That was a fun one.
The coffee tastes a little better this morning after that resounding Texans win.
The Steelers won the coin flip to begin the game, and didn't win much else after that. They deferred and gave Houston the ball first, and the Texans promptly offense marched down the field and scored three different times on the opening drive. (A penalty and an overturned spot took two touchdowns off the board.) Then the defense picked off a Kenny Pickett pass to end Pittsburgh's opening offensive possession.
It was a runaway win...and so...damned...fun.
As the players explained, it was extremely important to pick up the first NRG Stadium victory since the day after Christmas, 2021.
Cornerback Steven Nelson continues to ball out. His acrobatic interception got the defense rolling in the first quarter.
Elsewhere in town, the Astros won ANOTHER division title yesterday. They've now made the playoffs SEVEN...STRAIGHT...SEASONS. Buckle up. It's going to be another topsy-turvy October...and MAYBE November?
