Hopkins, who was closely covered by Steelers corner Joe Haden, then turned and tipped the ball with his right hand before turning back around and catching it with his left.

It was a complete win for the Steelers (12-3), who got big games from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, running back Le'Veon Bell, receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, cornerback Mike Hilton and defensive end Cam Heyward.

The Houston Texans and Pittsburgh Steelers suited up for a Christmas Day game that seemed to more likely to be at Heinz Field than NRG Stadium if you were looking at the crowd inside and outside the stadium.

The Texans will be hoping Deshaun Watson provides that next season while the Steelers are moving on to more immediate goals.

Roethlisberger threw passes to six players as Pittsburgh (12-3) romped over the lowly Texans (4-11) despite missing National Football League leading receiver Antonio Brown, who sat out with a calf injury.

Hopkins did not have a reception until the final play of the third quarter and finished with four catches for 65 yards.

The Houston Texans receiver made a stunning one-handed touchdown catch early in the fourth quarter of Monday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. If Pittsburgh can secure one of the top two seeds in the AFC, the team will lock up a bye during the wild-card round and get an extra week of rest before beginning its playoff run.
