NFL Week 15 Free Pick: Take Pittsburgh. According to latest NFL trends, the Cowboys are 3-13 against the spread in their last 16 games following a win and 5-17 ATS in their last 22 home games. The Steelers are 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games after a loss. Pittsburgh is coming off a bad loss to the Chargers, so look for them to bounce back with Ben Roethlisberger a week healthier. Dallas has been on a nice run, but three of their last four wins have come against teams out of the playoff picture. The last time they met up with a physical football team at home, they lost to the Redskins. The Steelers have the poise the Cowboys tend to lack in these big games, so look for the Steelers to come out with the victory.
