It’s been a long month for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Three straight losses and backing into the playoffs after winning 11 straight will do that to a team. And on Sunday, when the Steelers came out against the Indianapolis Colts, it looked to be a repeat of the past three games.

The team came out in the first half with zero energy and this wasn’t a detail missed by wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. He admitted as much when he spoke to the media after the game.

According to Smith-Schuster, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and center Maurkice Pouncey addressed the team at halftime and you saw a completely different team come out in the second half.

Smith-Schuster himself had a huge second half. After a slow start, Smith-Schuster finished with nine catches for 96 yards and a receiving touchdown.
