    This.If they win this game against a good quality opponent it bodes well for them in the future.If they lose this one everyone will remark about how the Texans can't beat anyone but inferior teams.

    Pittsburgh barely beat a crappy Colts team.Not a good sign.

    Most of us here know Pittsburgh is not doing well this season at all.Blownout by Baltimore and they barely beat the lowly Colts without Manning.They struggled to beat the Colts and the bad thing is the Texans blew the Colts out.

    I'm like everyone else here i want to see Houston lose because that benefits Tennessee in the AFC South.Houston losing helps us in the standings and i'm hoping they do lose to Pittsburgh.However the offensive line is very weak and the Texans defense is going to decimate the Steelers offense.

    If The Steelers defense comes out strong and plays well this could be a very low scoring game.Schaub and Andre Johnson are going to give Pittsburgh headaches through the air because the Steelers can stop the run but can they stop a massive passing attack???

    Can the Steelers stop the Houston passing game?? Thats the key.

    I think it's hilarious to read comments like "Houston will not lose to Pittsburgh."

    The Steelers, a perennial playoff team with six championships versus a team who's never made the playoffs. I don't care that the Steelers are on the fall and the Texans are on the rise. To say that this is a definite win for the Texans is beyond absurd... And I am, in no way, saying that the Texans are guaranteed a loss. They're certainly capable of beating the Steelers, but I'll stick to the more reliable, proven team.

    Completely illogical thought process coming from some of you.

    If i was a betting man on Sunday i'd have to go with Houston.Yes they might lose or end up playing a bad game and of course Pittsburgh is no pushover by any means.But Pittsburgh as much as i hate to say it don't look good at all so far this season.Big Ben is going to get hurt very soon and everyone knows it because he is running for his life behind the very worst O line in football.Even on D Pittsburgh hasn't looked like they usually do.Thing is Houston as much as i hate them do seem to be finally clicking on offense and defense.The Houston defense is going to give Pittsburgh a lot of trouble.

    Also i noticed no one has mentioned yet that after the Steelers play the Texans Sunday that we then face the Steelers next weekend.Maybe the Texans will wear them down real good for us so they just might be pretty banged up when we face them next week.Honestly i can't wait for our top ranked defense to go crazy on the Steelers pathetic offensive line.

    Besides Titans/Browns that Pittsburgh at Houston game is pretty much the game of the week along with Jets vs. Ravens.Both of those will be hard fought contests.Two big AFC matchups.Oh and the Raiders/Patriots is a good one too.

    Jets should take that one though, saying that Ravens do have a knack of bouncing from loss to a win
