The Steelers will be heading to Indianapolis to take on the Colts in a match-up of two 5-5 teams. Both squads will be looking to pick up an important sixth win of the season and both teams need a win to keep their 2016 playoff chances alive.
Rogers is becoming a key part of the Steelers’ offense after spending some time being injured this season. A toe injury kept him sidelined for a few weeks, but he is slowly getting back into the swing of things.
He currently has 27 receptions for 300 yards and two touchdowns this season. The Colts’ secondary doesn’t have too much talent, therefore Rogers could be in for a special night on Thanksgiving day.
Indianapolis will focus most of their attention on Steelers’ receiver Antonio Brown, which will give Rogers more than enough opportunities to make big plays in front of a rowdy crowd Thursday night.
With that being said, I fully expect Pittsburgh and Rogers to going into Lucas Oil Stadium and get the victory.
