Dave Weinberg’s Steelers-Eagles 2-Minute Drill
Here is a quick look back at the Eagles 35-13 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday in Philadelphia.
Eagles' best number: 4 (Jalen Hurts touchdown passes)
Eagles' worst number: 3 (Steelers sacks)
View from my living room:
The Eagles had the second-best performance of the weekend. My 6-year-old grandson, Hampton, scored four goals in his Lower Township Rec League soccer game Saturday.
1. Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown (156 receiving yards, 3 TD receptions)
2. Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (285 passing yards, 4 TDs)
3. Eagles safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson (1 interception, 1 sack)
Eagles' best play
Hurts and Brown hooked up for the first of their three touchdowns on the opening series. Brown outwrestled Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick for a 39-yard TD.
Eagles' worst play
The Steelers executed a fake punt for a first down in the third quarter, the third time the Eagles have allowed one this season.
The Steelers tied the game at 7-7 in the first quarter. The Eagles answered on the next possession on Hurts' 29-yard TD to Brown to take control.
