As they had done against the Ravens, the Steelers rallied to beat the Cowboys.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s 8-yard touchdown pass to tight end Eric Ebron with 2:14 left in regulation provided the Steelers’ first lead and they hung on for a 24-19 victory.
“I’m not taking any shots at anybody, but if you didn’t know who America’s team was, you should have seen the stands and all of the Terrible Towels. Dallas may be America’s team but we will be the World’s team because we have fans everywhere & they are the best in the world.” — Ben, post-game.
Pittsburgh is 8-0 for the first time in the storied franchise’s history despite an upset bid from the Cowboys, who were the biggest underdogs they’ve been at home in at least 31 years.
