Ben Roethlisberger trolled the Cowboys after keeping his Steelers undefeated in 2020.
The rushing attack was nonexistent so Roethlisberger embarked on a six-play, 79-yard drive to give the Steelers a 24-19 lead late in the fourth quarter. The defense held and the Steelers handed the Cowboys one L on the day. A second came following the game courtesy of the winning quarterback. This one cuts deep.

Roethlisberger may have a point because it was a pro-Steelers crowd, even with limited capacity. That had to infuriate Jerry Jones and the Steelers, but it is the reality of how popular the Steelers are in America, and as Roethlisberger says, in the world.
The title of “America’s Team” for the Cowboys can be a punchline depending on the state of the team. A 2-7 record applies, but the team did show plenty of fight against arguably the best team in football so far this season.
The Steelers are now 8-0 and have games against the Cincinnati Bengals and Jacksonville Jaguars coming up on the schedule. A 10-0 record is entirely possible heading into a Week 12 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens on Thanksgiving night.
Seeing the support at road venues during the COVID-19 pandemic lends itself to calling the Steelers “America’s Team.” But if the Cowboys will never relinquish that title, Roethlisberger may have coined a new term for Steelers fans to use on signs and in hashtags.
