Cowboys And Steelers Exchange Touchdowns, Game Now Tied At 17

After both offenses opened the second half going three and out, the Dallas Cowboys opened their second possession of the half at their own 20-yard line. And thanks to an impressive 80-yard possession spanning nine plays and five minutes, the Dallas Cowboys broke the tie.

Tony Romo connected with Dez Bryant on his up and out route, scoring on the 24-yard touchdown to break the tie.

Cowboys lead 17-10.

But it didn't take long.

On second and 12 on Pittsburgh's ensuing possession from their own 38-yard line, Ben Roethlisberger launched a deep pass to a wide open Mike Wallace, completing the 60-yard reception at Dallas' two-yard line. An illegal substitution penalty later, Jonathan Dwyer powers the football into the endzone to tie the game at 17.
