At Lucas Oil Stadium on Monday night, the Indianapolis Colts will play host to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Pittsburgh's defense T.J. Watt has been uneven as a result of the –

edge defender missing seven games due to a pectoral muscle injury.

The Steelers' pass defense is the worst in the league and they are ranked 28th overall.

But Pittsburgh's running defense ranks ninth, which helps the team's defensive line against Taylor.

The previous couple of seasons, Indianapolis' offensive line hasn't been as strong as it once was,

making it possible for the Watt-led defense to pressure Ryan in the pocket.

Additionally, Pittsburgh's defense will benefit from having Minkah Fitzpatrick back for his second game after

having his appendix removed in Week 10. While offseason acquisition Myles Jack leads the team with 48 tackles in

his debut season with Pittsburgh, third-year player Alex Highsmith is having an outstanding season with nine sacks.

Will the Steelers defense continue to play the same this week, or might this be Watt's breakthrough week?
