In the 34-6 victory over the Houston Texans that raised the Steelers record to 12-3 and clinched a first-round bye in the playoffs, Hilton finished the game with six tackles, three sacks, and a forced fumble.

The Steelers will be without leading receiver Antonio Brown, who suffered a calf injury last week against the Patriots.

The Steelers led the Texans 27-0 going into the third quarter.

NOTES: Texans QB T.J. Yates cleared concussion protocol after being removed from the game late in the first half. They moved the ball easily all day and Ben Roethlisberger threw touchdown passes to Justin Hunter and JuJu Smith-Schuster during an efficient performance.

Former Clemson (and current Texans) WR DeAndre Hopkins may have just made the NFL's catch of the year, although it will unlikely affect the outcome of the game.

Talking to some of the fans before the game to see how much the Texans (4-10) poor performance this season caused their reason for getting tickets to this game, I found that it seemed for the local audience it played a part, but for numerous Steelers fans in from other states and even other countries, this game has been booked for a while.

It's Hopkins' 13th touchdown and he scored in all eight of the Texans' home games this season, which makes you wonder what kind of numbers he'd put up with a stable quarterback situation.
