Steelers Nip Colts 23-20

INDIANAPOLIS -- Shaun Suisham kicked a 38-yard field goal with 4 seconds left Sunday night, lifting the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 23-20 victory at Indianapolis.

It was a wild game that turned three times in the final 5 1/2 minutes and was far closer than most expected. The Steelers (2-1) struggled as Ben Roethlisberger lost two fumbles and threw an interception during an 11-minute first-half span, and they rushed for only 67 yards. Even when they thought they had finally shaken off the feisty Colts (0-3), they hadn't. After James Harrison forced Curtis Painter's fumble and Troy Polamalu ran it 16 yards for a 20-13 lead with 5:13 left, Painter led Indy on an 80-yard drive. It was capped by Joseph Addai's tying 6-yard TD run with 2:09 to go. But Roethlisberger came back with a 60-yard march to set up the winning score.
