Le'Veon Bell (PIT): Joins DeMarco Murray as the only players with 100 yards from scrimmage in every game this season
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.
Houston Texans @HoustonTexans
Texans convert a fake punt. Alfred Blue takes the snap and picks up 7 yards.
The Steelers scored three touchdowns in a 1:13 span in the first half. The last team to score 3 TD that quickly? The Patriots on Thanksgiving in 2012 vs. the Jets -- the infamous "butt fumble" game.
With two touchdown passes Monday night, Ben Roethlisberger has at least 10 in each of his first 11 seasons. That ties Jim Kelly for the fourth most such seasons to start a career in NFL history.
WATCH: Those tricksters! On first-and-goal, Ben Roethlisberger pitches the ball to Antonio Brown, who throws the ball to Lance Moore for the touchdown.
Matt Williamson @WilliamsonNFL
Everyone in the press box has their jaw on the floor&what is going on here?
Make that 24 points in 2 minutes, 54 seconds as Le'Veon Bell catches a TD pass from Ben Roethlisberger.
Whatever can go wrong for the Texans has, as Brett Keisel grabs a bouncing ball out of the air for an interception, setting Pittsburgh up with 1st-and-goal with 53 seconds left in the half.

This might be the worst :35 of football played by any team all year
Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter
Worth repeating tonight what was tweeted last Monday: teams that score in final 2 minutes of half win 80 percent of games.
In a STUNNING turn of events, the Steelers take the lead on a toss-sweep, reverse-pass from WR Antonio Brown to Lance Moore.
Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell already has 89 yards receiving to go along with 19 on the ground, making him the first player in team history to top 100 yards from scrimmage in each of the first seven games of the season.

Houston may regret not burying Pittsburgh when they had the chance.
Welcome to the NFL Martavis Bryant! The Steelers' fourth-round pick drags his feet at the back of the end zone and hauls in his first career catch for a 35-yard TD, pulling the Steelers to within 13-10 of the Texans.
J.J. Watt is a BEAST!His 5th sack of the season.
Scott Brown @ScottBrown_ESPN
