Steelers rally to overwhelm sloppy Texans Ben Roethlisberger passed for two touchdowns and wide receiver Antonio Brown added another on a gadget play during a dizzying stretch late in the first half, helping the Steelers rally for a 30-23 win over the mistake-prone Texans on Monday.
Two late TDs get Stafford, Lions past Saints Matthew Stafford threw two touchdown passes in the final 3:38, including the winner to Corey Fuller with 1:48 remaining, and the Detroit Lions rallied for a 24-23 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
WR Charles Rogers and DC Dre' Bly are out with injuries, leaving Detroit with huge holes on each side of the ball. The ability of WR Tai Streets and DC Andre Goodman to step up, and the ability of the coaching staff to put them in a position to succeed, should play a big role in this game. Houston has yet to realize its offensive potential and looks to change that this week. Once the running game is established, expect QB David Carr to showcase his arm strength and take some shots downfield against the Lions' depleted secondary.
