The NFL wraps up Week 7 with a Monday Night Football contest featuring the Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Texans. The game kicks off at 5:30 p.m. PT on ESPN, and will be called by Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden and Lisa Salters. It is not the most inspiring of matchups, but it is one more day of football, so we've at least got that, I suppose.
The Steelers opened as a 4-point favorite, but the line has come down to anywhere from 2.5- to 3-points. I took the Steelers to cover in this one. I have them at -3.5, so I'm going to lead a little more than the current spread. This is kind of a meh matchup, without a ton of specific history between the two. I mostly just figured the Steelers would continue alternating their wins and losses, and handle their business at home. Of course, they could just as easily get pounded by what should be a decent offense for the Texans. We'll see.
Game time: 5:30 p.m. PT
Announcers: Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden, Lisa Salters
Odds: Steelers -3
