Steelers Vs. Colts: Pittsburgh Seeks First Road Win Of Year In Indianapolis Sunday Night

The Steelers should be able to capture their first road win of the year this Sunday night when they travel to Indianapolis to take on an 0-2 team that's reeling from the absence of Peyton Manning.

Fans of the six-time Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers were understandably hesitant to make too much of the team's 24-0 shutout of the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2. The Seahawks just aren't good enough to give the Steelers a tough test yet, at least not on the road. Nevertheless, it was a solid win for Mike Tomlin's squad last Sunday.

Unfortunately - or fortunately, depending on your outlook - the Steelers again won't face too tough a test in Week 3 when they travel to Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday Night Football. The Colts are without Peyton Manning and have looked decidedly mediocre on both sides of the ball in their first two games, both losses. If there is one area where the Steelers will be tested it will be along the offensive line. The Colts still pack a pretty tough punch with their pass rush, and the crowd noise in their dome stadium can be difficult to contend with for offensive linemen that can't hear the snap count at the line of scrimmage.

We'll get into a full preview and coverage of the Week 3 matchup throughout the week here at SB Nation Pittsburgh. Stop on by Behind the Steel Curtain and Stampede Blue for even more Steelers and Colts coverage as well.
