Steelers Show the Cowboys Toughness in Week 14’s Feature Game

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.
