STEELERS ON 11: Steelers clinch first-round bye with win against Texans

Tom Brady to Vince Williams after Steelers-Pats: 'Good pick'

Currently, the Steelers are 11-3 and in the No. 2 spot in the AFC playoff race.

Without that competitive Texans team, Monday's game is sure to feel like a 9th home game for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

What this means for T.J. Yates: Through 25 minutes of play, he's completed as many passes to Texans receivers (one) as Steelers cornerbacks.

Damian Green resigns from Cabinet position
Mr Quick told the BBC he will continue to "seek a retraction" of the comments Mr Green made about him, saying the matter was "in the hands of my lawyers".

Houston has lost five consecutive games and eight of nine since its mid-October bye week. And it really feels like the Steelers are going to take out all their frustration on the 4-10 Texans.

One was offensive lineman David Quessenberry playing his first regular season game after spending three years battling lymphoma and the other was wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins' remarkable juggling catch while getting his feet down in the end zone for the only Houston points of the day. Yates left the game for a drive to start the second half as he was in concussion protocol, but returned to throw for 7 yards and a touchdown. Texans P Shane Lechler appeared in his 285th game and passed Sean Landeta for 15th in National Football League history. Yates replaced Heinicke on the next series.

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.
