The 3 and 3 Steelers enter tonight's game coming off a loss and have won and lost games in a strange alternating fashion all year long meaning tonight, if they hold true to form should be a win for Pittsburgh. The Steelers will need to start stringing together wins to climb from the bottom of their division but are not in terrible shape and a win tonight would put them only one game back of division leaders the Baltimore Ravens. A good start for the Steelers would be to steady their offensive line. Starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has already been sacked 17 times in the first 6 weeks of the season which is the second worst number in the NFL coming in to the week.

Houston will no doubt key in on the weakness of the Steelers offensive line led by defensive end J.J. Watt. J.J. comes in to the week with 20 hits on the quarterback and 4 sack in only 6 games. The Texans have recorded 10 sacks as a team in those same 6 games. Tonight could also mark the return of the Texans first round linebacker Jadeveon Clowney helping further bolster the defenses pass defense. The Texans will also need to overcome their slow starts that have plagued them on offense this season. Another slow start coast them in week 6 in a 33 to 28 loss at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts.
