Steelers Vs. Colts Game Score: Pittsburgh Trails Indianapolis 24-20 Entering 4th

The Steelers' defense got back on track to start the second half, holding backup quarterback Drew Stanton and the Colts to a three-and-out on the first possession of the third quarter. Lineback Mortty Ivy broke through and blocked the punt on fourth down, setting Pittsburgh up with great field position deep in Indianapolis territory. A penalty pushed the Steelers back, though, and they had to settle for a 25-yard field goal from Danny Hrapmann to tie the game, 17-17.

Pittsburgh couldn't sustain their momentum, as Stanton directed a nine-play, 74-yard drive that culminated in a touchdown pass to Griff Whalen that gave the Colts a 24-17 lead. Steelers backup Charlie Batch followed with his best series of the night, leading a 64-yard drive that ended in a Hrapmann 39-yard field goal.

Batch has completed 7-of-10 passes for 84 yards since replacing Ben Roethlisberger in the second quarter. Baron Batch has eight carries for 19 yards rushing and David Gilreath has two catches for 48 yards.
