The Cowboys mediocre season has cost them in the record books
"When the Steelers play on Sunday, they will tie the Dallas Cowboys for the most playoff games played in NFL history, a statistic that includes the pre-merger years before the Super Bowl era. Frankly, I have more sorting to do before I piece together records of the Super Bowl era alone for all teams, but it is a project I plan on undertaking this week.
The Steelers’ Divisional Round playoff game, as host, will be the 61st playoff game in their history (and the 60th of the Super Bowl era), which will tie with the Cowboys. Given that Dallas missed the postseason, the Steelers have golden opportunity of overtaking them for the most playoff games played, should they advance to the AFC Championship game.
Pittsburgh already has the most postseason victories in NFL history thanks to their 2-1 record a year ago, posting 36 wins. The Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers are both tied with 34, though in the case of the latter, that includes more than half a dozen victories prior to the Super Bowl era."
