New England Patriots sign former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison

Mike Hilton and Cameron Heyward recorded multisack games and the Pittsburgh Steelers remained in the running for home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs by breezing to a 34-6 victory over the Houston Texans on Monday at NRG Stadium.

The Steelers (12-3) wrapped up their third AFC North title in four years earlier this month and secured a first-round bye by dominating Houston on Christmas night.

Harrison is a five-time Pro Bowler, two-time All-Pro linebacker and two-time Super Bowl champion.

Fullback Roosevelt NixThe season finale Sunday against 0-15 Cleveland, however, isn't meaningless.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison is signing with the New England Patriots, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

Fullback Roosevelt Nix scored a 1-yard touchdown on his first National Football League carry., and the passing game didn't skip a beat without injured wide receiver Antonio Brown.


Pittsburgh extended to a 10-0 lead when Roethlisberger connected with Hunter to cap a six-play, 54-yard march.

Roethlisberger went 20 of 29 for 226 yards, completing five passes to Bell for 28 yards and six to Smith-Schuster for 75 yards and a touchdown.

Bell had 69 yards rushing on 14 carries and added five catches for 28 yards.

Yates was sacked again on Houston's next possession and injured on the play.

It appears the Patriots are looking to add to their defense ahead of the final week of the regular season. Sean Spence and Stephon Tuitt recorded the other sacks. One of the few highlights came on an acrobatic 3-yard touchdown reception by DeAndre Hopkins in the fourth quarter. The Texans (4-11) lost their fifth game in a row.

Bryant caught a 12-yard pass on third-and-12, fighting for extra yardage and extending the ball for a first down. Houston got to the 1 on second down later in that drive, but couldn't do anything on the next two plays before Yates was intercepted in the end zone.
