Week 4 NFL Picks: Steelers Vs. Texans

The match up between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Texans on Sunday in Houston looks like a close match up, as the Texans are favored by only four points. The Steelers are coming off a close win on Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts while the Texans are coming off a wrenching late collapse against the New Orleans Saints.

Tim Sieck of SBNation Chicago likes the Texans to win by four.

This has the potential to be a very entertaining game. I like the Texans at home in a close one against the Steelers.

Peter Schrager of Fox Sports likes the Texans to cover, 31-26.

The way the Colts defensive line abused the Pittsburgh front five on Sunday night, I wouldn't be shocked if Steelers GM Kevin Colbert felt the urge to break out his old Rolodex and start calling up guys like Tunch Ilkin, Dermontti Dawson and John Jackson to see if they'd be interested in "you know, coming in for a workout, and giving it the ol' college try" this week.

Schrager has a point with the state of the Steelers offensive line, especially with two starters missing practice time this week.

At Yahoo! Sports, Jason Cole picks the Steelers while Les Carpenter and Yahoo! users pick the Texans.
