Texans vs. Steelers: TV schedule, radio, live stream, where to watch
Here is how to watch the Houston Texans at the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
For the first time this season the Houston Texans will be playing in an early game on Sunday, as they’ll be facing the host Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.
The Steelers are rolling along this season with two wins to start the year by defeating the New York Giants (26-16) and the Denver Broncos (26-21). This Week 3 game against the Houston Texans will also be the second straight home game for Pittsburgh as they are 2-0 and in first place in the AFC North.
The Houston Texans have played the toughest schedule of anyone in the first two weeks of the 2020 NFL regular season. The Texans have losses to the Kansas City Chiefs (34-20) and the Baltimore Ravens (33-16), with this being the second road game for the team to start the season.
Besides the battle at quarterback between Deshaun Watson and Ben Roethlisberger, the running backs of the two respective teams is something that draws attention as being an interesting showdown for comparison.
In the first two Houston Texans games this season, David Johnson has has 11 rushes in both contests as the season opener saw him have 11 carries for 77 yards and one touchdown. That same game he also caught three passes.
The following week, Johnson had 11 rushes for 34 yards with two receptions and no scores. For the season that adds up to 22 carries for 111 yards, with a 5.0 yards per rush average. As for Sunday, it would be interesting to see how Johnson would do with more than 11 carries in a game. Now is the time to see if the Houston Texans can control the pace of the game for a change, and to do so Johnson is going to need more carries.
For Pittsburgh, Benny Snell leads the team with 22 carries for 118 yards and a 5.4 yards per rush average. James Conner has 22 carries as well for 115 yards with one touchdown for a 5.2 yards per rush average.
The running back battle should be fun to watch, but it would be nice to see how David Johnson could do if given more carries to see if he can help the Texans offense actually stay on the field longer than their opponent in a game.
