And it really feels like the Steelers are going to take out all their frustration on the 4-10 Texans.

The Steelers led 20-0 at halftime after taking advantage of two turnovers by the Texans.

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown will have an extra week to recover if the plan is for him to return from his calf injury for the team's first postseason game.

Currently, the Steelers are 11-3 and in the No. 2 spot in the AFC playoff race. Starting quarterback T.J. Yates left the game to be evaluated for a possible concussion. 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. That Steelers defense is not playing well at the moment and despite Houston being banged-up offensively, I like the Texans to move the ball consistently. It's sure to be an interesting game but one that the Steelers should have the edge in.

While the pregame saw heaving cheering for the Pittsburgh Steelers warming up, the 11-3 Steelers have one of the biggest fanbases of any team in America and travel better than most National Football League teams, it likely would have been a heavy crowd of Steelers fans for the Christmas day game if the Texans were more competitive.

There have been a slew of highlight-reel touchdown catches this season, but the best of them all might have taken place in Houston on Christmas Day.
