NFL schedule 2012: Steelers go back on the road to face Dallas

Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

The Steelers are currently clinging to the final AFC wild card slot, and will go on the road to face a Dallas team also playing for its playoff life.

After losing 34-24 to San Diego last week, the Pittsburgh Steelers are currently clinging to the final wild card slot in the AFC. With three games remaining in the regular season, every game is crucial, beginning with the Steelers' trip to Dallas this week.

The 7-6 Steelers will face a 7-6 Cowboy team also trying to play their way into the playoffs. Dallas helped Pittsburgh by knocking off Cincinnati last week, but will pose a tough challenge for the Steelers. Dallas is currently eighth in the NFC thanks to tiebreakers, so a loss could effectively end its playoff hopes.

The Steelers will host Cincinnati next week, but before the Bengals head to Pittsburgh they will travel to Philadelphia to play the Eagles this week. The Bengals are 4-2 on the road this season and could move ahead of the Steelers in the playoff race with a win.
