Steelers vs. Cowboys Second Half Open Thread, game tied at 10

Tom Pennington

The Steelers are battling tough in Dallas, as both teams look to be pushing each other to the limit.

I had a chuckle over at the Cowboys site when they stated Tony Romo's superiority in terms of escaping a pass rush and making a play.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is just strong and people just can't take him down, they said.

Yeah. Watch that touchdown pass again. That may have been one of the best of his career.

An up and down first half highlighted by touchdowns from two great tight ends - Jason Witten and Heath Miller. Defenses are tight, with the Cowboys owning an edge in yards while the Steelers have the game's lone takeaway

Pittsburgh should be concerned with Dallas's rushing ability - they've gouged the Steelers and should probably expect that to come their way again as the Cowboys get the ball to start the half.

As for the rookie breakdown, Josh Victorian is hanging tough, getting picked on constantly. David DeCastro has looked outstanding in pass protection, and is quickly justifying his first round pick status.

This one's going to be a classic, so stay tuned, we'll be here for the rest of the game, with the As Of Now Unnamed Postgame Show and a full video recap coming after it.
