HOUSTON— Arian Foster rushed for 155 yards, including the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, and the defense harassed Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday in a 17-10 Texans win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“It’s good to see the pressure that we were putting on Roethlisberger, not giving him enough time to throw,” Texans owner Bob McNair said.

Roethlisberger was beaten up behind an offensive line missing two regular starters.

Roethlisberger hurt his left foot but stayed in, and he was wearing a walking boot when he left the stadium. He said he was injured on the second-to-last series when he was tackled from behind. Roethlisberger had an X-ray after the game but said he didn’t know the results.

He refused to blame the line for the problems Sunday.

“I’ve still got to make plays,” he said. “I’ve got to make it easier on my guys and I didn’t do that.”
