The Indianapolis Colts looked pretty good in their week 1 preseason contest against the St.Louis Rams winning 38-3, while the Pittsburgh Steelers shut out the Philadelphia Eagles in the first half of their matchup before losing a double digit lead in the second half for a 23-24 loss.
The Steelers held Mike Vick to 3-of-4 passing for 6 yards and a sack in their season opener. Clearly this defense is looking to continue its long-held dominance into the 2012 season. Against the Colts, expect Troy Polamalu to play more than the three snaps he had last week in the preseason opener against the Eagles. But how much time this injury-prone superstar will see has yet to be determined. However, one thing is for sure: His presence on the field will give Luck plenty to think about. Polamalu has a reputation as being one of the most difficult guys in the league to read. If Luck manages to make the Steelers defense look bad, well, we may be looking at the one guy capable of stealing the spotlight from Tim Tebow.
This matchup should be quite the test for No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck as he continues his maturation process. Luck looked the part last week against the lowly Rams defense, picking St. Louis apart like a 10-year veteran. He came into this league with a reputation bigger than life itself. As of right now, he has met expectations. However, if anyone can put a damper on the phenomenon known as Andrew Luck, it’s the man with the hair, Troy Polamalu.
