Steelers, Eagles vie for Keystone State supremacy

Steelers, Eagles vie for Keystone State supremacy

The fans will be raucous, the Eagles will be pumped up and gunning for the Steelers star quarterback. You weren't afraid to make mistakes. I'm sitting at an equally pretty 2-0 along with the Eagles.

Pennsylvania bragging rights - and a 3-0 start - will be on the line on Sunday at the Linc when the Eagles host the Pittsburgh Steelers. I think we have one of the best wide receiver groups. The Steelers rank 31st in the league in pass defense, but statistics can be deceiving. He has played 16 games just three times in 12 National Football League seasons, and said it's hard for a quarterback to find the balance between trying to make a play and surrendering for the next play.

Moats stressed "the secret is, there is no secret". Carson has the ability to extend plays with his legs.

The Steelers are evolving in defensive coordinator Keith Butler second's season on the job after replacing mentor Dick LeBeau.

"It's exceeded all my expectations - I'm having a ball", said Williams about signing a two-year, $4 million deal with Pittsburgh in 2015. When Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier intercepted Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins, he dropped into a zone, knowing he had safety-high help.

"This will be a good test for us", Pederson said.

All nine selectors on ESPN.com pick the Steelers to win the game. He said the Birds wanted to be sure he was physically OK in the first two weeks, so maybe week three is when we see more read-option stuff from the rookie. Then in week two, they took down divisional rival Cincinnati Bengals by a score of 24-16.

Call it the next step in the evolution of a defense searching for the proper balance between discipline and daring as Butler grows more comfortable with his personnel. "Think about the difference between your freshman and sophomore classes and your junior and senior classes".

Tesla files lawsuit to sell vehicles in MI
Tesla hopes to launch its Model 3 next year, a relatively affordable auto that gets more than 200 miles on a single charge. And while there was a chance Tesla might appeal the ruling, it instead sued the state of MI in federal court.


Details the Steelers are still ironing out.

Eagles: Out: TE Zach Ertz (ribs), CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring), OL Isaac Seumalo (pectoral).

In the season opener, defensive tackle Beau Allen lined up at fullback near the goal line and the team came out in a conventional offensive look with a running back in the backfield with Wentz. I believe so. What's amusing is if you poll a few Philly fans they have a tendency to say things like the Steelers are sort of a rival. Don't expect a lot of changes as Pittsburgh faces Wentz. Not so much anymore.

"So if you just add 37 yards and a touchdown for the first route "” a bad ball by Roethlisberger "” and, say, 25 yards for the second route, now all of the sudden Brown"™s day is six catches for 101 yards and a touchdown, and nobody (including him) is talking about him not being involved enough in the offense. "You've got to compete". "Then again, if confuse him with different looks, now he's anxious about trying to get hit and he's also thinking 'Where's the coverage at?' 'Where's my hot receiver?' It definitely needs to be a mix of both". "Those who are successful generally don't play like rookies". Heisman Trophy victor Troy Smith did it for Baltimore in 2007 and Brandon Weeden did it for the Browns in 2012.

For what it's worth, the Steelers won't be taking Wentz lightly.

Game-plan for Wentz: The rookie hasn't been rattled, so instead of just trying to blitz him, the Steelers should game plan against his strengths and weaknesses. "We're not worrying about if somebody is a rookie or not".

After Sunday, head coach Doug Pederson and his Eagles crew will have a bye week, with their next game being on the road against the Detroit Lions on October 9. Questionable: FB Roosevelt Nix (back), LG Ramon Foster (elbow).
