The big difference between the Steelers’ first and second half defense in Week 3

The Pittsburgh Steelers allowed the Houston Texans to score 3 touchdowns in the first half of their Week 3 matchup. Deshaun Watson completed 14 of his 18 passes for 202 yards and 2 touchdowns with 0 interceptions and 2 sacks in that half. The second half was a different story, Watson completed 5 of his 9 passes for 62 yards and 1 interception, with 3 sacks.

The number of pass attempts is a big deal, but while Watson attempted twice as many passes in the first half, he did so in only 2 more drives than he had in the second half.
