Cowboys at Steelers Recap, Highlights, Final Score, More
- November 14, 2016

With enough time to stand in the pocket, Prescott has been able to establish himself as one of the NFL's most accurate downfield throwers. Eli Rogers is a nice complimentary player and had four catches for 42 yards and a touchdown, but he's not going to force an opposing defense to gameplan for him. (more...)
Cowboys rolling with Prescott as Romo heals
- November 14, 2016

Veteran tight end Jason Witten was the target of choice last week for Prescott, reeling in eight receptions for 134 yards and a touchdown. Losers of three in a row, the Steelers hit the halfway point of their schedule with a 4-4 record and tied for first place in the AFC North , and this game against the 7-1 Dallas Cowboys was shaping up to be more than just one of 16. (more...)
Elliott scores twice late, Cowboys top Steelers 35-30
- November 14, 2016

After the game, Steelers linebacker James Harrison put it best. They had allowed just one previously. Certainly not the way they're playing, particularly on defence. Bell stretched the ball into the end zone from 1 yard out with 7:51 left to give the Steelers a 24-23 advantage. The first play after the two minute warning, Elliott scored on a 14-yard rushing touchdown. (more...)

- November 14, 2016

The Bailey point after narrowed the Pittsburgh lead to 12-10 at the end of the first quarter. Pittsburgh certainly showed up with their "A-game" and moved the ball easily on their next possession, which resulted in a 5-yard touchdown pass to Eli Rogers on third down. (more...)
Elliott, Prescott Power Cowboys To 35-30 Win Over Steelers
- November 14, 2016

Going against a desperate Steelers team in Pittsburgh with a well-rested and healed Ben Roethlisberger will be the ultimate test. Drew Brees and the Saints are scoring 33 points per game at home, but they are 0-2 as Superdome favorites. The pressure will be on all afternoon and starting the game strong will be paramount. Even when Romo is healthy, the Cowboys should continue to start Prescott at quarterback. (more...)
Tony Romo willing to be Dak Prescott's backup when activated
- November 13, 2016

As the Cowboys prepared for a battle between two seismic National Football League franchises Sunday at Pittsburgh , the QB issue received even more intrigue when Dallas owner Jerry Jones said Romo may be active for this game and will upramp his workouts this week so as to be "ready to play at his top level". (more...)
Tony Romo Content With Being Backup Quarterback For Dallas Cowboys
- November 13, 2016

Coach Jason Garrett verified that whether Romo is active or plays is no longer a medical decision, making it the coach's call. "The first thing that stands out to me on tape is his decisiveness", Steelers CB Ross Cockrell said of Prescott. (more...)
Tony Romo Won't Be Active In Week 10 Despite Medical Clearance
- November 13, 2016

He completed five of six passes for 60 yards but suffered the compression fracture in his back on the third play from scrimmage against the Seattle Seahawks on August 25. Anytime Ryan Shazier is healthy, he's capable of making plays on the field. At 4-4 they are not leading the AFC North, but they are just a game behind the Baltimore Ravens. (more...)
Dallas can match franchise's longest win streak vs Steelers
- November 13, 2016

That didn't change his spot in the pecking order, which includes veteran Mark Sanchez , the backup to Prescott the first eight games. The Dallas Cowboys are easily the biggest surprise in the National Football League to date . SM: You can thank NFL Films for the nickname, but I get what you are saying. Garrett dodged questions whether there was still a medical component in the decision and what the coaches would need to see to determine whether to activate him on Sunday. (more...)
Cowboys QB Tony Romo questionable for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh
- November 13, 2016

We saw that past year, when Tony Romo's twice-fractured collarbone redefined Big D as Big Distress. He has not played in a regular-season game since last Thanksgiving. Dak Prescott continued to shine as he went 21-for-27 through the air for 247 yards and three touchdowns. Bryant was targeted four times Sunday. Against the Cowboys , the Steelers need Coates to be the player he was early in the season when he was catching more deep balls than anyone else in the NFL. (more...)
QB Romo practices but unlikely to be active Sunday
- November 12, 2016

Getting pressure on Ben Roethlisberger will be a priority for the Cowboys because they are expected to be without S Barry Church and CB Morris Claiborne . During cold and flu season, nobody wants the guy at the next desk coughing and sneezing all day. The NFL might as well admit it: The world, as Roger Goodell knows it, is going to pot! The Chargers and Dolphins share the same record, but San Diego is clearly the better team. (more...)
Cowboys vs. Steelers: What to expect when the Steelers are on offense
- November 12, 2016

It just may mean that rookie quarterbacks don't play great. However it just came down to which side made the bigger plays, and that turned out to be the Ravens as Pittsburgh were not able to record a point on the scoreboard for the first 51:22 of the game. (more...)
Tony Romo Unlikely To Be Active
- November 12, 2016

Since then, they've lost all three straight games with issues on offense, defense and special teams all influencing the streak. He returned last week after knee surgery on October 17 and was rusty at the beginning of a 21-14 loss to Baltimore. (more...)

- November 12, 2016

Romo went through his third straight full practice of the week on Friday after being a limited participant in practice over the last two weeks as he works his way back from a compression fracture in his back that occurred during an August 25 preseason game. (more...)
Prescott, red-hot Cowboys visit struggling Steelers
- November 12, 2016

Ironically, that's who Prescott will face this weekend. That was to be expected, of course, with 2015 being one of the best seasons from a Steelers receiver in history, but what is concerning is the low number of big plays from Brown. "The best teams in this league over time have been able to run the ball, control the line of scrimmage, and that's the kind of team we want to build". (more...)
Wallace's 95-yard TD reception sparks Ravens over Steelers
- November 10, 2016

Suggs is one of the few remaining stars in a rivalry that nearly always has playoff ramifications and occasionally extends into the postseason. Pittsburgh has looked every bit a Super Bowl contender in their four wins, but have looked like a team worthy of a top-three draft pick in their four losses. (more...)
What we learned from the Baltimore Ravens win over Pittsburgh
- November 10, 2016

After yesterday's 21-14 loss to the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium, there can be little argument that the Steelers now are a team living somewhere between in-a-slump and not-very-good, and while their first order of business has to be to get better in some of the many areas that now are killing them on any given Sunday, there also needs to be a sense of urgency because they're failing to position themselves for the final eight games of this regular season. (more...)
Ravens' win over Steelers keeps AFC North race wide open
- November 10, 2016

Suggs is one of the few remaining stars in a rivalry that nearly always has playoff ramifications and occasionally extends into the postseason. Roethlisberger was still feeling the after-effects of his surgery and/or had to shake off rust before finding a groove, Haley called a miserable game, and the AFC North is a great deal muddier than it appeared early in the season when Pittsburgh seemed on the brink of running away with it. (more...)
The Harrisons: Six NFL players who flopped in Week 9 The Harrisons: Six NFL players who flopped in Week 9
- November 10, 2016

Pitta had been an important part in the Ravens most recent Super Bowl run, and has great chemistry with Flacco who uses his big tight end as a safety net, so fans were psyched to see him back. The kids with the blue star on their helmets have played with poise. Teams are starting to get the best of Carson Wentz , while Philadelphia's defense has underperformed as of late. (more...)
