The Steelers locked up a first round bye in the playoffs with a 34-6 win over the Texans on Christmas in Houston. Ben Roethlisberger threw two touchdowns and left the game midway through the fourth quarter when the outcome was well in hand. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Justin Hunter were on the receiving end of the scores. Le'Veon Bell and Roosevelt Nix rushed for touchdowns as Pittsburgh improved to 12-and-3. DeAndre Hopkins' circus catch in the fourth quarter accounted for the lone Texans score. T.J. Yates was sacked seven times and turned the ball over twice for Houston as it fell to 4-and-11. Alfred Blue rumbled for 108 yards in defeat.
