The second NFL game on this weekend’s Saturday football slate features a pivotal matchup in the AFC playoff race. Head coach Mike Tomlin’s Pittsburgh Steelers will travel nearly 400 miles west to face off against head coach Shane Steichen’s Indianapolis Colts.

The Colts are coming off a disappointing 34-14 loss to the Bengals at Cincinnati last Sunday. Prior to that defeat, Indianapolis had won four straight games. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh has suffered back-to-back losses against two of the league’s worst teams in the Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots.

December is half over, and crunch time is approaching for the 2023 NFL season. This game offers both teams a huge opportunity to get back on track in an extremely crowded NFL playoff picture. It’s going to be hard to separate these two 7-6 teams, so let’s take a look at our best bets in this game preview.

Colts vs. Steelers Preview

The Indianapolis Colts have outperformed many people’s expectations so far this year and are currently in good position to make the playoffs with the potential to claim their first division title since 2014. They have managed to play well despite a season-ending injury to rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson, the No. 4 overall draft pick, and Gardner Minshew has done a reasonable job taking over at QB.

Minshew has been something of a cult figure in the league, and the Colts are the third stop on his NFL journey. His receiving corps this season has been led by Michael Pittman Jr., who is currently on course to have the best season of his career with 984 yards in 13 games.

However, one 2023 negative for Indianapolis has been a challenging season for superstar running back Jonathan Taylor, who began the year on the PUP list while he and the Colts struggled to agree on a contract extension. In his absence, fourth-year RB Zack Moss was something of a breakout star until Taylor returned with a new $42 million, three-year contract.

Taylor has displayed flashes of his All-Pro brilliance since rejoining the team, but he has been injured for the last two weeks, and is currently listed as doubtful ahead of Saturday’s game. Without Taylor, Indianapolis managed just 46 yards on the ground last week in its tough loss at Cincinnati. A better showing from Zack Moss and Co. could be required to beat the Steelers on Saturday afternoon.

Pittsburgh’s run defense might have started the year poorly, but over the past few weeks the Steelers have been much more like themselves, giving up fewer than 100 rushing yards in three of the last four games. That included allowing only 25 in a 16-10 divisional win over the Bengals in Week 12.

Head coach Mike Tomlin’s Steelers are one of the league’s most confounding and fascinating teams. They were outgained, yardage-wise, in each of their first nine games, but somehow managed to win six of them. Good fortune or not, the Steelers have managed to find a way to grind out wins, which has been a hallmark of the Tomlin era, and his fingerprints are an indelibly evident on this team.

Many experts and fans still don’t know just what to make of the 2023 Pittsburgh Steelers, who are 7-6 and have beaten the top-seeded Baltimore Ravens but lost to bottom-feeders from New England and Arizona.

Even though Pittsburgh’s defense ranks 21st in the NFL when it comes to total yardage allowed, the Steelers are No. 7 in the league in terms of points allowed. Throughout this season, they have showcased an ability to bend but not break. The Steelers have also managed to force 21 turnovers in 2023, which is one of the highest amounts in the league and has contributed to final scores that often don’t reflect the amount of yardage they allow.

On offense, Pittsburgh is one of the NFL’s weakest teams -- ranking 27th in both scoring and total offensive yardage. Wide receiver George Pickens has been a rare bright spot in one of the league’s worst passing offenses. He has caught passes for a total of 767 yards this season, despite Pittsburgh’s play at the QB position, which has been inconsistent to say the least.

With backup QB Mitch Trubisky now running the show, things haven’t gotten easier for Pickens and the rest of the Steelers’ pass-catchers. The last two games have resulted in fewer than 200 passing yards, and the recent firing of former offensive coordinator Matt Canada has not been an overnight fix when it comes to the issues concerning this offense.

Steelers at Colts Prediction and Pick

This is one of the harder NFL games in the league to call this week, and the tight spread is evidence of that. It’s the biggest game of the year so far for both teams, but given Pittsburgh’s upcoming schedule (Cincinnati, followed by Seattle and Baltimore on the road), it might be slightly more important to the Black and Gold.

In a game such as this one, it’s hard to wager against the more experienced coach in Mike Tomlin, who has been in spots like this more often than his rookie opposite number, Shane Steichen. Also, since Pittsburgh won four of seven games this year as underdogs, I like the Steelers to pull out a hard-fought win on Saturday.

The Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers Moneyline (+100)

As mentioned earlier, both teams are going with backup quarterbacks in this game, and those QBs struggled to move the ball in their most recent outings -- putting up 32 points between them in Week 14. The Colts are still without running back Jonathan Taylor, so the Steelers defense will have a chance to stifle RB Zack Moss’ rushing attack without allowing a breakthrough.

The over/under here is 42.5 points, and I can absolutely see this one being a defensive slugfest. Viewers might not like the entertainment value on Saturday, but this could be one of those low-scoring late-season games because neither team is willing to take big risks.

The Pick: Under 41.5 points (-105)

Best NFL Player-Prop Bets for Steelers at Colts

The Steelers’ options on offense suffered a major setback on Wednesday, because wide receiver Diontae Johnson missed practice due to a knee injury. In last Thursday night’s loss to New England, Johnson was one of quarterback Mitch Trubisky’s two favorite receivers with seven targets. If he’s out of this one, it could be a big loss for Pittsburgh.

Enter Pat Freiermuth, the team’s third-year tight end out of Penn State. Freiermuth has had a tough couple of weeks, but he’s not alone on the team in that regard. With Johnson out and two running backs who haven’t scored a TD in two weeks, expect Freiermuth to be called upon in the red zone in this one.

The Pick: Pat Freiermuth anytime TD scorer (+325)

The Steelers defense has done an impressive job forcing turnovers this year, particularly in the air. Eleven different Steelers, including T.J. Watt, Joey Porter Jr., and veteran Patrick Peterson have combined for 13 interceptions. Only three teams have managed more total picks this year, and this feels like a prime opportunity for Pittsburgh to increase its number.

Indianapolis quarterback Gardner Minshew has thrown a pick in five of his last seven games, including each of the last three at Lucas Oil Stadium. It’s not unreasonable to suggest that Saturday’s game against Pittsburgh’s well-coached defense could lead to at least one more interception for the Colts backup.

The Pick: Gardner Minshew over 0.5 interceptions thrown (-141)
