The Steelers vs Cowboys live stream is scheduled to begin at 4:25 p.m. ET / 1:25 a.m. PT, Sunday, November 8. It's on CBS.

The Steelers vs Cowboys live stream is coming and Dallas fans better have found some way to enjoy their weekends before today. The 7-0 Steelers are the last remaining undefeated team of the season, and arrive as big scorers going against an opponent that's in shambles. 

The 2-6 Cowboys will be opening with their fourth starting quarterback of the season, and they are struggling with a general sense of disorder and poor motivation. Pittsburgh has been far from perfect this season, but it's still beating Dallas handily on key measures, and that's likely to continue during this NFL live stream.

The Steelers are currently favored by a huge 14 points. 

The Steelers are averaging about 30 points per game, vs 23 for Dallas. And the Cowboys are allowing a whopping 33.3 points per matchup, compared to just 20.3 for Pittsburgh. Overall season stats only tell so much of the story, though. The Cowboys performance has been trending down since the loss of starting quarterback Dak Prescott due to a compound ankle fracture and dislocation in week 5. With Prescott out for the season, the team's scoring has cratered under a succession of replacement quarterbacks.

First came Andy Dalton, who scored just one touchdown in two games--blowout losses to the Arizona Cardinals (a tough team) and Washington (not such a hard opponent). Then came Ben DiNucci, who struggled mightily against the Eagles. One try with DiNucci was enough for coach Mike McCarthy. But with Dalton on the Covid/reserve list, McCarthy has to reach even further down, likely to quarterback Cooper Rush as a starter. Given the struggling passing situation, targets like leading wide receiver Amari Cooper just haven't had much to work with. The Cowboys' ground game has been weaker of late, too, despite having a generally good rusher in Ezekiel Elliott.

The Steelers, in contrast, are having a stellar scoring game with Ben Roethlisberger. The QB has an impressive 15 touchdowns to his name already this season. And he has reliable targets such as lead receiver Chase Claypool. The Steelers are also mounting a solid defense--more than enough to hold back a dispirited Dallas.

Steelers vs Cowboys live streams in the US

In America, Steelers vs Cowboys is going to be broadcast on local CBS affiliates, which are included on most cable TV packages and available on one of our favorite streaming services: fuboTV. Game time is 4:25 p.m. ET / 1:25 a.m. PT on Sunday, November 8.

Sling TV, our other favorite live TV service, won't be enough to help, as its array of NFL game-hosting networks — FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network — lacks CBS and NFL RedZone.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $45 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $59.99 per month.
