Oh, wow. A bad day for the Steelers just got worse as the Texans blocked a field-goal attempt by Shaun Suisham heading into halftime.
The Steelers finally mounted their first real drive of the afternoon with halftime approaching, and ended up having to settle for a field goal attempt. After the Texans blocked it, Jonathan Joseph recovered and scampered into the end zone for what would have been a seriously deflating touchdown. Fortunately for the Steelers, it got called back on a silly illegal block by Danieal Manning, and time expired.
Still, the Steelers are in bad shape. They’re not playing well at all, and they head into halftime with a 10-point deficit. They haven’t been able to stop the Texans offense at all, and they also have barely even tried to establish the running game. They’re going to have to do a lot better in the second half if they’re going to have a chance in this one.
