Cowboys: What are the Chances...?

The Steelers are a three-point favorite over the Cowboys today. The key to the game for the Steelers ought to be the offensive line's ability to protect Big Ben from Demarcus Ware and Co. On defense, the big test will be keeping Cowboys' QB Tony Romo from making big plays in the passing game. Pressuring Romo will be important, but James Harrison & Co. will need to get Romo on the ground, as no one throws the ball better on the run than Romo, except perhaps a healthy Ben Roethlisberger. The cold, miserable weather favors the Steelers, and should help Pittsburgh escape with a narrow victory. All told, we estimate that the Steelers have a 55 percent chance of winning this matchup.
