In the NFL’s game of the week, the Steelers once again showed their toughness as they rallied for 17 points in the 4th quarter to achieve a 20-13 win over the reeling Cowboys. In the game, the Cowboys seemed to relax after stopping the Steelers on a 4th and 1 play.
Rallying behind tough quarterback Ben Roethlisberger – hit over and over as he threw 33 times – and their attacking defense, the Steelers showed they are ready for the playoffs. On the other side of the equation, you have to start to wonder after such a loss, if the Dallas Cowboys (8-5) are starting their end of season swoon again.
Quarterback Tony Romo still is having problems getting it done in December and January – now has a record of 4-8 in those months including two playoffs losses – and it showed as he threw three interceptions including the game-clincher to DeShea Townsend.
The Cowboys need to get some wins fast in the last three weeks of the season (Giants, Ravens, and @Eagles) or big changes will be coming soon in Big D.
