Steelers vs: Cowboys predictions: Experts split on winner

NFL experts are split on who they think will win the game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Dallas Cowboys.

USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers meet the Dallas Cowboys at Cowboys Stadium for a game that is a pivotal for both team's playoff chances. NFL experts are split on who they expect to win the matchup.

The three NFL experts at Yahoo! Sports are unsure who will win the game, with Jason Cole and Mike Silver predicting a Cowboys victory, and Les Carpenter predicting a Steelers victory.

ESPN is fairly evenly split on who they believe will win the game. ESPN has a panel of 12 people that predict the winners; five of them think that Dallas will win, while seven of them project a Pittsburgh victory. Chris Mortensen and Seth Wickersham, ESPN's two most accurate predictors so far this season, both expect the Cowboys to win.

The CBS experts, however, are almost unanimous in their belief that Pittsburgh will win. Seven of the eight CBS experts predict a Steelers victory, with Will Brinson as the sole CBS expert expecting the Cowboys to win.
