The Philadelphia Eagles are taking their nice, shiny 3-1 record to Heinz Field where they’re sure to get a few ketchup stains on their uniforms. The Steelers are a hard team to figure out right now, but I certainly think they are a better team than their 1-2 record would seem to indicate.
For some reason, when I think of the Eagles facing the Steelers, I tend to think they’ve historically had a hard time beating them. I must have the memory of the 27-3 destruction in 2004 ingrained in my head.
However, that loss in 2004 was their only one against Pittsburgh in the last 15 years. The Eagles are 3-1 vs. the Steelers since 1997 and have a 47-27-3 record against them in the series history.
However, none of that means anything at this point in time.
Over the years, the Steelers have built themselves a reputation of being a blue-collar, nasty, physical team that will just punch you in the mouth and walk all over you. Their teams are known for excellent defense and a smash-mouth, run-...

The NFL has implemented a number of new rules over the past several seasons, most of which attempt to place an emphasis on player safety. If you watched Sunday’s game between the Eagles and Steelers, you may have found yourself thinking the league has to create a rule about throwing an opponent’s shoe. That’s right, a shoe-throwing regulation.
As you can see, Philadelphia...
Obviously, whether or not Michael Vick is currently a dog owner would certainly cause a fair share of discussion. And if it were true, Vick would be on the receiving end of endless criticism and even absolute condemnation from individuals fervently against the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback ever being responsible for the care of another dog in light [...]
Dallas Reynolds entered training camp knowing it was now or never for his NFL career.
For three seasons, Reynolds didn't see game action with the Philadelphia Eagles. The center spent almost all of that time on Philadelphia's practice squad after repeatedly passing through waivers.
Having used all of his practice squad eligibility under league rules, Reynolds faced three...
Ben Roethlisberger getting sucked into the ground? I don’t mind.
If it were to happen, the Eagles would of course wind up safely where Hines Ward lands in the clip.
A girl can dream.

PITTSBURGH -- At some point, the Philadelphia Eagles' high-wire act to start the season was going to come crashing down. It was only fitting that it came at the hands of another comeback artist. Ben Roethlisberger engineered a game-winning drive that ended with Shaun Suisham's 34-yard field goal as time expired, and the Steelers edged the Eagles 16-14 Sunday at Heinz Field...
I know most pundits will be talking about the key fumbles committed by Michael Vick that took big points off the board...and yeah, maybe the Eagles should have proven they are better and tougher than the Steelers except for their failure to hold on to the ball in scoring situations.
But my main criticism will be focused on the disconnect between the linebackers of the Eagles...
Preparing for the Pittsburgh Steelers the Eagles have the ability and TAPE to be ready for the challenge. The Eagles have seen as recently as the Arizona game what waits for them in Pittsburgh. Ray Horton Arizona Defensive Coordinator a Steelers alum and Dick LeBeau graduate, ran a very similar defense to what the Eagles will see this week. Blitz’s, blitz’s and more blitz’s...
The Eagles and Steelers could play the cleanest second half in the history of football and their game might still be the herpiest, derpiest, doopiest game of this season. Michael Vick has fumbled twice and had a third overturned by replay. The Steelers have fumbled two snaps. Jerricho Cotchery would have scored a touchdown before half but he tripped on the Heinz Field slush turf...
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu left Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles in the first quarter after aggravating his strained right calf.
Polamalu limped off the field following a fumble by Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick. The team said Polamalu's return was questionable, but the 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year watched the entire second quarter...
The Steelers were excited to get back a pair of star defenders today against their in-state rival, the Philadelphia Eagles. James Harrison has looked like his old self, flying around the field. On the other hand, Troy Polamalu's day came to an abrupt end.
Near the end of the first quarter, Polamalu re-aggravated his right calf on a play that Michael Vick fumbled the ball...

I talked all week about how I thought the Pittsburgh Steelers should have success running the ball up the middle against the Philadelphia Eagles and that is exactly where the running backs had their success Sunday in the 16-14 win at Heinz Field.
The running game of course was sparked by the return of Rashard Mendenhall, who was seeing his first game action since tearing the ACL...
According to ESPN’s John Clayton, Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu left today’s game against the Eagles with a calf injury.
Polamalu already missed the past couple of games because of the same calf injury.
