The Houston Texans and CJ Stroud are riding high after a tremendous performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road last weekend.

Houston beat the Jags by 20 points, and the offense looks to be improving after each game. And while Jacksonville is coming off a season where they won a playoff game, losing to Houston shouldn't come as much of a surprise.

They lost to the Texans last year with Davis Mills starting at quarterback, and only managed to score 6 points against Lovie Smith's defense.

This week, the Texans have TJ Watt and the Steelers coming to NRG, which could mean a long day for Houston's banged up offensive line.

However, with Kenny Pickett at quarterback for Pittsburgh, the Texans may not have to score a ton of points to come away with a victory.

Be sure to watch the video above as we give an early preview of Texans-Steelers, and share our predictions for the game.
