Dallas welcomes back Dak Prescott after he missed most of the 2020 due to a broken ankle, although he will not play in this game. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh heads into what may or may not be Ben Roethlisberger’s final season. It’s never entirely clear what his future holds, but the team is trying to get at least one more playoff berth out of Roethlisberger.
The contest marks the NFL’s return to exhibition matchups after the league canceled the entire preseason slate last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic. And while there are plenty of reasons to tune in, don’t expect a significant amount of action for either team’s starters.
The Cowboys announced that 16 players – including quarterback Dak Prescott, wide receiver Amari Cooper, offensive tackle Tyron Smith, offensive guard Zack Martin and defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence will not travel with the team to Canton.
The Steelers, meanwhile, will not play quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, defensive end Cameron Heyward and cornerback Joe Haden, coach Mike Tomlin said. Running back Najee Harris, however, is expected to see action. Backup quarterback Mason Rudolph will start for Pittsburgh before giving way to Dwayne Haskins and Josh Dobbs.
The two franchises have combined to win 11 Super Bowls and 16 conference titles. They are also the only franchises that have met three times in the big game. Pittsburgh came out victorious in Super Bowls X and XIII, while Dallas extracted a measure of revenge in Super Bowl XXX. The Cowboys have been stuck on five Lombardi Trophies since that game, while the Steelers are hoping to make it back to the Super Bowl this season after a 10-year absence.
While Thursday night’s game is merely an exhibition, both teams are surely hoping to get their seasons off to a good start in front of a nationally televised audience. Before we preview Thursday’s game, here’s how to follow the action in real time.
