Steelers @ Houston : Instant Analysis, fourth quarter

So, it seems, the third quarter was something of an illusion.

After dominating the third quarter of play the Steelers reverted to first half form, and Houston was able to do enough ~ including Adrian Foster's 42-yard touchdown run ~ to win the game.

In a game that was maddening, the most maddening aspect is that from the point at the beginning of the fourth quarter when the Steelers tied the game, the Texans gained 99 yards and scored the winning touchdown while the Pittsburgh offense gained a net 32 yards on 18 plays, not including punts.

So, with the game up for grabs Houston got the job done, and the Steelers were soundly thrashed.  A disappointing loss leaves the team and its fans wondering how in the world what will come next.
