Steelers, Texans

The Houston Texans will enter Sunday’s AFC tilt against the Pittsburgh Steelers with an 0-2 record, whereas the home team will sport a perfect 2-0 record.

The Steelers are favored to win the game which will feature all 3 Watt brothers for the first time, and only the second time this feat has occurred since 1927 (this also happened last year with the 3 Edmunds brothers).

The Texans desperately need a win to avoid their second 0-3 start in 3 years, though they did make the playoffs the last time that happened in 2018.

Pittsburgh, on the other hand, cannot afford to lose to lesser opponents if they want to stay in the thick of the AFC Playoff race and compete against Baltimore for the division crown.

Who will win, who will star for both teams, and what should we expect? Here are five bold predictions for the game on Sunday.
