What was it that earned Manning the punitive yellow fabric? Well, he apparently felt like kicker Shaun Suisham(notes) was a threat to chase down cornerback Johnathan Joseph(notes). So he blocked Suisham in the back.
And that's how you make seven points disappear. You act like the athleticism of Shaun Suisham is something that needs to be addressed.
The penalty was part of a Texans first-half effort that looked pretty good, but somehow only staked them to a 10-point halftime lead. The Steelers hung around, made some plays in the second half, and had a chance to tie the game on the final drive.
They didn't, though, because the Texans now have a defense with enough backbone to overcome mistakes like this. Tremendous win for the Texans.
