The Steelers lost a lot of players to injury in the 34-3 loss to the Eagles but none were as serious as the shin injury that landed Lawrence Timmons in the hospital. Timmons was just one name on a long list of players injured during the brutal loss.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported that Ramon Foster, Robert Golden and Eli Rogers all left the game with injuries. Linebackers Jarvis Jones and Ryan Shazier left part of the game with injuries but returned for the rest of the fun.
Tomlin noted after the game that Timmons was on his way back from the hospital.
The 34-3 shellacking the Steelers suffered in Philadelphia on Sunday was the worst loss in Mike Tomlin’s career as head coach. The team has started off flat defensively, garnering only one sack through the first three games.
It’s bad but it’s not the end of anything. It’s only Week 3 and the best thing about this loss is that it’s an NFC loss and that the Bengals lost as well. The Ravens are 3-0 but they are playing like crap and still managing to win games. It will even out at some point.
There was a ton of hype building up to the game against the Eagles with the hot start that rookie quarterback Carson Wentz has had so far. Unfortunately for Pittsburgh Wentz lived up to the hype. He went 23 of 31 for 301 yards and two touchdowns and still has yet to give up an interception.
Best news out of this is the reminder that the Browns did, in fact, pass on drafting Wentz. So that’s a bonus for us.
