After the Pittsburgh Steelers’ tough matchup versus the Denver Broncos last Sunday, the Houston Texans come to Heinz Field for a 1:00PM matchup with the Steelers. Head coach Mike Tomlin opened up his weekly press conference talking injuries, specifically David DeCastro who is expected to “participate” this upcoming week. He mentioned other players have some bumps but nothing that should hinder them from playing this week. Tomlin recapped last week’s effort, letting it be known that penalties are the biggest takeaway to work on. In order to fix these struggles, officials will be brought in during practice to help on those issues. He described this as trying to change what they are doing rather than judging the calls and how they are made. He expects the “playoff perennial” Texans to come in with an urgency this week after starting the season 0-2, with losses coming to the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs. He described quarterback Deshaun Watson as an incredible challenge this week, emphasizing his ability to scramble and make plays happen, while they will need to try and neutralize JJ Watt on the other side of the ball.
