We are looking for information on a game that has been nominated by a reader as one of the great Colts games ever.
Reader JD says:
You’re gonna have to help me out with the year but what about the game against Pittsburgh when Butler caught the deflected pass for a long touchdown at the end of the game for the win. It was 1980 something at the dome.
Here’s what I know:
On October 21st, 1984 at the Dome the Colts beat the Steelers 17-16. The Colts scored all 17 points in the 4th quarter. I can only assume this is the game he means. I was 7 or 8 at the time, so I don’t remember this game. If anyone out there has the full story on this great comeback, drop us a line at email@example.com. It seems like a natural nominee for important Colts game. A big home comeback in the first year in Indy certainly belongs on the list.
