Dallas and Pittsburgh went into the locker room at halftime deadlocked at 10-10, and neither team has been able to separate itself. The Cowboys took a 17-10 lead on a 24-yard pass from Tony Romo to Dez Bryant with 6:03 remaining in the third, but the Steelers answered on their next drive, as Jonathan Dwyer found the end zone from 2 yards out at the 4:16 mark.

Romo has been excellent for the Cowboys (7-6), completing 22 of 27 passes for 268 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. Miles Austin has 79 yards on seven catches, and DeMarco Murray has rushed 12 times for 76 yards.

Ben Roethlisberger is 15 of 28 for 243 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions for the Steelers (7-6). Tight end Heath Miller has six catches for 85 yards and a score, and Isaac Redman leads Pittsburgh in rushing with two carries for 26 yards.
