“Yes, absolutely, we know where we stand and the situation we are in. And that we basically have to win three games, you know, and (we’re) certainly fully capable of doing that,” he told reporters following last night’s 30-23 loss to the Patriots in New England. “That’s what we intend to do, but all the focus goes to the next game.

With Andrew Luck out with a concussion, the Indianapolis Colts were given a firsthand look at how much their Pro Bowl quarterback means to them.

Ben Roethlisberger threw three touchdown passes to Antonio Brown, and Le’Veon Bell rushed for 120 yards as the Pittsburgh Steelers took first place in the AFC North with a 28-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday.
The Steelers have a half-game lead over the Baltimore Ravens, who host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. They’ve now won two straight games since a four-game losing streak that put their playoff hopes in jeopardy.
Roethlisberger and the passing attack accounted for 221 of Pittsburgh’s 369 yards, spearheading drives that opened up a two-touchdown lead in the first quarter from which the Colts did not recover. The Steelers quarterback completed 14 of his 20 passes, with their game plan making a clear decision to send passes down the field.
Brown led the team with 91 yards on his five receptions. This is Brown’s third multi-touchdown game of the season and 12th of his career. It’s the first time he has ever scored three times in a game. Gordon McGuinness of Pro Football Focus made an astute observation about the former sixth-round pick:
