The Dallas Cowboys will continue to find pay dirt on the gridiron because they continue to find pay dirt on draft day. Pittsburgh (4-4) is riding a three-game losing streak heading into the game. "We didn't make the plays when we needed to". The pressure will be on all afternoon and starting the game strong will be paramount.

Running back Le'Veon Bell is also bound to find a higher gear. "It's an appropriate response", Tomlin said. We have a number of guys who are injured on the team, and that's what we do.
