The Pittsburgh Steelers line up against the Houston Texans on Monday night at Heinz Field.  Yoni Pollak, editor of House of Houston, reached out to me to talk about this matchup.

The Steelers and Texans are both sitting at 3-3 this season, but most observers would be able to see that Houston’s stock is up while Pittsburgh’s stock is quickly sinking.  Both teams are coming off of loses from Week 6.  The Texans are showing a ton of heart, especially during what almost turned into a miraculous comeback against the Colts.  The Steelers are still searching for the kind of football team they need to be and have struggled on both sides of the ball – most notably in the Red Zone for the offense, and rushing the passer/causing turnovers for the defense.

Yoni and I hit up talking about JJ Watt and how the Steelers plan on attempting to stop this one man wrecking machine.  Can the Steelers even protect Ben this week?  We also talk about game plans for the evening as well as the recent turnaround of this Texans squad – they were just 2-14 last season and have already surpassed their win total just six weeks in.
