The Philadelphia Eagles won convincingly over the Pittsburgh Steelers, 35-13.

The Steelers got things started quickly when Haason Reddick sacked Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett at the 18-yard line for a loss of 8 yards.

Jalen Hurts capitalized on the following possession, completing a 39-yard deep middle pass to A.J. Brown, capping off a 9-play, 68-yard drive.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were finally able to get on the scoreboard when they drove 75 yards in 13 plays following a delay of game penalty. After lining up for a field goal, the Steelers went for it on fourth-and-goal and Chase Claypool threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Derek Watt. The score gave the Steelers an early 7-0 lead with just over two minutes left in the first quarter.

The Steelers won the game for the first time at the stadium by scoring a touchdown in the third quarter. They left Philadelphia without scoring in their previous two visits to Lincoln Financial Field in 2008 and 2016, losing both games.

The Eagles lead again on the second quarter with a touchdown. With 12:53 left in the half, Hurts found Brown for a 27-yard pass into the end zone.

Darius Slay nearly had his fourth interception of the season with 7:47 left in the game. Unfortunately, he was unable to catch it, and Pickett’s pass intended for Diontae Johnson was not successful.

ANOTHER ONE! Brown was on FIRE in the first half. Hurts targeted him for a third touchdown and he completed the catch on an 29-yard pass. Lincoln Financial Field erupted with booing when they gave him a taunting penalty, but that didn’t slow him down. The Eagles increased their lead to 21-7.

Jordan Davis went down during a play in the final four minutes of the first half and had to be helped off the court. The team’s trainers guided him to the blue medical tent on the sideline before he went inside on a cart.

A little over 24 hours after he was signed to the Steelers’ practice squad, kicker Nick Sciba managed to score a field goal in Sunday’s game. The Jaguars were up by 13 points when Sciba’s 38-yard kick sailed through the uprights on the left side of their opponent’s end zone in Pittsburgh’s 20-7 victory.

A.J. Brown finished the game with an impressive 5 catches for 113 yards and three receiving touchdowns, which is the first time an eagle has had three touchdowns for 25+ yards.

The Eagles scored another touchdown in the 3rd quarter! Hurts completed a 34-yard pass to Zach Pascal, increasing the Eagles’ lead to 28-10.

Jordan Davis injury updates came from the Team Management , who was carted to the locker room in the first half. He will be out for the game due to an ankle injury.

The Steelers drove 64 yards to the Eagles’ 15-yard line, but Sciba’s defense held them from scoring, forcing a field goal attempt that the final score would reflect. The Steelers scored three points, but they’re still trailing 28-13.

The Eagles’ defense has been relentless all day – there were five sacks recorded.

The Quarterback Gardner Minshew saw his first game action of the season, entering the game in the final ten minutes. After he left the game, Hurts left with 285 yards and four passing touchdowns. The Eagles’ starters mostly exited the game after a hard week of playing Thursday night against Texans on November 14th.

Jack Gardner-Johnson intercepted a Pickett pass and advanced it to the Philadelphia 12-yard line with 4:27 left in the game.

The Eagles won the keystone showdown against the Cowboys with an impressive 7-0 record. They were first in franchise history to win 10 consecutive starts.

Look at the Eagles and Steelers’ matchup! Philadelphia is playing at home for the first time in two years against the Steelers. They’ve never lost to Pittsburgh at Lincoln Financial Field in the Super Bowl era, but now that Landry Jones will be under center, it might be a different story. Will their streak continue?
