Steelers and Cowboys head to overtime

Dallas Cowboys' Romo directs the offense against Pittsburgh Steelers during their NFL football game in Arlington Reuters

It’s gonna take more than 60 minutes to settle things before the Steelers and Cowboys.

After a first half that saw the Cowboys control play but wind up tied because of a fumble, we had a second half that saw the Steelers in command until a fumble. Antonio Brown couldn’t hold onto the ball at the tail end of a good punt return and the Cowboys recovered to set up a DeMarco Murray touchdown that tied the game at 24. The Steelers looked set to break that tie after DeMarcus Ware was called for roughing Ben Roethlisberger to move the ball near midfield with a little more than a minute to play, but two straight Cowboys sacks halted Pittsburgh’s momentum.

Dwayne Harris returned the ensuing punt just past midfield, leaving the Cowboys in position to win the game before the end of regulation. Tony Romo couldn’t hook up with Jason Witten on third down, though, and the Cowboys punted. The Steelers opted to take a knee with 25 seconds left and the ball on their own 20 following a touchback.

It’s been a good game, a welcome occurrence on a day overflowing with one-sided blowouts. And we get a little bit more of it.

    And with that loss, the Steelers hand a playoff birth to the Ravens. You must be proud Pittsburgh.

    Three straight wins in December. I’m shocked.

    After all the posts on the ravens loss earlier(by steeler fans), I wonder what the posts will be on this story? Wouldn’t be so quick to dish it guys.

    Officials didn’t call a single penalty on the sloppy Steelers today. Not one. They called 8 on the Cowboys. At the start I was a little mad that Steeler fans had invaded but now I’m glad that there were so many of them there to watch BigBen single-handedly lose the game in person. Dez has now scored 27 TDs in 27 starts.

    It’s about time that its been the other team that gave away the game because of drop passes. It’s been Decembers to forget the past few years for us Cowboys fans and awesome to see other teams be sub par for a change. HOW BOUT THEM COWBOYS!
