Pittsburgh Steelers Notes

Bill Cowher is no longer 0-for-Texas. He beat Dallas for the first time, running his record against the Cowboys to 1-2. That leaves the Houston Texans as the only team in the NFL a Cowher team has not beaten. Houston is 1-0 against him.

There had to be 15,000 Steelers fans at Texas Stadium on Sunday, cheering on their team, booing the Cowboys and making noise when Dallas had the ball. They were twirling their Terrible Towels and had some of the Cowboys upset.

"I was shocked at how many there were," Dallas linebacker Dexter Coakley said.

WR Antwaan Randle El took his first snap from quarterback of the season and ran six yards with it. He still has not thrown a pass.

FB Dan Kreider touched the ball for the first time when he ran for five yards in the second quarter. He still does not have a pass reception.

NT Casey Hampton will go on injured reserve with a torn ligament in his right knee. The Steelers likely will sign Kendrick Clancy or Oliver Gibson to replace him on the roster and start backup Chris Hoke.

RB Duce Staley had his string of 100-yard games snapped at a career-high three, but his 93 yards on 18 carries gives him 582 yards rushing in six games and a 4.6-yard average per carry.

TE Jerame Tuman, who caught only one pass in his first five games, caught four on Sunday, including the game-winning touchdown as Steelers tight ends caught six passes, two more than they had entering their game in Dallas.
