Epic Cowboys-Steelers Super Bowl Would Be Pick'em

If Super Bowl 51 featured the Cowboys and Steelers, the game would be a pick'em, according to one major sports book. It might also break the internet.

 

At 11-2, the Dallas Cowboys have clinched a playoff spot and are in the driver's seat for homefield advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.

At 8-5, the Pittsburgh Steelers have won four straight and hold a one-game lead over the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC South. While the Steelers likely won't get a top-two seed, Ben Roethlisberger and company have proven more than capable of winning on the road in the playoffs.

With the signature franchises on a possible collision course, sportsbooks are salivating over a Cowboys-Steelers matchup in Super Bowl 51.

According to BookMaker.eu, if the Cowboys and Steelers tangled for the fourth time in the Big Game, the line would be a pick'-em ?- both teams would have an equal chance of winning.

The Cowboys-Steelers rivalry is epic. And another Super Bowl featuring these two franchises would set the sports world on fire.

The Steelers have a 2-1 edge against the Cowboys in post-season meetings.

'Blitzburgh' won Super Bowl X 21-17 in a classic in which the Steelers rattled off 14 straight points and intercepted a Cowboys' pass in the end zone as the clicked ticked to zero.

Three years later, the Steelers won a 35-31 shootout. Dallas scored 14 points in the fourth quarter via Roger Staubach touchdown strikes, but it was too little, too late.

The Cowboys and Steelers last met in the Super Bowl in 1996. Dallas won the 30th Big Game 27-17 on two Larry Brown interceptions, turning both into scores.

Pittsburgh has six Super Bowl titles; Dallas is tied for second with five.

Pittsburgh last won it all in 2009; Dallas hasn't hoisted the Lombardi Trophy in 30 years. And fan bases for both teams are hungry to one-up the other.

The Cowboys and Steelers played a thriller Nov. 13 at Heinz Field. Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott scored twice in the final two minutes and quarterback Dak Prescott had 319 yards passing in the 35-30 win.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlsberger threw for over 400 yards, including faking a spike and hitting Antonio Brown for a touchdown with 42 seconds left.

If history is any indication, we could be in store for one heck of a Super Bowl on Feb. 5 in Houston.
