Steelers vs. Texans live stream, start time, betting odds and TV information for Monday's National Football League matchup between Pittsburgh and Houston on Christmas Day.

The Steelers will close out their 2017 regular season with a home game against the Cleveland Browns, whose offense enters Week 17 having already allowed 44 sacks.

What this means for the Texans: Houston trailed within five minutes of starting this game, so getting some early points were paramount to the team's upset chances. The Steelers led 20-0 at the intermission and pushed their advantage to 27-0 on a 10-yard touchdown run by running back Le'Veon Bell with 1:48 left in the third. Seeing their team not play down to their opponent had to be a welcome Christmas gift for Steelers fans.

Trump lavished the troops with praise on "how well we're doing" in the fight against terrorism and declared, "We're winning". President Donald Trump delivered a Christmas message to troops overseas from Mar-A-Lago, where he's spending the holidays.

What this means for T.J. Yates: Through 25 minutes of play, he's completed as many passes to Texans receivers (one) as Steelers cornerbacks.

Former Clemson (and current Texans) WR DeAndre Hopkins may have just made the NFL's catch of the year, although it will unlikely affect the outcome of the game.
