Winners and Losers from Steelers 30-23 win over Houston Texans

A horrendous start was followed by an explosive end of the first half. After that, the defense held strong in the win. Winners Martavis Bryant - Welcome to the show, rookie. On his second target, Bryant made his first NFL catch, a 35-yard touchdown strike from Ben Roethlisberger during a furious 24-point rally from the Steelers. It was the big play the Steelers needed to get back on track after a horrendous start to the game. Le'Veon Bell - He had his best receiving game as a pro, and ran very well as the Steelers' primary offensive weapon. He ran for tough, hard yards as Houston looked to...

Martavis Bryant catches first NFL pass on TD from Ben Roethlisberger (video)

The Pittsburgh Steelers may have finally found the spark they needed to get their offense going. Trailing 13-3 in their Monday night contest with the Houston Texans, Pitt was in desperate need of someone to step up on offense, and they got it from a guy playing in his first NFL game. Rookie wide receiver Martavis Bryant had been inactive in each of the Steelers' first six games while he recovered from a preseason hamstring injury in addition to learning the playbook. Bryant is made quite a debut with his second-quarter score to give the Steelers' their first touchdown of the...

As for the Texans, they have notorious Oakland Raider killer...

Week 7 Monday Night Football open thread: Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers

JJ Watt and Ben Roethlisberger face off against one another on Monday Night Football. AFC South meets AFC North tonight in the concluding game of week 7, as the 3-3 Houston Texans travel to face the 3-3 Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field. The Texans are second in their division, two games behind the 5-2 Indianapolis Colts, whom they lost to 33-28 in the week 5 Thursday night game.  Having fallen to the Dallas Cowboys 17-20 in overtime the week before, they'll be looking to avoid a third straight loss. The Texans will also be hoping that first overall pick in the 2014 draft Jadeveon Clowney...
Steelers 2-Minute Drill: Attacking J.J. Watt, Texans pass rush

Steelers 2-Minute Drill: Attacking J.J. Watt, Texans pass rush

On this week's edition of the Steelers 2-Minute Drill, BTSC editor Neal Coolong talks about how the Steelers can beat J.J. Watt and the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football. The Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive line has a tough assignment in dealing with arguably the best defensive player in the past decade in Houston Texans' defensive lineman J.J. Watt. Offensive coordinator Todd Haley and Ben Roethlisberger will have to be creative to find ways of neutralizing Watt and his skill set, but as BTSC editor Neal Coolong discusses in this week's Steelers 2-Minute Drill, you might not have to...
Monday night would be a good time for Ben Roethlisberger to upstage J.J. Watt

Monday night would be a good time for Ben Roethlisberger to upstage J.J. Watt

Stage is the biggest, lights are the brightest, no better time for Steelers QB Ben Roehtlisberger to out-duel Texans super-stud DE J.J. Watt. J.J. Watt and the Houston Texans will be at Heinz Field Monday evening for a nationally televised Week 7 clash against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It's kind of weird giving a defensive end (one who plays in a 3-4 scheme, no doubt) top billing before his actual team, but that's just how dominant Watt has been for most of his career that already includes 40.5 quarterback sacks in 54 games. (Did I mention Watt is a 3-4 defensive end?) Watt deserves all...

Browns vs. Jaguars key matchup: Browns aware of Blake Bortles’ abilities, weaknesses

BEREA: Browns coach Mike Pettine alluded to the fact that some people refer to Jacksonville Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles as “Baby Ben,” a reference to his resemblance in stature [6-foot-5, 232 pounds] to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger.The Browns can control whether Bortles has similar success to Roethlisberger when they play the Jaguars on Sunday at 1 p.m. in Jacksonville.“The success that he’s having does not come as any surprise. He can make all the throws,” Pettine said of Bortles. “People call him ‘Baby Ben’ because of the resemblance to...

Hines Ward blames Ben Roethlisberger, not Todd Haley

To Ward, it's all about the playcalling in the no huddle. The Steelers aren't running a lot of no huddle so far this year, but this isn't a question of blame as much as it is responsibility. It's all about blame in Pittsburgh today. Ex-Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward is continuing his bout of relevancy by discussing the current state of affairs surrounding the team. He put the blame squarely on Ben Roethlisberger in a recent appearance on NBCSN. Ward's reasoning is based in the notion Roethlisberger is calling the plays in the no huddle offense, not Todd Haley. As true as that may (or...

Questions persist about whether Ben Roethlisberger is making too many decisions in Steelers' offense

An inside report from CBS’s Jason La Canfora suggests some around the league wonder whether Haley has now given too much responsibility to Ben Roethlisberger in the floundering Steelers' offense. My, how the tides have turned.Not even two years after rumors flew over whether Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and offensive coordinator Todd Haley were ready to step into the Octagon to settle their differences, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora spoke on 93.7 The Fan Thursday, citing sources who wonder openly whether Roethlisberger now has too much control over the offense and whether Haley...
