Everyone knows the Pittsburgh Steeler fans travel better than any NFL team outside of the Cowboys.
But the Texans are a real team now, we're told, and they certainly dominated the Steelers yesterday to a degree that the scoreboard doesn't indicate.
So why was Reliant Stadium feeling so much like Heinz Field South?
Some tweets about the game:
@E_Sanders88 SteeerNation is going to be full effect at Reliant. Can a Steeler fan in Houston get a RT?
@Nzingah: Steeler fans are out deep at Reliant.
@djriddler: Steeler fans by the droves piling into Reliant. @DJBonics @bdix73 It's gonna crazy today!

@Chris_Hill_ : Even worse than all the Steeler fans in Reliant, Dan Dierdorf on my TV.
@ ChrisYBaldwin: Is this Reliant or Heinz Field South? Tons of those yellow Terrible Towels in building. Lots of closet Steeler fans in Houston
@ dustinbennett76: Touchdown 14-0! Glad FOX26 wont show Cowboys game bc they play same time Texans do while Reliant is filled 1/3 with Steeler fans #ShowBoth!
@astockey: @Houston ... Early observations: Steeler Nation well represented @ Reliant. On field, Steelers very fortunate to be down only 10-0.
@SernaSays: I wanna slap the fuck out of every steeler fan in Reliant.
At least there was this, after the game:

@Hilton_boii: Just passed by reliant look like a lot of angry steeler fans still
People: This must end. If you're a Texan fan, show up. If you have to sell your ticket because of a death in the immediate family, check the accent on your buyer. One "yinz" and it's no sale.
