The Monday night football game for week seven in the National Football League features two teams that have failed to live up to expectations this season. The Pittsburgh Steelers host the Houston Texans in this prime time affair and both teams are looking to recover from ugly losses.
The Steelers had a disgusting loss against the Cleveland Browns. The Browns were making a statement and taking their frustrations out on the Steelers for years of beatings. The loss was difficult for the Steelers since it was a divisional game. The Steelers main weakness was stopping the run. Two Browns rushed for at least 75 yards Sunday, with Isaiah Crowell and Ben Tate each finding the end zone. The Steelers should be tested once again as they face the Texans and Arian Foster, one of the best running backs in the NFL.
The Texans are also off an ugly loss to the Indianapolis Colts. The Texans were behind early and never could recover losing an important game in the divisional standings. The Colts scored 24 first-quarter points. Coming into the game, the Texans had not allowed a first-quarter point. The only good thing for the Texans is that they get some extra rest coming into this game since they played on a Thursday night.
