While the Dallas Cowboys look to continue their playoff push, they might have to do it without their top offensive threat. The Pittsburgh Steelers have quarterback Ben Roethlisberger back, but need a win to hold on to their AFC wild-card spot. The Cowboys and Steelers will try to boost their postseason chances Sunday when they meet in Dallas. After a 20-19 victory at Cincinnati on Sunday that was its fourth win in five games, Dallas (7-6) is a game behind NFC East-leading New York and also one back of Chicago and Seattle in the wild-card race.

Dez Bryant Will Delay Surgery

After seeing two doctors and both advising Dez Bryant have surgery, Dez will look to delay the surgery to his index finger. If Dez can look catch and play in practice the Cowboys will clear him to play against the Steelers. To me, I think this is going to be more as a decoy, I’m not sure he’ll be as effective obviously. That being said, I look for Dwayne Harris and Cole Beasley...

Dez Bryant: “They’d have to break my leg to keep me out”
