Yes, it is already the fifteenth week of the NFL season and it is one of those years where fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to be sweating it out until the final snap. The playoffs are far from a sure thing and currently, they actually find themselves temporarily on the outside looking in after the Bengals’ throttling of the Eagles on Thursday night. The Steelers also will be squaring off against an NFC East foe and it’s a familiar one. It’s a rivalry that’s old enough to remember when calling the Dallas Cowboys “America’s Team” wasn’t a laughable statement. It’s not the Super Bowl but this one has playoff implications for both teams.
Steelers Offense vs. Cowboys Defense: You are rarely ever going to see the Steeler offense look as flat as it did last week against the Chargers. Ben Roethlisberger was making his return from a potentially life threatening injury and was still the only one that came to play. They have to come out with more energy and more focused today.

If Ben Roethlisberger can stand before the media and take the blame for a loss that clearly was not all on him then so can I. I can admit when I’m wrong and I owe many people an apology although I’m not going as far as some of you think.
I was tired of Bruce Arians’ offense. I was tired of bubble screens and seeing Roethlisberger on his back more than Joan Rivers awaiting another...
Some of you may have read that title and asked yourself: who? That’s exactly the problem the Steelers are facing heading into Sunday’s game. Two of the corners that will see the most playing time for the Steelers this weekend have played a total of one half of football for the team so far this season.
Josh Victorian was called up from the practice squad last week to give the...
The Dallas Cowboys will honor Jerry Brown Jr. on Sunday by wearing a special sticker on their helmets when they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers, NFL.com confirms Saturday.
The Dallas Morning News reported on Friday that the team sent in a request to the league asking for permission to honor the linebacker who tragically lost his life last Saturday in a fatal car accident.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are like a guy who eats at Primanti Bros. every day but doesn’t gain weight.
Despite losing four of their last five games, including Sunday’s 27-24 overtime defeat in Dallas, the Steelers (7-7) still will be in excellent shape for a playoff berth if they beat the Bengals and Browns in their final two games.
With those last two games at home, it wouldn’t...
Friends, family, teammates and members of the community filled a church to say goodbye to former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jerry Brown Jr.
He was remembered Saturday morning for his religious beliefs, sense of humor, physical presence and his lifelong desire to play in the NFL.
His casket was Cowboys grey with the team's star logo on the inside. His No. 53 Cowboys framed jersey...
Am I the only one that is wondering what in the world the Cowboys are thinking with Josh Brent on the sideline?— Boomer Esiason (@7BOOMERESIASON) December 16, 2012To answer Boomer’s question, no he is not.I completely understand the idea of forgive and forget, but Josh Brent being at the game had to have been a huge distraction. Brent is currently faces charges of intoxication...
Each week we pick a matchup where public opinion backs the wrong side of the ledger. This week, I’m picking the Cowboys for two reasons: Dez Bryant and Tony Romo. The duo have been unstoppable of late and while Pittsburgh boasts a strong pass defense and Bryant is dealing with a significant injury to his finger I think that the quarterback and receiver will continue to play at...
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders told Ken Laird of Trib Live Radio after the 27-24 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday that he suffered a cracked rib in the game, but hopes to be ready by next Sunday when the Cincinnati Bengals come to town.
"I’ve just got a cracked rib, said Sanders. "Those things should heal fast, so hopefully I’ll be back next...
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones can't help but think about the New York Giants going from 7-7 to a Super Bowl title last season.
Maybe Jones was a little giddy after the Cowboys beat Pittsburgh 27-24 in overtime Sunday for their third straight win.
Dallas is tied for first in the NFC East after winning three straight games and five of six. For the first time in weeks, the...
The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Dallas Cowboys will each be looking to stay above .500 and in the thick of the playoff hunt when they face off this...
Just eight days after being charged with intoxication manslaughter, an offense for which he could receive up to 20 years in prison, Josh Brent was on the Cowboys sidelines for their match-up with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The accident took the life of teammate Jerry Brown. At the time of the crash police say that Josh…
