Preseason action for the 3rd week. We finally will be able to see the top talent on the teams hanging out to the half and a few of the players into the 2nd half. This is the warmup for the regular season and we should see plenty of the guys rolling. The coaches have prepped for the game and we should see some fun action from the two teams.
Ben Roethlisberger may not have any runningbacks to work with in the game with LeVeon Bell getting arrested for a DUI and possession of marijuana. LeGarrette Blount was first reported to be part of the arrest, but last word had him traveling with the team to take part of the game.
The Steelers could also trot out Brett Kiesel and his beard onto the field for the first time this season. He was signed in the middle of the week and could get action.
The Philadelphia Eagles will try to get into rhythm in the first week with Nick Foles and his group of receivers. The Eagles have lost their first 2 preseason matches so far and will be looking for the defense to step up.
It should be fun to watch these two teams prep for the season.
Steelers 24 – Eagles 31
