The Thanksgiving NFL tripleheader concludes with an AFC battle between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Indianapolis Colts.
Like the other four teams playing on Thanksgiving, the Steelers and the Colts are fresh off of Week 11 victories – though the Colts’ triumph was a bit more costly. Quarterback Andrew Luck suffered a concussion during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s win against the Tennessee Titans. He’s been ruled out of tonight’s game. Scott Tolzien gets the start under center in Luck’s place, as the Colts look to pull within a half game of AFC South leader Houston.
The Steelers, meanwhile, sit tied atop the putrid AFC North at 5-5 along with the Baltimore Ravens. A Thanksgiving showdown against the Luck-less Colts gives them a golden opportunity to notch a sixth win and get over .500 with five games left to play.
Kickoff is at 8:30 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on NBC. Mike Tirico and Cris Collinsworth have the call. NBC will stream the game on its website, or you can use either the NBC Sports app or the NFL Mobile app to watch on your phone or tablet. Those apps can be downloaded from the Apple App Store, Google Play, and the Windows Store. A cable subscription is required for the free stream
