The Houston Texans made mistakes in almost every area in Monday's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Whether it is turnovers, penalties or problems on defense, the Texans must limit these errors if they hope to bounce back from three straight losses on Sunday against Tennessee.

Coach Bill O'Brien is concerned about all the problems his team is having, but there are two areas that worry him the most.

"We've got to stop turning the ball over and I think probably the big thing to me is we've got to eliminate the line of scrimmage penalties," O'Brien said. "Those types of things we can control so we have to make sure that we're correcting that."

The Steelers scored three touchdowns in less than 90 seconds at the end of the first half to rally for a 30-23 win.
