The 22-year-old’s score pulled the Steelers level at 10-10 during the second quarter, a touchdown which proved pivotal as Pittsburgh edged the Indianapolis Colts 26-24 for a third consecutive win.

Indianapolis kicker Adam Vinatieri missed a potential game-winning field goal attempt, pulling it wide left from 42 yards with one minute 11 seconds remaining and the Steelers ran out the clock.

The win for the Steelers takes them to 4-4 at the midway point of the season, while the Colts are 5-3.
