Prescott over Romo for now; how far can Cowboys with rookie?

The Steelers lost their fourth game in a row on Sunday night, falling to the Dallas Cowboys in the final seconds of play by the final score of 35-30.

There is very little doubt that the Dallas Cowboys' 35-30 triumph in Pittsburgh late Sunday afternoon was the best game of the National Football League season thus far.

The Cowboys played this perfectly, and got lucky, but there is now no question that Dak Prescott is their starting quarterback.

"I guess we left them too much time", said Roethlisberger, who moved past Hall of Famers Johnny Unitas and Warren Moon and into 10th on the career passing touchdown list with 292. Owner Jerry Jones told reporters that Romo will backup Dak Prescott against the Baltimore Ravens.

With the victory on Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys have now matched the longest single-season win streak in club history.

"I expected it out of myself".

If you are on Twitter, just go search for "Elliott MVP". "I was put in a ideal situation". I don't know what's going on but we have to fix it.

The Cowboys opted to make Romo inactive for the ninth time in a row on Sunday.The 36-year-old Romo went through his third straight full practice last week after being a limited participant in practice over the previous two weeks. It was his most yards since November 9, 2014, when he caught six passes for 158 yards in a victory over Jacksonville in London.

He got the best of Shazier, his former Ohio State teammate, who couldn't catch Elliott on his 83-yard touchdown down the right sideline and got blocked out of the play by left tackle Tyron Smith that created the big hole on Elliott's final touchdown burst.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger: "We need to be more disciplined and more accountable".

Roethlisberger said he made the call, as the Cowboys "were reeling, we were moving them and wanted to take a shot at them".

Former Mississippi State standout and current Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott continues to find a new way to impress each week.

The Cowboys were aided by a face-mask penalty that would have given them a chance to win the game with a Dan Bailey field-goal attempt.

In a game that renewed a sporadic but real rivalry between two long-successful franchises that have met in three Super Bowls, the Steelers had four missed 2-point conversions that ended up proving costly.

"I don't know what happened", Shazier said. It'd be hard to imagine the Houston Texans earning a first-round bye, but they are just one game behind New England at 6-3. "He practiced all three days and ... was able to use every aspect of his leverage of everything he needs to make his throws".

From their very first touchdown, the Steelers attempted to take two points instead of kicking the PAT. "We're just going to sit here".
