NFL: Cowboys vs Steelers | 12.16.12 | 3:25 CT

COWBOYS (7-6) vs STEELERS (7-6)

This weeks match-up features one of the most storied legacy battles in the history of the NFL. The Cowboys and Steelers have met three times in the Superbowl, Cowboys winning the coveted XXX last. They have met 30 times, splitting the share of victory. They have both made 8 Superbowl appearances, the most among NFL teams, with the Steelers recently taking home a 6th Lombardi, leading the Cowboys by 1.

In their last 5 games, the Cowboys are 4-1, with their one loss by a touchdown. The Steelers are 2-3, with their two wins by a combined 6 points over Baltimore and KC.

Wrongfully sitting upon the bubble of playoff contention, the Cowboys will look to secure a wildcard spot and possible NFC East title as they play the Steelers at home. The Steelers have a strong fan base all over the country, so expect many fans to be at JerryWorld this Sunday, causing some sort of noise, but will it be enough to stop rodeo scrambling Romo and the many offensive weapons of the Cowboys? The 'boys defense will have to step it up this week, as they've been making fundamental mistakes throughout the season that they will have to tighten up in his stretch.

Cowboys are always listed first because in historical significance and literary aesthetics they are best read at the start

Here's a pro-tip, if you are going to try to talk shit...do not start said shit talking with "If they make the playoffs".

Nobody fears the Steelers. Besides the Colts, but they arent going to be playing each other in the 1st round, yknow, If the Steelers make the playoffs.

Actually these imaginary odds are pretty good considering the Cowboys should be about -1500 favorites give or take a few hundred in real life
