It has been an absolute pleasure to bring you this fascinating contest at Heinz Field tonight, I have been Andrew McDonnell, and I shall see you all next time.

Looking ahead to Week 11 in the NFL, the Cowboys return home as they welcome the Baltimore Ravens to the Cowboys Stadium, while the Steelers are on the road against the winless Cleveland Browns.

Elsewhere in the later kick-offs, Chandler Catanzaro kicked a game-winning field goal to help the Arizona Cardinals edge out the San Francisco 49ers 23-20. And the Miami Dolphins managed to see off a resilient San Diego Chargers side 31-24. Two games are still to be played in Week 10, shortly, the Seattle Seahawks will go head-to-head with the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium in a Super Bowl XLIX rematch, and on the Monday Night Football, the Cincinnati Bengals face the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.

Not to look past the Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger ended the game with an astonishing 408 passing yards and three touchdowns and still managed to finish on the losing team. Shades of Dan Marino at the end with the fake spike, followed by a touchdown pass to Antonio Brown, who was the only other player to know about the plans, ad the veteran had one of the best games of his career. Brown finished with 154 receiving yards and a touchdown in the game, while LeVeon Bell scored two touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving, 77 receiving yards and 54 rushing yards.

Looking back at the game now, what a special talent Ezekiel Elliott is, the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft has turned out to be a master stroke. He finished with 209 yards in the game, 114 rushing, 95 receiving and three touchdowns, including the game-winning one with nine seconds left on the clock. Dak Prescott finished with 319 passing yards and two touchdowns, and the final player of the unique trio, Dez Bryant, finished the game with 116 yards and a touchdown.

On the other hand, the loss for the Steelers keeps them in second place in the AFC North at 4-5, with Baltimore sitting top with a 5-4 record, but Pittsburgh will be going home tonight wondering how they have blown the lead inside the final 42 seconds of the game.

The win for Dallas asserts their dominance in the NFC East, they have won eight games in a row for the first time since 1977 and they top their division. The next team back are the New York Giants, who are 5-3 and have the Cincinnati Bengals on the Monday Night Football.

The Philadelphia Eagles have saw off the Atlanta Falcons 24-15 and the Washington Redskins have inflicted the fourth straight defeat on the Minnesota Vikings after Kirk Cousins led his side to a 26-20 victory.

Brock Osweiler and the Houston Texans have held off a late Jacksonville Jaguars comeback to win 24-21, while the Los Angeles Rams have edged out the New York Jets in a low-scoring game at MetLife Stadium.

Cairo Santos has kicked a field goal in the dying seconds and the Kansas City Chiefs have came from behind to beat the Carolina Panthers 20-17.

What a turn of events in New Orleans! Drew Brees leads his offence down the field and he throws a touchdown, and on the extra point, the Broncos special team step up, get the block and return it for two points and Denver have won it after recovering the onside kick, 25-23 the final score is.

We will be bringing you all the afternoon results before we get underway, and maybe even through the first quarter, and there are two other late games kicking off at the same time as this.

Tonight both sides will be paying tribute to the men and women who have fought in battle for their country, the Salute To Service is a great way for the NFL to show their respect to the armed forces.

Just hearing that quarterback Tony Romo is now listed as inactive for tonight's game. Bryant is out warming up as well as the likes of Terrance Williams and Ezekiel Elliott.

Four players are listed as out for Pittsburgh for the game later tonight; safety Jordan Dangerfield (groin), wide receivers Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) and Markus Wheaton (shoulder) and running back DeAngelo Williams (knee).

Looking at the Steelers' final injury report, they have three players with no game status listed; quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee), wide receiver Sammie Coates (finger) and centre Maurkice Pouncey (thumb).

This means that Romo is listed as questionable for the first time this season, instead of being completely ruled out. However, out of the seven questionable players, only the quarterback and Bryant were full participants in practice.

Listed as questionable on the Cowboys' final injury report are quarterback Tony Romo (back), wide receiver Dez Bryant (knee), offensive tackle Tyron Smith (back/hip), defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence (back/shoulder), offensive tackle Chaz Green (foot/back), offensive guard Ronald Leary (concussion) and defensive end Ryan Davis (hamstring).

We now have just under two hours until we are underway in Pittsburgh, we will be bringing you pre-match news in the build-up to kick-off.

That sets the tone for this huge clash in Heinz Field on Sunday, it is one of the later kick-offs in Week 10 and I'm sure many neautral NFL fans will be tuning into this one.

“It’s just something I try to live my life to every day: having fun but when it’s business, it’s strictly business.”

“I just believe in myself. I believe I get around people, I have fun, I show them the difference of having fun and then being locked in and handling your business. That allows people to gravitate toward you and know we can joke. We can joke, but as soon as it’s time for football we all lock in and get focused on our job.

“Always want to come in and be optimistic. Always with a smile on my face to show the people that need that energy that they can get it from me.

And now for some comments from the other side, the man of the moment Prescott talked to Dallas News ahead of the game on Sunday.

He added: “Everything we have done so far is behind us, good, bad, and indifferent. We are excited for the second half of the football season.”

“What a challenge this week is, one of, if not the best, teams in football coming to our place,” Roethlisberger told steelers.com. “November and December football is when it all counts and matters. You want to be playing your best football this time of year. If we want to be playing our best, we have to play the best. One of the best is coming in this week. I am excited for that challenge for all of us.”

Here are some pre-game comments from Steelers quarterback Roethlisberger as he looks ahead to the difficult game with the Cowboys.

Roethlisberger threw an interception on the second play of overtime and defensive back Brandon Carr returned it 36-yards to the Steelers' one-yard line. Romo took a knee the next play to set up Bailey, who made no mistake under pressure.

If the game in Heinz Field is anything like the last time these two sides met, then we are in for a treat. Dan Bailey kicked a 21-yard field goal 1:24 into overtime, and the Cowboys won 27-24 at the Cowboys Stadium.

This is the Cowboys' second road game in as many weeks, and after the game on Sunday, they return back home for back-to-back home games against the 5-4 Ravens and then the 4-3-1 Washington Redskins on the Thursday Night Football.

And that is the reason why Dallas lead the NFL for rushing yards, they average 165.2 per game, while they are third in yards per game as they average 411.5.

Elliott has 891 rushing yards so far this season and is averaging 111.4 yards per game and leads the league. The rookie has been electrifying thus far and doesn't look like slowing down anytime soon.

Dallas look a completely different side to the one that struggled last season. They have a quarterback who is calm and accurate, a running-back in Ezekiel Elliott that has played hard all season as well as Dez Bryant at wide-receiver, who needs no introduction.

However, despite the Cowboys currently being on a seven-game winning streak, thanks to the rookie, there are talks of Tony Romo replacing his the second he is fit again.

There is also talk of the quarterback in Dallas, but for completely the opposite reason because Dak Prescott, the rookie out of Mississippi State, has set the NFL alight with his vibrate displays this season.

Following the game on Sunday, Pittsburgh have two road games back-to-back, starting with the 0-10 Cleveland Browns and then the 4-5 Indianapolis Colts.

The Steelers are 8th in the NFL for passing yards per game, 264.4, while they sit 25th for rushing yards as they average just 96 yards per game.

Antonio Brown scored the only passing touchdown of the game, but it just wasn't enough and the Steelers need a big performance in their own back yard if they are to get the wheels back on their bandwagon.

Roethlisberger completed 23 of his 45 attempts last week and finished with 264 passing yards, one touchdown and one interception. The Steelers only put up 36 rushing yards all game, with LeVeon Bell struggling with 32 of them.

And you could see that in the defeat to Baltimore last week, however, a loss to Dallas and a win for the CIncinnati Bengals this weekend will see the Steelers move to third in their division.

Pittsburgh were tipped heavily at the start of the season, but injuries have played a big part in their loss of form recently. Ben Roethlisberger hasn't fully recovered from having surgery just a few weeks ago.

As for the Steelers, they come into the game with a point to prove. They sit second in the AFC North behind their bitter rivals, the Baltimore Ravens, after they were beaten last week by John Harbaugh's side.

We are now at the midpoint in the NFL now and things will begin to hot up as we take a step closer to the play-offs, especially with the Cowboys sitting comfortably at the top of the NFC East.
