Gardner Minshew and the Colts beat the Steelers 30-13 to keep their playoff hopes alive

MINSHEW MANIA Is alive and well in Indianapolis. Minshew matched his career high with three touchdown passes and completed 18/28 passes for 215 yards. It was the backup quarterback's big plays with the backup receivers that made the Colts' offense go.

When asked about the win, Minshew said. "We needed to win these games and we’ve done a great job down the stretch,” Minshew said. “I think everybody was locked in, the urgency was there, the attention to detail. At this point it’s all about winning games, however, you’ve got to get it done.”

Despite being at the bottom of the AFC South, Minshew and the Colts (8-6) have won five of their last six games. Since tiebreakers determine the AFC's No. 7 team, they will remain there after this weekend's games.

Pittsburgh took an early 13-0 lead behind backup quarterback Mitch Trubisky, who made his second start replacing the injured Kenny Pickett. By the time the Colts scored 30 consecutive points in the fourth quarter, third-string quarterback Mason Rudolph was passing for the Steelers.
