Watch: Mike Hilton comes up clutch with Deshaun Watson interception

Steel City Underground will pick a play of the game from each side of the ball each week of the Steelers 2020 season. Stay tuned as we hand-select the very best from the black and gold!

As the Steelers traded punches with the Houston Texans, it was getting down to the wire. Big Ben and the offense bringing them back slowly. Early in the 4th, Deshaun Watson is driving down the field to potentially extend the Texans lead.  While the Steelers ball-hawking defense had yet to get a single turnover up to this point, one man answered the call. It could not come at a better time.

It’s 3rd and 15 on Pittsburgh’s 43-yard line. Watson takes the snap out of the shotgun. Both T.J. Watt and Ola Adeniyi rush off the edge and force Watson to roll out to the right. Watt, Wormely and Adeniyi are chasing down Watson as he throws across his body. T.J. Watt lays Watson out as he throws his pass intended for Kenny Stills. Right before Stills can make a play on the ball, Mike Hilton snags the pass right in front of him.

This interception would help set up Big Ben’s game-winning drive of 12 plays for 79 yards. The drive took a little over seven minutes off the clock playing into Pittsburgh’s favor. The Steelers would eventually bring home the win 28-21.

Mike Hilton had a spectacular day ending the day as the Steelers leading tackler at 7 with a single interception.

Even though the Steelers had a rough first half against the Texans, they made up for it by shutting them out in the second half. The Steelers defense came together and put a stop to the Texans offense.

Now sitting at 3-0 for the first time since 2010, the Steelers look forward to their week 4 matchup against the Tennessee Titans.
