Steelers blow out the Colts in Prime Time
The Pittsburgh Steelers stayed undefeated on the season, 6-0, with a shellacking of the Indianapolis Colts, 37-7, Sunday Night at Three Rivers Stadium.
The Steelers offense scored on 10 of their 12 offensive possessions in the game and racked up 437 total offensive yards. They nearly had a shutout, but the Colts scored with 30 seconds remaining to erase the shutout.
Jerome Bettis overpowered the Colts with 158 yards rushing and 2 TDs on 29 carries. Kordell Stewart threw a TD pass and then left the game with a concussion in the second quarter. Mike Tomczak replaced him and threw for 149 yards and a TD.
The Steeler defense dominated the Colts and held them to 180 yards total offense until the final drive that included a 58-yard pass from Jim Harbaugh to Marshall Faulk. The Steelers sacked Harbaugh four times.
The Steelers will hope to stay undefeated as they travel to the red-hot Bengals, while the Colts, 1-5, face the Bills at home on Monday Night Football.
Steelers stay undefeated with divisional win
Kordell “Slash” Stewart continues to be one of the most dynamic players in the NFL. He electrified Baltimore Memorial Stadium as the Steelers defeated the Ravens 38-24 on Sunday afternoon.
The Steelers didn’t waste any time as Will Blackwell returned the opening kickoff 100 yards to give the Steelers a 7-0 lead. Then a few minutes later, Stewart scrambled 36 yards for another score to give the Steelers a 14-0 lead with only 4:30 minutes off the 1st quarter clock.
Late in the game, Darren Perry picked off Vinny Testaverde and dove into the end zone to shut the door on the Ravens.
All totaled, Stewart threw for 160 yards and 2 TDs and ran for 43 yards and scored another TD. RB Jerome Bettis plowed through the Ravens defense for 108 yards. The Steelers will take their undefeated 5-0 record home and will face the Colts on Sunday Night Football next week.
Vinny Testaverde threw 50 times in the game for 284 yards and a TD. The Ravens will take their 3-3 record into next week’s bye.
