“When you’re in the huddle with him, you know you’re going to have a chance to make some big plays.” — Antonio Brown on his quarterback.

Late Night Re-cap:

112516Ben passed for 221 yards and three touchdowns – each to Antonio Brown – giving the Steelers a 28-7 victory on a Thanksgiving night against the Colts, whose starting quarterback Andrew Luck was out with a concussion.

Ben completed 14 of 20 passes, and Le’Veon Bell rushed 23 times for 120 yards and a touchdown as the Steelers won for the second time in five days on the road after winning Sunday at Cleveland.

The offense scored touchdowns on each of its first three drives. Le’Veon Bell’s 5-yard touchdown run capped a seven-play, 52-yard drive the first time they had the ball making it 7-0. Ben made it 14-0 with 1:06 to go in the opening quarter on a 25-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown, capping a seven-play, 58-yard drive.

With the help of a 35-yard pass on a fake punt by Pat McAfee, the Colts pulled to within 14-7 with 13:02 left in the second quarter on Tolzien’s 5-yard touchdown pass to Donte Moncrief.

Ben countered with a 33-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown with 9:00 to go in the half, increasing the lead to 21-7.

And it wasn’t just the offense….

From Bob Labriola, Steelers.com:

The Steelers ended up winning this game, 28-7, but the way it unfolded could’ve been a lot different if not for the efforts of Mike Mitchell. On two different occasions, Mitchell made plays to prevent the Colts from scoring from the Steelers’ 1-yard line, and then his fourth quarter interception ended another Indianapolis possession and was the catalyst for the touchdown that iced the outcome…

Mitchell finished with seven tackles, an interception, and two passes defensed, and he is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.
