Default Steelers able to limp past Colts on the road

Steelers able to limp past Colts on the road
Monday, September 26, 2011

INDIANAPOLIS The ball traced a sublime arc inside Lucas Oil Stadium, and Ben Roethlisberger put just enough air under it for Mike Wallace to catch it in stride.

After gathering in what would turn into the third-longest pass of Roethlisberger's career, Wallace was off and running with an 81-yard touchdown.

Unfortunately for the Steelers, not everyone else followed that lead.

The Steelers squandered an early 10-point lead and a late seven-point advantage, but Roethlisberger bailed them out at the end.

Roethlisberger engineered a 10-play, 60-yard drive that Shaun Suisham capped with a 38-yard field goal with 4 seconds left in the game.

A 23-20 victory Sunday in front of an announced crowd of 66,309 proved to be more drama-filled than Steelers coach Mike Tomlin would have liked or that it needed to be.

Of course, what mattered most after the Steelers overcame three first-half turnovers that gifted 13 points to the winless Colts is they are 2-1 and tied for first in the AFC North.

That is what Tomlin told his players afterward, stressing the need to appreciate the victory even though it was not accompanied by style points.

"It's absolutely awesome to come into a hostile environment to get a road win," Tomlin said.

"It's a win," Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward said. "We're not going to apologize for a win."
Look at these eyebrows. These are attack eyebrows! They could take off bottle caps!

I'll take the win but Tomlin better not let up on them . . . the stench is back a little bit stronger this week than it was while preparing last week.

Better do something to clean it up a little on offense again.

MacReady: Why don't we just . . .wait here and post for a little while longer . . . see what happens?
