The Dallas Cowboys get their opportunity to defeat the undefeated when the Pittsburgh Steelers travel to their home field. The game starts at 4:25 PM ET on Sunday inside AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and will be televised on CBS for those in the viewing area.
The Cowboys and Steelers don’t have a lot of history between each other, only playing 32 games over the past 60 years. The Cowboys currently hold a 17-15 record against the Steelers, including wins in the past two games. Keep in mind, they haven’t played against each other since 2016.
In that 2016 matchup, the Cowboys won 35-30. They had Dak Prescott as their quarterback, who is currently out for the season with an injury. Meanwhile, the Steelers had Ben Roethlisberger as their quarterback, who remains under center for the Steelers four years later.
Pittsburgh Steelers Betting Preview: Can They Improve to 8-0?
The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently 7-0 and head into Week 9 as the only undefeated team left in the NFL. They’ve beaten the Giants, Broncos, Texans, Eagles, Browns, Titans, and most recently, the Ravens. The Cowboys are just another team they hope to add to that list.
The Steelers average an impressive 30.1 points per game, despite only putting up 350 yards per game. On defense, they only allow 20.3 points per game and 338 yards per game, including just 96 yards on the ground. Their balanced attack has been difficult for everyone this season.
Ben Roethlisberger is doing an excellent job taking care of the ball this year. He has just four interceptions through seven games, including 15 touchdowns and 1,628 yards. James Conner has also impressed with 498 yards and five touchdowns on the ground.
Dallas Cowboys Betting Preview: Will the Cowboys pull out an Upset?
The Dallas Cowboys had high hopes at the start of the season, but their plans were quickly derailed. Not only did they start the season off terribly, but they eventually lost their starting quarterback to a gruesome injury and their backup quarterback to a nasty hit.
So far this season, Dallas is averaging 23.3 points per game and 423 yards per game on offense. In their past three games, however, they’ve only scored around 7 points per game. Even worse, they’re allowing 33.3 points per game this season on defense, as well as giving up nearly 400 yards to opposing offenses.
The Cowboys need help all over the place. They look like the same Cowboys we’ve seen for years. An offense that moves the ball but doesn’t score. And a defense that gives up big play after big play. Facing Pittsburgh on Sunday won’t be fun for them.

Most people expected the Pittsburgh Steelers to be good this season, but no one expected them to be this good — especially when they faced a hot Titans team and dangerous Ravens’ team. Despite that, they’ve prevailed time and time again.
I don’t think Sunday will be any different for a Steelers team looking to improve to 8-0 on the season. It should be a rather easy day for them, especially with the Cowboys playing the way they’re playing right now.
Final Score 38-16, Pittsburgh Steelers.
