The Steelers got the win hosting the Philadelphia Eagles. The Steelers now sit at 4-0 at the top of the AFC North.
The Steelers are now 4-0 after beating the Philadelphia Eagles at Heinz Field. This is good news because the Black & Gold have had trouble with the Eagles in recent history. The Eagles are in a cluster of bad teams in the NFC East this year.
The home team got great help from Chase Claypool. He had four touchdowns on the day including one on an end-around run. He has really come into his own and I think he has earned his way onto the starting lineup.
The Steelers didn’t dominate, but they made the plays that they needed to for winning this game. I don’t expect the Steelers to dominate too many teams in the NFL even if they are struggling teams like the Eagles and the Texans.
This team is ahead of the Baltimore Ravens and that is saying something. They aren’t beating particularly difficult teams, but they are playing the situational football needed to be successful in the NFL.
This week against the Browns will be their first real test of the season. They will have to beat a team with a winning record. It will also be difficult because this is a team that is an AFC North opponent who knows them well.
Let’s take a look at five things that went right in their win against the Philadelphia Eagles.
