With the Steelers week three matchup quickly approaching, here are five bold predictions for the roster against the Texans
The Steelers have looked impressive through the first two weeks of the year, putting up 52 combined points and seeing their defense lead the league in pressures. While not quite a well-oiled machine yet, the Steelers have been doing a good job of consistently solid play. While the defense is still the main appeal of this team, the offense is starting to come around and look like a credible unit.
That doesn’t mean there haven’t been issues though. The Steelers’ rushing attack has been inconsistent and for the most part, ineffective. As well, the TE group has done little to inspire excitement, struggling to see targets and block. Finally, the secondary has been worse than most fans expected. Luckily, these units haven’t derailed the Steelers season yet, but the struggles are still there.
While the Texans present a difficult matchup, it is one that the Steelers are still expected to win. Don’t expect this to be an easy matchup though, as the Texans boast one of the best QBs in the NFL and a defense that is ripe with talent. While on paper this game should be relatively high scoring with clean QB play, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see some unique plays and outcomes by the finale of it. With all of this said, here are five bold predictions for the Steelers week three matchup against the Texans.
