The Pittsburgh Steelers come from 13-0 down to lead 24-13 at the break in their NFL clash against the Houston Texans at Heinz Field.

Two touchdowns in the final minute of the second quarter have handed the Pittsburgh Steelers a 24-13 lead at the break in their NFL clash against the Houston Texans.

The Texans started the game on the front foot as Ryan Fitzpatrick found rhythm in the first quarter, and he fired his side into the lead when he found running back Alfred Blue for an 11-yard touchdown.

The visitors then forced a turnover from Ben Roethlisberger as Whitney Mercilus sacked the quarterback and JJ Watt managed to fall on the loose ball. Bill O'Brien's side turned the fumble into three points from the boot of Randy Bullock.

Bullock and Shaun Suisham traded field goals at the start of the second quarter before Roethlisberger brought his side back into the match when he found Martavis Bryant in the endzone for the receiver's first NFL touchdown.

Just before break, Arian Foster fumbled the ball on his own three-yard line, and that allowed the Steelers to snatch the lead with a trick play. Roethlisberger handed the ball off to receiver Antonio Brown who fired into the endzone to Lance Moore, who made the grab for the score.

Matters got worse for the Texans in the final minute of the half when Fitzpatrick was intercepted by Brett Keisel. Roethlisberger punished the visitors with a touchdown strike to Le'Veon Bell.
