FRISCO, TX — The Cowboys are the hottest team in the NFL, riding a seven-game win streak to the top of the NFC. Meanwhile, they head on the road to take on the slumping Pittsburgh Steelers who have dropped three in a row. So would it surprise you to find out that Vegas has the Steelers as 3 point favorites on Sunday?

Yeah, the Cowboys will be the underdog for the fourth time this year. The good news? They’re 3-0 so far when the oddsmakers say they should lose. So is Dallas letting that Vegas line enter their minds at all?

“Nope,” said Dez Bryant. “Because Vegas is not the Dallas Cowboys.

Yeah, as usual, the focus of this team is only on itself.

“We’re running our own show around here, you know,” Dez said. “We do what’s called, we got our own game plan and our own offense. We don’t worry about nobody else but us.”

“We have the approach we’ve had this season of recommitting and hey let’s not get ahead of ourselves, we know we have to go back to work,” said Jason Witten. “It’s just been a good formula for us and hopefully it will continue.”

Well, whether they care or not, Vegas does have the Steelers as favorites, so when the Boys get to Pittsburgh, they’re going to have to come in fighting like the underdog.
