Keys To The Game

For Houston:

1. Can their secondary contain Markus Wheaton? He has caught 24 passes for 277 yards.
2. Can DeAndre Hopkins play like he did last week? He caught all 6 passes thrown his way for 63 yards.
3. Can they block Jason Worilds? He has 17 tackles and 2 sacks.

For Pittsburgh:

1. Can they stop Brooks Reed? He has 17 tackles, 1 sack and 1 interception.
2. Can Heath Miller bounce back? He only caught 3 passes for 43 yards in his last game.
3. Can they contain Damaris Johnson? He has caught 8 passes for 133 yards and 1 touchdown.

 

My Prediction

The Texans want to make this a defensive battle while the Steelers want to make this a higher scoring game. Whichever team plays to their style will have the best chance at winning the game.

I think that this game is a lower scoring defensive battle. I think the Texans take advantage of the game being a defensive game by forcing a couple turnovers and going on the road to beat the Steelers.

Final Score

Houston: 24
Pittsburgh: 17
