Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Dallas Cowboys-Pittsburgh Steelers Week 10 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Dallas Cowboys (7-1) at (-2.5) Pittsburgh Steelers (4-4), Sunday, 4:25 p.m.
Mike: Steelers. I’m admittedly putting a lot of stock into the notion Ben Roethlisberger will look much more like himself this week, and if that’s the case, I think the Steelers have enough firepower to take advantage of a banged-up Dallas secondary.
Andre: Cowboys. Banged-up Dallas secondary? What is Mike thinking? Has he not seen Orlando Scandrick and Brandon Carr play? I don’t see why the Steelers are favored in this game. What do they have in their arsenal to stop Ezekiel Elliott? Nothing. Their 11 sacks also is the fewest in the NFL, meaning their their pass rush won’t do anything productive against the Dallas offensive line.
Ricky: Steelers. I’m still waiting for a letdown game from the ‘Boys. My guess is it comes this week, as Pittsburgh is in desperation mode after losing three straight. The Steelers’ offense started to make strides in the second half last week against the Ravens after three quarters of literally limping by behind a hobbled Roethlisberger.
