Deshaun Watson and the Texans offense chopped up the Steelers defense on a first quarter scoring drive that resulted in a 28-yard scoring strike to Randall Cobb.
The Watson-to-Cobb connection was one of three longer passes for Houston on the drive.
The fourth-year quarterback found Brandin Cooks for a 20-yard completion on a 3rd-and-3 earlier that possession, and he linked up with Will Fuller, V for a 17-yarder on the very next play. Three plays later, the Texans were in the end zone, and the Ka'imi Fairbairn extra point gave them a 7-3 advantage with 6:01 left in the opening quarter.
Watson was 3-of-4 on the drive for 65 yards and the score.
