INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Shaun Suisham booted a 38-yard field goal with 4 seconds remaining Sunday, handing the Pittsburgh Steelers a 23-20 win over Indianapolis.

Suisham's kick came after a 10-play, 60-yard drive highlighted by Mewelde Moore's 22-yard pass reception and run to the Indianapolis 41-yard line.

Pittsburgh's Troy Polamalu recovered a fumble by Colts quarterback Curtis Painter and returned it 16 yards for a touchdown with 5:13 remaining in the game, giving the Steelers a brief 20-13 advantage.

But Painter responded by marching the Colts 80 yards in 10 plays, capped by a 6-yard Joseph Addai touchdown run with 2:09 left.

Ben Roethlisberger went 25-of-37 through the air for 364 yards, a TD and an interception for the Steelers (2-1), with Mike Wallace making five grabs for 144 yards and a score.

Kerry Collins started at quarterback for Indianapolis (0-3) and gained only 93 yards on 13-of-29 passing before leaving the game in favor of Painter, who finished 5-of-11 for 60 yards.
