Week 8: vs Indianapolis Colts

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Ben Roethlisberger bounced back from a blah outing at Cleveland (21/42 for 228 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with two sacks taken for -7 yards) to post 23/33 for 265 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions with two sacks taken for -16 yards vs. Houston last week. Antonio Brown (13 for 9/90/0) and Le'Veon Bell (eight for 8/88/1) were his main receivers last week, with Martavis Bryant (five for 2/40/1) also bringing down a TD. Lance Moore (2/12/1 receiving) caught a TD from Brown (1/1 for three yards and a TD). Pittsburgh had fun beating the Texans last week. The Colts' pass D is ranked fifth in the NFL in net yards allowed per game (214.4), with eight passing scores balanced by six interceptions (tied-14h in the NFL) and 21 sacks (tied for third). The Steelers have allowed 20 sacks this season (29th in the NFL) - you can expect Roethlisberger to go down at least a few times during this game. Last week, Cincinnati was utterly dominated by the Colts in this phase of the game (18/38 for 103 net yards, with four sacks taken for -23 yards), while Ryan Fitzpatrick was sacked five times for -16 yards two weeks ago (15/23 for 196 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions thrown). Advantage, Indianapolis.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs JAX (1 / 1 / 26 / 0 rec)

Moore played minimally again this week (~ 20% of snaps) and managed to pull in his only target of the game, a 26-yard pass over the middle.

2014 Week 6 vs CLE (6 / 1 / 26 / 1 rec)

Lance Moore saw the most playing time of his short stint with the Steelers, playing nearly half of the offensive snaps; it appears that he could be slowly supplanting Justin Brown as the Steelers' WR3. Moore caught the only Steelers' touchdown of the day when he ran a post route from the right slot in the 4th quarter; on the play, Roethlisberger rolled out of the pocket to buy additional time and the veteran Moore got separation that enabled a 26-yard touchdown reception. Moore did, however, drop a nicely-placed 3rd and 17 pass from Roethlisberger in the 3rd quarter that would have gotten the Steelers into the redzone.

2014 Week 7 vs HOU (2 / 2 / 12 / 1 rec)

Moore made the most of his limited time (35% of offensive snaps) on the field in Week 7. He was targeted only twice, but caught both passes in his direction. At the end of the 2nd quarter, Moore was on the receiving end of an Antonio Brown touchdown pass; it was a designed trick play where Brown was tossed the ball on a sweep, but Brown reversed direction and eventually found Moore in the endzone, who was open on a crossing route.
