Houston Texans News: Week 3 not much easier in Pittsburgh

The toughest stretch of games continues in Week 3 on the road — in the Steel City — against the Pittsburgh Steelers. This game should have future Hall of Famer Ben Roethlisberger under center for the Steelers, and on defense J.J. Watt‘s younger brother T.J. Watt will be doing his best to outplay his brother.

Sure, the Steelers aren’t the Baltimore Ravens like the previous week, but after two what should be tough games on the Texans schedule, the third game of the season is against a franchise that is known for their overall toughness and how they will make teams battle to the end.

This game will show how battle-tested the Texans are in the third game of the year, and depending how well they played in the first two games, a lot of the story for the 2020 Texans will be told in this game.

In facing Roethlisberger, the Texans will be facing a veteran quarterback returning from a injury that cost him much of last season on the field with Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger returns with his Hall of Fame pedigree, and that isn’t to be taken lightly, even if “Big Ben” is starting to miss more time each season due to varying injuries.

Playing the Steelers in Pittsburgh after the first two games isn’t exactly fair to the Texans, but like we’ve said many times if Houston wants to be spoken with when the best teams conversation comes along, winning games early in this schedule will make them the topic of the entire conversation.
