Steelers rout Texans to clinch playoff bye

Steelers rout Texans to clinch playoff bye

Will Monday's Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Texans matchup go over the betting total when the two teams meet Christmas Day at 4:30 p.m. ET? Standing in their way, though, will be the Houston Texans, who would love to wreak some havoc at home.

The Steelers recorded first downs on their initial four snaps, quickly covering 57 yards before bogging down in the red zone.

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. And it really feels like the Steelers are going to take out all their frustration on the 4-10 Texans. After one play in the second quarter and eight plays in the third - including his first career pass attempt and completion - Heinicke left the game to be evaluated for a possible concussion and did not return. Taylor Heinicke made his National Football League debut and played two series before Yates returned early in the third quarter.

President Donald Trump Commutes Sentence of Shlomo Rubashkin
The Obama administration rebuffed arguments in favor of Rubashkin, and in January, Chief U.S. The U.S. attorney's office denied the allegations.

Hilton is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week. 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.

If you play in the defensive backfield for the Pittsburgh Steelers and you do something that hadn't been done since Troy Polamalu in 2005, you have done something special.
