Colts vs Steelers : Indianapolis has been a homebody their last two games, but they are heading out on Sunday. They will square off against Pittsburgh at 1 p.m. ET at Heinz Field. Indianapolis is currently enjoying a three-game winning streak and is looking to extend their dominance.
When: 03 Sunday 2019
TV: NFL Network
The Colts came out on top in a nail-biter against Denver last week, sneaking past 15-13.
Meanwhile, Pittsburgh was able to grind out a solid victory over Miami last Monday, winning 27-14. Among those leading the charge for Pittsburgh was RB James Conner, who rushed for 145 yards and one TD on 23 carries. That nimble footwork stands out as the first time Conner has hit the 100-yard rushing mark this season.
Pittsburgh’s defense was a presence as well, and it made life painful for the QB and got past Miami’s offensive line for a total of four sacks for a loss of 15 yards. Leading the way was OLB T.J. Watt and his two sacks.
This next contest is expected to be close, with Indianapolis going off at just a 1-point favorite. If their 4-2-1 record against the spread is anything to go by, the prospects look good for bets placed on them.
Their wins bumped Indianapolis to 5-2 and Pittsburgh to 3-4. We’ll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when the Colts and the Steelers clash.

For now it is only a short stack, but the Steelers were able to get their second straight win on Monday night against Miami Dolphins. In typical Steelers fashion, they started slow out of the gate coming off of the bye but still ended up with the result many of us had hoped for in a 13-point victory. Yes, the three wins the Steelers have on the season are against teams that have a combined three wins between them. But the Steelers four losses are also to teams which have a combined four losses.
This week, the Steelers may get a better feel for where they stand against the rest of the NFL as they take on the 5–2 Indianapolis Colts who are currently leading the AFC South division. The Colts are as much of a mystery right now as the Steelers but for the opposite reasons. The Colts have notched some wins over quality teams, but also have losses to teams with losing records. Will the Colts drop another game to a team with a losing record? Will the Steelers suffer another loss to a team which has only lost two games on the season? Either way, something is going to have to give.
This Sunday will answer these questions as the Steelers look to give the home fans another victory. Make sure you get all the information you need below so you can enjoy the Week 9 showdown:

We had an OK week. I can live with 2-1. The Colts came up a few points short. The record is 15-11-1 on the season and I finally stayed away from the Thursday night game, which has been my downfall on the Best Bets this year. Here is what I like in Week 9:
Browns (-3.5) at Broncos
Cleveland can play defense. The Browns pushed around the vaunted Pats defense a week ago. Cleveland can run the hell out of the ball and at some point the Browns will protect the football a smidge better. This is their season. A loss here and it’s over. You have to feast on Brandon Allen in his first NFL start. Denver had no offense with Joe Flacco at the helm and it’s only going to get worse. Baker Mayfield seems to be at his best when he is angry. The Browns have way more talent, and in this battle, neither coach has distinguished himself as a rookie head coach. I expect the Browns to win by a touchdown or more.
