Steelers Vs. Colts Final Score: Late Field Goal Lifts Pittsburgh To 26-24 Win

A late field goal by Danny Hrapmann gave the Pittsburgh Steelers a come-from-behind win over the Indianapolis Colts 26-24. Jerrod Johnson engineered a 15-play, 65-yard drive that took more than five minutes off the clock. Hrapmann's 23-yard field goal was deflected but had just enough to clear the crossbar with just 23 seconds remaining.

Ben Roethlisberger had his first pass of the day intercepted but came back to throw for 81 yards including a 57-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown. Charlie Batch took over and failed to put any points on the board finishing 7 of 10 for 84 yards. Johnson came on in the fourth quarter and completed 4 of 5 for 65 yards

Jonathan Dwyer led the way on the ground for the Steelers, rushing eight times for 43 yards. Jason Ford added eight carries for 42 yards and had a couple of nice runs on the final Steelers drive. David Gilreath caught four passes for 78 yards while Brown finished with two catches for 75 yards and a touchdown. Danny Hrapmann came on in relief of Shaun Suisham and connected on all four of his field goal attempts.

Andrew Luck threw for 175 yards and two interceptions but did pick up a rushing touchdown.
