Texans vs. Steelers NFL Week 7, 2014: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming, radio, odds, announcers and more

The Steelers host the Houston Texans on ESPN's Monday Night Football with both teams sitting at 3-3 and in a critical game in terms of keeping chase in their division.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, losers of two of their last three games, return home to take on the Houston Texans on ESPN's Monday Night Football in Week 7.

Houston was an emerging team the last times these squads played each other. The Texans scored a big win in 2011, right around the point the Steelers began to descend from the contenders list in the AFC. Houston never did quite make it over the top, and sunk all the way to the league's worst record last year.

That netted them the top pick, which netted them defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, one of the best defensive prospects the league has seen in a while. They also have the league's best defensive player, DE J.J. Watt.

It's a tough match-up for the Steelers, and with Cincinnati floundering and Baltimore rising in the AFC North, they'll need a win to keep pace.
