Pittsburgh Steelers @ Houston Texans Sun. Oct. 2, 2011 1 p.m. EST
Ever since the beginning of the season, the Houston Texans have been dealing with injury problems with Pro Bowl running back and last season’s leading rusher Arian Foster. With Foster having an ailing hamstring, the star running back hasn’t been able to get on the field and produce for the Texans, but Houston has been just fine without him as they have gotten off to a 2-1 start to the season.
In Week 4, the Houston Texans will be defending their home field against on their toughest teams on their schedule in the Pittsburgh Steelers. Fortunately for Houston, the Pittsburgh Steelers haven’t been playing up to their potential this season as they seem to be a shell of last season’s team that was able to make it all the way to the Super Bowl.
Despite not playing all that well in the first three weeks of the season, the Pittsburgh Steelers are still a very good football team and all they might need is one solid outing to get right back on track. With that being said, this week could be the week that Big Ben and company breakout of their funk, but I betting the Texans get the best of the Steelers in Week 4.
As of right now, the Houston Texans have been given the edge in this matchup with a -4 point spread. This spread is pretty solid in my opinion as I believe the Texans should get the win and cover the spread.
Take the Texans at -4
