As the Pittsburgh Steelers prepare for their Week 3 matchup against the Houston Texans, they are also excited about their 2-0 start. Ben Roethlisberger has looked good in his return from a serious elbow injury and his supporting cast has looked great as well.
So far this season, the Steelers have defeated the New York Giants and Denver Broncos. Neither of those teams is considered to be a serious contender. However, the Texans are a team to keep an eye on despite their 0-2 start, losing to both the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens.
The Texans may be 0-2 after playing the top two teams in the AFC, but they have a talented roster. Deshaun Watson is an elite NFL quarterback and they have a lot of weapons around him. Houston does not have a great defense, however, which the Steelers will look to take advantage of this week.
Roethlisberger has had a very solid first two games back, completing 68.5 percent of his pass attempts for 540 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception. He looks good and the Steelers will be playoff contenders if he can keep up his level of play from the first two weeks.
All of that being said, let’s take a look at four bold predictions for the Steelers this week as they take on the Texans.
