The Dallas Cowboys have won four out of five games and the Pittsburgh Steelers have lost three out of four. When the two teams meet up on Sunday, one will have a chance to greatly strengthen its chances at a berth in the NFL playoffs.
The Cowboys come into this one off a 20-19 win over the Cincinnati Bengals last week, where they scored the last 10 points of the game and won it on a field goal as time expired. Offensively, Dallas thrives through the air, ranking third in the NFL in passing yards per game. Tony Romo has thrown 349 completions for 3,928 yards and 20 touchdowns this season.
But as hot as the Cowboys are, the Steelers have struggled mightily over the last few weeks. Their most recent setback was at home last week against the San Diego Chargers. The good news for Pittsburgh, however, was that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was able to return from injury. He completed 22 passes and threw three touchdowns in the losing effort. Before last Sunday, he had not played since Nov. 12.
