Dez Bryant, questionable with a broken finger before the game came up big hauling in a touchdown pass and DeMarco Murray had a fourth quarter rushing touchdown to push the Cowboys into overtime.
In overtime, Brandon Carr broke on a sideline pass from Ben Roethlisberger intercepting the pass and ran it back to the 1 yard line.
Kicker Dan Bailey nailed a 21 yard field goal to send the Cowboys into a three way tie for first place in the NFC East. The Cowboys battled back from a 24-17 deficit midway through the 4th quarter hold the Steelers offense in check.
