How do Nation! Welcome to the 3rd installment of the season. The Eagles and Steelers both have players missing and looks to even out. The big question of the day is the OL, will it protect Ben and keep him healthy? We all know my answer is no, but what is your answer, and why? As usual we hope for a solid game, and no major injuries to anyone on both teams. This is a game, someone has to win, someone has to lose.

CIN just scored...10-7 over Gmen

Howdy ho, Rick.... Since our game is a late one, I'm stuck watching the Bungles with Brenda... They are obviously thier usual selves... But not really "sucking" as bad as usual. But hey, it's still the first half! :twisted: .... Carson is having an issue with his previously broken nose... It won't stop bleeding.

Team Notes

Grounding The Eagles: The Steelers were able to knock off the previously undefeated Eagles in the last game between the teams in the regular season, a 27-3 Pittsburgh victory in 2004 at Heinz Field. The Steelers’ victory over Philadelphia marked the second straight win over an undefeated team with at least six wins, setting an NFL record. Pittsburgh beat New England the week prior. In the win over the Eagles in 2004, the Steelers controlled the ball for 41:49 and did not attempt a punt for the first time in team history. Pittsburgh’s defense was also dominant, holding Philadelphia to 113 total offensive yards (23 rushing) and 0-for-8 on third down.

Dominating The NFC: The Steelers have won 13 of their past 15 games (including the Super Bowl victory over Seattle) versus teams in the NFC, dating back to 2003. Their only setbacks were a 21-14 defeat to Arizona in Week 4 of 2007 and a 41-38 overtime setback to Atlanta Week 7 in 2006. The Steelers are 88-53-1 all-time against teams from the NFC, including a 50-18-1 record at home and a 33-34 mark on the road. Pittsburgh has eight straight wins versus NFC teams at home. The Steelers have not lost a game against an NFC opponent at home since a 33-21 defeat to St. Louis on Oct. 26, 2003.

Road Warriors: Pittsburgh continues to have great success playingaway from Heinz Field. Since the beginning of the 1998 season,the Steelers are tied with the Tennessee Titans and PhiladelphiaEagles for the third-best road winning percentage in the AFC

You'd think we could break a TE quick behind the blitzing LB's and could produce a long gain.

We have one throw to Heath so far.

I know some of you think I was nuts about our OL, but this is what happens when you have a suspect OL, they'll make a few plays, but generally the QB will get demolished.

PHI 31 yard FG is Good

EAGLES 10 STEELERS 3

At least they held em to 3. That is a point for our D.

Now it's time to see what Arians has in store. His play calling has got to adjust to counter this pressure.

We need a TD here before the half.
