STEELERS ON 11: Steelers clinch first-round bye with win against Texans

STEELERS ON 11: Steelers clinch first-round bye with win against Texans

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 20-of-29 passes for 226 yards and 2 touchdowns in Monday's win over the Houston Texans. 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.

Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward registered two more sacks against the Texans on Monday and that now gives him a team-high 12 for the season.

While the pregame saw heaving cheering for the Pittsburgh Steelers warming up, the 11-3 Steelers have one of the biggest fanbases of any team in America and travel better than most National Football League teams, it likely would have been a heavy crowd of Steelers fans for the Christmas day game if the Texans were more competitive. With that said, the defense led by Jadeveon Clowney is still quite frisky and capable of making numerous big plays. What they didn't need is T.J.

That's because the Steelers offense is as lethal as ever.




Antonio Brown may not be back as soon as initially believed. Having said that, there's no doubt that they would enjoy playing spoiler.

They held a comfortable 34-6 lead late against the Texans, and made a decision to take out several of their key players.

How can you tune in to Monday's Christmas Day showdown between Pittsburgh and Houston?
