In the first of two Christmas NFL games the 11-3 Pittsburgh Steelers travel to NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas to take on the 4-10 Houston Texans.

The Houston Texans come into the game missing their top two quarterbacks. It's been that kind of year for the Texans. Losers of seven of their last eight games and sporting one of the worst turnover differentials in the NFL, the Texans don't figure to put up much of a fight against a Steelers team still fighting for the #1 seed in the AFC playoffs.

The Pittsburgh Steelers come into this game winners of eight of their last nine games. They will be missing All Pro receiver Antonio Brown, but the Steelers still figure to have more than enough firepower to take care of a Texans team with nothing to play for but pride.The Steelers need this game to keep pace with the New England Patriots for the #1 seed in the AFC playoffs.

It's the Steelers and the Texans in a rare Monday afternoon game.
