With the Texans coming off of a loss and the Steelers having quite a lackluster performance against the hapless Colts, this may seem an unlikely matchup for a possible conference championship. But, one week in the NFL does not a season make.
The Texans went toe-to-toe with a Super Bowl contender last week on the road at one of the toughest places to play in the entire league and almost came out with a victory. Meanwhile, the Steelers struggled once Indy made a quarterback change that they obviously hadn't game-planned for.
Those games aside, I still feel that come January we could be seeing a rematch of this Sunday's upcoming Texans and Steelers matchup at Reliant Stadium in Houston. Let's take a look at my reasoning.
