The Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers are in very similar situations-- both are sitting at 6-5, both have hopes of a playoff berth after the regular season, and both have been dealing with significant injury issues, most notably to their quarterbacks.
But Ben Roethlisberger should be on the field this evening, despite a self-reported concussion from last week, as he returned to practice and seems like he can go at least one more game. Big Ben has been dealing with injury issues all season long, but his performance is still among the best in the AFC.
For the Colts, Matt Hasselbeck continues to drive the bus while Andrew Luck deals with torn abdominal muscles (ouch) and a lacerated kidney (OUCH OUCH).
Each team has plenty on the line, but one of them will walk away with a .500 record. Who can pull this one off? Stay tuned...
