Dallas Cowboys vs Pittsburgh Steelers
The Cowboys vs the Steelers is always a matchup to look forward too and has offered some great games in recent times. This year might be slightly different due to the struggles of the cowboys in recent weeks, and the incredible form of the Steelers.
The game will take place at the AT&T stadium where so many iconic Cowboys pictures have been taken in the past, but this time without the packed crowd that we are so used to seeing.
The Cowboys have lost 3 games in a row and are 2-6 for the season. A massive reason for this poor form is their inability to defend, having given up more than 30 points in 5 of their 8 games so far this season. Their early season form was rescued somewhat by Dak Prescott and the great offence they had put together, but Dak’s unfortunate leg break put an end to his season and even the offence has struggled in recent weeks.
To rub salt in the wound capable backup, Andy Dalton suffered a concussion on his first start of the season and has now been placed on the Covid/reserve and will miss the Steelers game. 3rd choice QB Ben DiNucci struggled to get anything going against the Eagles last week and it is confirmed that he will not take to the field again this week, and instead the Cowboys will use their 4th QB of the season. The signs for the Cowboys are not good.
In a complete contrast the Steelers, who have some of the best merchandise in the NFL including some incredible Steelers socks, are now the only team left in the NFL with a 100% record. Having come through two very hard matchups against the Titans and the Ravens in the last two games they will go into this matchup flying high with confidence.
This season the Steelers have looked like the ultimate rounded team. Their defense looks to be one of the best in the league, and the offence led by big Ben Roethlisberger has looked incredibly hard to stop. To round it all off they also seem to have that ability to grind difficult games out even when it looks like they are not going their way.
Sorry Cowboys fans, but in reality, this is only ever going one way. A rampant Steelers offense against a poor Cowboys defense, who simply do not have the ability to stop Big Ben racking up the yards and a solid Steelers defense against the Cowboy’s offensive line, who simply can not stop the pass rush and are protecting a 4th string QB. That all just screams a heavy Cowboys defeat, and it could all be over even before half time.
