Steelers vs. Texans: 4 bold predictions sure to go wrong

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady celebrates scoring during the first quarter of an NFL football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field on Sunday Steelers vs. Texans: 4 bold predictions sure to go wrong

He had a pair of turnovers in the loss.

After struggling with below-average teams this season, the Steelers dominated the Texans.

Roethlisberger threw passes to six players as Pittsburgh (12-3) romped over the lowly Texans (4-11) despite missing National Football League leading receiver Antonio Brown, who sat out with a calf injury. Seeing their team not play down to their opponent had to be a welcome Christmas gift for Steelers fans.

One player the Steelers may have left in the game too long, however, is rookie outside linebacker T.J. Watt. The first pass went over the head of a wide-open Braxton Miller in the corner of the end zone. The drive ended with zero points, and Pittsburgh's less-depressing field position has helped spark a scoring drive Ben Roethlisberger has pushed deep into Houston territory. One team that hopes to thwart their plans is the Houston Texans who have been struggling in recent weeks due to a number of injuries - particularly in the quarterback position. Houston's offense is not very good, but the Texans can still run the ball with efficiency.




Bell finished with 14 carries for 69 yards and Smith-Schuster had six receptions for 75 yards.

Former Clemson (and current Texans) WR DeAndre Hopkins may have just made the NFL's catch of the year, although it will unlikely affect the outcome of the game.

The Steelers and Patriots each now have first-round byes as the top two seeds in the AFC.
