Why this game is intriguing: After dealing with tragedy before, during and after last week's game, the Dallas Cowboys return to mostly football this week. That's not to say the horrific car accident that ended the life of one teammate and changed the life of another is off their minds. But slowly, they will begin to move forward. What they have is a defense with depth issues and an offense that must find out if star receiver Dez Bryant can catch with a broken finger. While the Cowboys try to work all that out, they encounter a Pittsburgh Steelers team that has struggled recently, performed poorly on the road for much of the season and has a banged-up quarterback in Ben Roethlisberger who believes he's ready to play when evidence might be pointing the other way. Both teams have obstacles off the field and on. And both eye coveted playoff spots, trying to make it work somehow.
