Steelers Vs. Colts, Final Score: Ben Roethlisberger Leads Game-Winning Drive Culminating In Shaun Suisham Field Goal

The Indianapolis Colts were certainly the underdogs heading into the NFL's weekly Sunday Night Football game on NBC, but they didn't necessarily play like that as they looked live dogs throughout most of the game. When the outcome was on the line, however, Ben Roethlisberger was able to lead his Pittsburgh Steelers to a victory.

The Steelers got the ball back with two minutes and 15 seconds left on the game clock and meticulously moved the ball down the field, eventually allowing Shaun Suisham to kick the game-winning field goal as time expired. Suisham's kick made the final score 23-20 in favor of the Steelers.

The Steelers led the game 10-0 after the first quarter, but a pair of Roethlisberger fumbles in the second quarter -- thanks to fumbles forced by Robert Mathis and Dwight Freeney -- led to 10 points for the Colts and a 13-10 lead for the home team at halftime.

The second half saw the Colts insert former third-string quarterback Curtis Painter as the team's starter after aKerry Collins injury, and after struggling early -- including a fumble that led to a Troy Polamalu touchdown -- Painter led a terrific drive that was capped off with a Joseph Addai touchdown to tie the game with just a couple of minutes remaining in the game.

The Steelers were able to return the favor with a solid drive of their own, however, allowing them to finish the week with a 2-1 record while the Colts drop to 0-3 despite a spirited performance.
