Way back before the season started, we had no idea that we would be talking about the Dallas Cowboys as NFC leaders in the month of November. And yet, here they are, leading the division and the conference with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Even though the Steelers have their own issues that they need to fix, they are still a good football team, especially at home.
An injury bug has bitten Big Ben yet again. Him missing games or playing when he is not 100 percent ready is their biggest issue right now. So, with all that being said, should the Cowboys be favored to win a game at Heinz Field next week?
The answer is probably yes. The main reason for that is the fact that Big Ben is not at his best right now. His knee is a huge question mark, and we have seen that against the Ravens. Their offense and the talent that they have there is still great, so it’s going to be challenging for Dallas’ defense to slow them down.
On the other hand, the Steelers defense is unreliable. They have big problems with the coverage of tight ends, something that Cowboys should try to exploit with Jason Witten, especially because he is coming off a huge game in Cleveland.
Dallas just looks like a bit better all-around football team even with this Big Ben Roethlisberger on the field. It’s going to be really tough to pick the winner of this game, but we can easily call the Cowboys the favorites in this matchup. They deserve it, that is for sure.
