Steelers Vs. Colts Game Score: Indianapolis Storms Back To Take 17-14 Halftime Lead

After the Pittsburgh Steelers controlled the first quarter, the Colts came back in the second with 17 unanswered points to take a 17-14 lead into halftime.

The Colts began the second quarter by finishing off a 10-play, 80-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown run by Donald Brown that cut the Steelers' lead to 14-7.

Rookie quarterback Andrew Luck had the Colts driving again before their next drive ended with another interception, his second of the game. Luck's pass was juggled by receiver T.Y. Hilton, and dropped right into the hands of Steelers defensive back Cortez Allen.

Ben Roethlisberger came out for one series in the second quarter before giving way to Charlie Batch, whose first drive ended with a punt. Luck then helped engineer another 80-yard drive, finishing it off with a one-yard touchdown run to tie the game at 14. After forcing another Steelers punt, Luck led the Colts on a five-play, 31-yard drive that resulted in a 53-yard Adam Vinatieri field goal at the quarter horn.

Roethlisberger finished 5-of-9 for 81 yards with a touchdown and an interception during his stint in the game. Running back Jonathan Dwyer had a nice half with seven carries for 39 yards. Antonio Brown has two catches for 75 yards, including a 57-yard touchdown reception.

Luck finished the half 16-of-25 for 175 yards and two interceptions. Donald Brown leads the Indy charge with six carries for 30 yards, while receiver Reggie Wayne caught six passes for 74 yards.
