The Dallas Cowboys ride through Pittsburgh with guns blazing when they meet the Steelers on Sunday, November 13th for a showdown at Heinz Field. Below are the odds for fans who bet on NFL:
Cowboys +2 (-105) 49½ (-115)
Steelers -2 (-115) 49½ (-105)
The Cowboys (7-1) cashed in their coupon for a free win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Dallas QB Dak Prescott could not be doing a better job of erasing the memory of Tony Romo if he traveled back in time and prevented Ramiro from meeting Joan. The rookie finished 21 of 27 for 247 yards with three TDs to lead the Cowboys 35-10 against the Browns. Prescott has won seven starts in a row and broke Troy Aikman rookie TDs and completions records with Dallas. Fellow rookie Ezekiel Elliott ran for 92 yards on 18 carries for an additional two scores.
The Steelers (4-4) have lost three games straight, most recently 14-21 against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Returning QB Ben Roethlisberger could not get things going until a 75-yard drive that got the Steelers within 21-7 with 8:38 left. Big Ben threw 23 of 45 for 264 yards with one TD pass to wide receiver Antonio Brown, and ran for three yards on three carries with another score. Pittsburgh only put up 36 running yards.
