The Steelers for the most part played a solid game tonight in Philadelphia, but in the end they lost the game 24-23 with a last minute drive by Philly.
The big news was the fact the first unit dominated the Eagles, and led the game 13-0 at the half. The offense was solid, getting back to running the ball quite a bit, and I thought the defense showed up as well.
While the team lost, nothing to be worried about, as they lost in the last minute, and while Mike Tomlin is going to huff and puff about a bad loss, it really wasn’t.
Some of the concerns were the injuries, one to first-year tackle Mike Adams, who was easily beat up all night and gave up 2.5 sacks in the first quarter. He left with a knee injury. FB David Johnson also left the game with a knee injury, and Jonathan Dwyer with a shoulder injury.
