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

Pittsburgh was never seriously challenged by the 4-11 Texans in a game they led 10-0 after eight minutes and 20-0 at halftime.

Luckily, the NFL Christmas Day schedule includes two incredible games which ironically feature both Pennsylvania teams who each look to improve their schedules heading into the final stretch of the regular season.

The Houston Texans receiver made a stunning one-handed touchdown catch early in the fourth quarter of Monday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

They held a comfortable 34-6 lead late against the Texans, and chose to take out several of their key players. Yates six times and Yates was knocked out of the game briefly for a concussion evaluation.

Ostapenko , 20, broke through with a stunning French Open title, and she will take on Serena Williams for the first time. Williams last played professionally last January at the Australian Open , winning her 23rd Grand Slam while pregnant.


While the Texans should have run the ball, what made the play calls even worse was that neither pass was intended for Houston's best receiver - DeAndre Hopkins. That meant quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and running back Le'Veon Bell were of course coming out, but some offensive linemen also finished the game on the sidelines.

The Steelers hurried and harassed Yates all day with Mike Hilton leading the way with three sacks and three quarterback hits, Cameron Heyward adding two and forcing a fumble.

I talked to 14 groups of Steelers fans who were waiting to head into the stadium pre-game to find out when they bought their tickets and where they came from to get here on Christmas and how they obtained their tickets.
