Four takeaways from the Texans' miserable 34-6 loss to the Steelers

Here are four takeaways from the Texans' miserable 34-6 loss to the Steelers 1. T.J. Yates is no Tom Savage -- As bad as Savage has been, Yates has been far from an upgrade. In the final box score, the former Tar Heel was an atrocious 7-of-16 for 83 yards a touchdown and an interception 2. The injuries never stop -- Both QBs were evaluated for concussions, but Yates returned. Clowney was hurt and came back, however with Taylor Heinicke and Dave Quessenberry making their debuts the Texans have now used more players than another team in the NFL this year 3. Bill O’Brien’s red zone offensive play calling needs help -- While it did not matter in the grand scheme of the blowout loss, O’Brien’s issues with the red zone offense have been a problem all year 4. Alfred Blue showed up big -- Despite the utter lack of any threat of the forward pass and a jumbled offensive line, Blue blazed for 108 yards on just 16 carries Houston hits the road to take on the Indianapolis Colts (3-12) to wrap up the 2017 regular season with kickoff slated for 12:00 p.m. CT
