Here’s how to live stream Sunday’s Colts vs Steelers game.
Just a few weeks ago, this Week 16 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers looked like a death sentence for the Indianapolis Colts, who many thought would absolutely need this win in order to save their playoff hopes.
Now, the Steelers are losers of three straight and are hands down playing their worst football. They lost pass rusher Bud Dupree for the season, their rushing attack is among the worst in the NFL, and Ben Roethlisberger can’t throw the ball.
Some might say this could be a tough spot for the Colts because the Steelers are playing for the AFC North title at the moment, but Indy just so happens to be playing their best football in 2020. It feels like the perfect time for these worlds to collide.

Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET at Heinz Field, which will feature limited attendance. You can find steams of the game via the NFL Streams subreddit community. You can also watch it via a free trial of FUBO TV.
While the Colts’ offense has been humming behind Philip Rivers’ near-flawless performances, Indy will be down both starting offensive tackles today. Anthony Castonzo and Braden Smith have both been ruled out. That doesn’t bode well against a front seven that leads the NFL with 47 sacks — but, to be fair, it’s a different front seven than it was earlier in the campaign.
Then again, Indy has been spreading the ball around with Rivers getting it out quickly, which has helped the offensive line keep opposing pass rushers at bay. But if the Colts can’t get the running game going behind Jonathan Taylor, it’s going to be a problem. The good news is that Quenton Nelson played some left tackle against the Raiders and looked really good, so be prepared for some of that against Pittsburgh.
Plus, Indy has the motivation to get revenge after Minkah Fitzpatrick’s epic pick-six last year and the constant reminders of Roethlisberger’s game-saving tackle in the 2005 playoffs.
As for Pittsburgh, if they lose today and the Browns beat the Jets, their Week 17 matchup will be for the AFC North title, so Cleveland will fully be behind the Colts. While it’s never great to be playing against Mike Tomlin with his back against the wall, Indy’s defense matches up very well against an offense that isn’t very dynamic.
It feels like it’ll be up to the offense to capitalize against Pittsburgh’s stingy D if the Colts want to escape with a win and hopefully take control of the AFC South if the Titans fall to the Packers on Sunday night.
