The Pittsburgh Steelers will host the Indianapolis Colts in Heinz Field in about an hour. The Steelers are aiming to lose three games in a row. The game is pretty important because the Steelers can win to blockade the AFC North area. It also means that some starters are likely to rest in the 17th week before the playoffs, as the Steelers have little hope for the first round-by anymore.
Several Steelers players will recover from injury and illness this week. Vince Williams is back in the field from the Reserve / COVID list. Kevin Dotson and James Connor may also come back after being unable to participate in recent contests due to injuries. The Steelers may try to establish a running game after some success in the 15th week. It would be interesting to see if he was a starter or Benny Snell nodded at last week’s performance as James Corner became healthy again.
On the Colts side, Bradden Smith has been added to the Reserve / COVID list. This means that Chaz Green is likely to play against TJ Watt.Chaz Green was once allowed 6 bags This is a lucrative match for the Steelers, as it is generally the responsibility of pass protection against Adrian Clayborn in 2017.

Cameron Hayward and Quentunson will also have another rift with each other as Hayward decisively won the final match a year ago.
“I’ve never seen him in the same way since I saw Cameron Hayward attacking him,” said one NFL defensive assistant coach at Quentunson.

Philip Rivers is reported to have fairly tough turf toes, so his pockets are probably lacking in mobility, leading to more potential bags.
