The Indianapolis Colts (5-5) will host their first Thanksgiving Day game in team history as they welcome the Pittsburgh Steelers (5-5) for a primetime holiday showdown.
The Colts are 2-0 all-time on Thanksgiving, as they defeated the Detroit Lions in 2004 and the Atlanta Falcons in 2007. This will be the first one in Indianapolis, however, and it will certainly be a good atmosphere as the team also honors Tony Dungy and Marvin Harrison with their Hall of Fame rings at halftime.
The game itself, however, could be a bit less interesting as Andrew Luck will miss the contest with a concussion, meaning that it will be Scott Tolzien in line to start. That’s an obvious mismatch in the Steelers’ favor, and while Pittsburgh has been somewhat inconsistent this year they’ve still got a dangerous offense that can put up the points.
Here’s everything you need to know to get ready for the holiday matchup:
