At the half, quarterback Philip Rivers completed 9 of 12 passes for 153 yards and one touchdown, and rookie running back Jonathan Taylor had 13 carries for 49 yards and two scores for the Colts who held a 21-7 lead.
Following Taylor’s first touchdown with 9:48 to go in the first quarter, Colts players pulled off the “Soul Train” line, which featured individual dances from wide receiver Zach Pascal, backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett, and tight end Mo Alie-Cox.
Taylor added his second touchdown for the game with 6:35 to go in the second quarter. Two minutes later, Pascal was on the receiving end of a 42-yard touchdown from Rivers to put the Colts up two scores heading into the half.
The Colts are in the heat of a playoff race, and a win over the Steelers would all-but solidify their chances at making the postseason. Indianapolis, along with the Tennessee Titans, Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, and Miami Dolphins, are fighting for three AFC Wildcard spots.
