(NEW YORK) — The Pittsburgh Steelers (7-6) will travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys (7-6). Both teams need the game in the worst way if they are going to remain in the playoff hunt.
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo knows the deal.
“We know this game is as big as last week,” said Romo. “It’s been like that for a while.”
Dallas tight end Jason Witten is preparing for the tough Steelers defense.
“Our backs still against the wall football wise,” said Witten. “We know we’re going to see a tough Pittsburgh team whose back is against the wall too.”
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger says his team has been there before.
“You’re going to start seeing different mindset mentality, that it’s that time of year,” said Roethlisberger. “In years past it just was a natural thing.”
