This is a big game for the Pittsburgh Steelers, whom I have been fading all year. They are coming off an embarrassing blowout loss to the Cleveland Browns and this once proud franchise needs a victory at home tonight to regain some of that pride. On the other side, the Houston Texans are coming off a tough home loss of their own, but were able to erase a massive deficit to make the final score at least somewhat respectable.

I was hoping to get a good spot for an upset pick here, given how badly the Steelers were destroyed by the Browns, but 54% of Yahoo Pick'em players went with the Steel City. I have to believe that's just a bunch of low information voters going with the team that won a Super Bowl five years ago and the pros in my pick'em league will all be pounding the Texans tonight. Hopefully that hope doesn't backfire on me with a J.J. Watt induced nightmare for Ben Roethlisberger. Prediction: Steelers 17, Texans 13.

Who do you have winning this game?
