Steelers vs. Cowboys reaction: Josh Victorian, wide receivers struggle

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

The Pittsburgh Steelers fell to the Dallas Cowboys in overtime on Sunday afternoon by a final score of 27-24. Neil Coolong identifies some of the players who struggled in the contest.

The Pittsburgh Steelers fell to the Dallas Cowboys in overtime on Sunday afternoon by a final score of 27-24. Pittsburgh now sits one game back of the Cincinnati Bengals for the final Wild Card playoff spot in the AFC and will likely need to win its final two games of the regular season to punch a ticket to the postseason.

In looking back on the team's loss against Dallas, Neil Coolong of SB Nation's Steelers' blog, Behind The Steel Curtain, identified the team's winners and losers in the contest.

Wide receiver Antonio Brown was one of the players who struggled. Coolong noted Brown's poor special teams performance, specifically on two punts in the fourth quarter, one of which directly led to Dallas tying the game at 24. Fellow wideout Emmanuel Sanders also had a bad game.

Defensive back Josh Victorian was mentioned due to his inability to record tackles and missing opportunities to make plays. The Cowboys exploited Victorian, who was forced into a key role due to injuries to the Pittsburgh secondary.
