Both the Steelers and Cowboys can’t afford to lose in week 15 if they want to keep their playoffs dreams alive as they clash in Cowboys stadium at 4:25 PM ET, this Sunday.
The Steelers dropped an inexplicable game against the Chargers last week, playing flat and uninspired.
“I have no clue (why we’re inconsistent),” Ben Roethlisberger said. “If I knew I don’t think we’d do it anymore. I thought we’d play better”.
“Those of us that have been around here we’ve got to find a way to pick it up and finish strong,” defensive end Brett Keisel said. “We’ve got to bounce back. We’ve got to respond from this performance”.
For Dallas, the situation remain on seeing if Dez Bryant will be able to performed like he has been doing the last few week. Bryant has caught seven of his nine touchdowns in the last five games, but he has broken finger.
“One of the things we know about Dez is he’s a tough guy, and he loves playing football,” coach Jason Garrett said. “He’s going to give himself and our team every chance possible to play in this ballgame and continue to play this season.”
Ben Roethlisberger has faced Dallas two times on his career; he won both, and the Steelers defense picked off Tony Romo three times in the 20-13 win at Heinz Field in 2008.
Pittsburgh is -1 point spread favorite for Sunday, but they are 3-8 ATS in its last 11 games on the road.
