The Houston Texans (3-3) travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers (3-3) in a Monday Night contest that I expect to be full of fireworks.
In my opinion the Steelers will attack the Texans though the air with the deep ball in much the same way the Indianapolis Colts did. Steelers WR Antonio Brown is everything that Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is….only better. For the Texans to win JJ Watt will have to take it up a notch (it that’s even possible) to contain Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger.
On the flip side of the ball I think the Texans need to apply a heavy dose of Arian Foster to win. Former Texan RB Ben Tate pounded the Steelers for 78 yards and 2 TD’s when they played the Cleveland Browns. I believe Foster can have greater success than Tate if he gets about 25 carries.
My final score. Texans 27 – Steelers 24.
