Data from SportsTradex.com indicates that today’s game is a virtual tossup. The market is showing the Cowboys have a 54% chance of winning. The Steelers have gone from a small favorite in the game to a small underdog on news that Dez Bryant will play.
With the Bengals win on Thursday (which was expected), the Steelers need to win today to remain tied for the 2nd wild card spot. While today’s game is important, it is not nearly as important as next week’s game. If the Steelers beat the Bengals next week at home, then all they need to do to make the playoffs is win today, beat the Browns, or have the Bengals lose Week 17 against Baltimore (the last scenario assumes the Jets lose at least one of their last 3 games). So while a win today is certainly helpful, it is not nearly as important as beating the Bengals next week.
