonchalantly tossed in 2 touchdowns as well. Not to be outdone, James Conner did 23 carries for 145 yards. His longest run of 25 yards helped him gain a rushing touchdown.
Juju Smith-Schuster took care of the receiving department, catching the ball 5 times and gaining 103 yards in the process. The Steelers ran with the ball for 29 out of 67 plays. Their yardage gained was 394 yards as opposed to their opponents’ 230 yards. They clamped down on defense, forcing 4 turnovers and limiting the opposition to only 62% throw completion rate.
The Steelers did well in their rushing for their previous matchup. However, they don’t have a good rushing record in their games overall. They need to put more confidence into rushing if they aim to catch up in the rankings and defeat greater opponents.
