3 winners and 2 losers from Steelers preseason win vs Eagles
By Andrew Falce
With the Steelers posting the comeback, here are the teams’ winners and losers from their 24-16 win over the Eagles.
While it was a slow start for the Steelers, the team turned it on as the game went on and eventually posted the win. While the overall game has left players with a lot of praise, there were certainly some hard moments to get by. With the preseason games now halfway over and the starters returning to face the Lions, this game will likely have huge implications for the depth chart. That said, here are three winners and two losers from the Steelers win over the Eagles.
Steelers winner: Jordan Berry
Jordan Berry joins his competition, Pressley Harvin, as punters making the winners list. While his career with the team has been the definition of average, by all reports he has had a strong offseason. He is in a losing fight though, as if Harvin, their draft investment, continues playing well, Berry will likely be out the door. That said, Berry isn’t leaving without a fight.
He punted four times in the game and each one was one point. While Harvin was slightly better in the Hall of Fame game, it shouldn’t take away from the fact that Berry showed up this week. As a fan, this should thrill us. When Berry beat out Brad Wing for the punting spot a few years ago, he played well enough to get flipped for a seventh-round pick. Perhaps the team could do something similar with Berry if his offseason continues.
