Cowboys top Steelers in overtime 27-24
Dez Bryant extended his touchdown streak to six games while playing with a broken left index finger, a 24-yard score that put Romo over 25,000 yards for his career and gave Dallas a 10-0 lead.
Roethlisberger pulled the Steelers even at 10 before halftime. He stepped away from pressure and used a couple of pump fakes to keep pass rushers away before finding Heath Miller wide open along the sideline on a 30-yard score.
‘‘We still have a chance to right our wrongs here with two games left,’’ Miller said. ‘‘We’re just going to keep chipping away at it.’’
NOTES: The first Dallas touchdown was the first scoring connection from Romo to Jason Witten this season. ... Steelers CB DeMarcus Van Dyke injured a shoulder on Pittsburgh’s first punt less than two minutes into the game and didn’t return. ... Dallas rookie TE James Hanna had two career catches for two key grabs on the Cowboys’ first touchdown drive. ... The Grambling State band spelled out ‘‘JB’’ in honor of Brown at halftime. ... Cowboys LB Ernie Sims sustained a concussion in the first half and didn’t return. ... Attendance was 95,595, a season high at Cowboys Stadium.
