Steelers Vs. Colts Game Score: Ike Taylor Interception Return Puts Pittsburgh Up 14-0

The Pittsburgh Steelers overcame an early turnover to take a 14-0 lead over Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts.

Pittsburgh's opening drive ended abruptly when Antoine Bethea stepped in front of Ben Roethlisberger's first pass for an interception. The Steelers held Luck to a three and out on their opening possession and the Steelers took the ball back deep in their own territory. After a couple of Roethlisberger passes netted a first down, he hooked up with wideout Antonio Brown for a 57 yard touchdown.

Later in the quarter, Pittsburgh defensive back Ike Taylor jumped an intended pass to Reggie Wayne and returned it 49 yards for the Steelers' second touchdown.

Roethlisberger completed 5 of 7 passes for 81 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Jonathan Dwyer finished the quarter with four carries for 14 yards while Brown had two catches for 75 yards.

Andrew Luck had a much tougher first quarter than last week against the Rams, going 6 of 12 for 76 yards and an interception. Reggie Wayne has two catches for 23 yards for the Colts.
