Now, the Colts have to win this game without one of their best wide receivers. This is a crucial game for both teams considering that each team has a 7-6 record. Just how good has Pittman been this season?
Pittman has 984 receiving yards and four touchdown receptions this season. He has 3,494 receiving yards and 15 touchdown receptions in 59 career games. That includes four catches for 78 receiving yards in today’s game against the Steelers.
