A WILD onside kick bounces around for awhile, but the Steelers finally fall on it, and they'll survive for the 16th consecutive MNF home win.

Arian Foster's receiving TD was his 6th total TD on the season (five rushing). He scored just twice in eight games all of last season.

It's not over yet... Arian Foster scores a 1-yd TD on a pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick, pulling the Texans back within 7 with 1:31 left.

Make that a 14-point lead with 3 minutes to play for the Steelers after Shaun Suisham boots a 40-yard field goal.

It's been that kind of night for the Texans. At the end of a big gain, DeAndre Hopkins loses the ball and Troy Polamalu recovers, giving the Steelers possession leading by 11 with under 5 minutes left.

The Steelers instead settle for a field goal, a 30-yard boot from Shaun Suisham to put them up 27-16 with 5:50 left in the fourth quarter.

Oh so close. With a chance to ice the game, Antonio Brown's sweet 16-yard over-the-shoulder catch for a TD was overturned.

Steelers WR Antonio Brown has extended his NFL record streak. He's now at 23 consecutive games with at least 5 receptions and 50 yards.

How good is J.J. Watt? OK, a rhetorical question, but in the past three seasons, he has six games with a sack and fumble recovery -- twice as many as anyone else in the league.

WATCH: On fourth-and-first, Alfred Blue fakes the punt and runs up the middle for seven yards.

After the flurry of scoring to end the second quarter, neither team put points on the board in the third, and we head to the fourth quarter with the Steelers leading the Texans, 24-13.

It should also be noted that before this scoring flurry from the Steelers, they had scored two touchdowns on offense in the previous two games -- combined.
