Steelers vs Eagles

The Steelers and Eagles went head to head on Sunday for the first time in four years. They only play once every four years because they’re in different Conferences. Pittsburgh looking to stay undefeated. The Eagles looking for just their second win, but coming off a victory. Over 5000 fans allowed to watch from Heinz Field. Chase Claypool opens the scoring in the first on an end around. It would be a big day for him, but the Eagles respond quick. On 3rd down, Penn State alum Miles Sanders gets the delayed hand-off, steps over a defender, and breaks to the outside. Good blocking down field and he would take it to the house. A 74 yard run, the longest of his young career. It’s 7 all. Second Quarter Ben Roethlisberger finds Claypool on the slant route. He does the rest for a 32 yard score. Steelers up 7, but the Eagles would tie it on another Sanders TD run. Its 17-14 Steelers just before the end of the half and the Eagles trying to tie it again. Carson Wentz goes deep to JJ Arcega Whiteside and he comes up with it. Eagles in field goal position, but with no timeouts the clock runs out on the Half. They don’t get to kick. That would be big later. Second Half now it looks like the Steelers are going to pull away. They go end around to Ray Ray McCloud and he takes off, splits defenders and is dragged down inside the five. Leading to another Claypool touchdown catch. Next drive Eagles looking to respond. Carson Wentz looking for Zach Ertz but he’s picked off by Steven Nelson. So the Steelers take over with great field position. James Connor would cash it in scoring from a yard out. Steelers up by 17, but this one isn’t over. Eagles battle back, drive down the field, and Carson Wentz floats one up to an open Greg Ward who holds on for 6. They would convert on a 2 point conversion cutting the Steelers lead to nine. Fourth quarter Eagles in the redzone again. Wentz finds Travis Fulgham over the middle its another score. Eagles down just two. Steelers with the ball back. Roethlisberger finds Eric Ebron, but he coughs up the ball after the catch. Crevon LeBlanc picks it up, and the Eagles now driving with a chance to take the lead. Third down Wentz looking for Fulgham, but its broken up by Joe Haden. So Eagles Kicker Jake Elliot comes out to try a 57 yarder. It would be the longest in the history of Heinz Field. The snap, the hold, the kick… and it’s just wide right. The Steelers looking to close the door. Roethlisberger finds Chase Claypool for a thirty five yard score, his fourth TD of the day. Steelers Win 38 to 29 and stay undefeated. The Eagles fall to 1-3-1 with a tough Ravens team coming to Philly next week.
