Steelers vs. Eagles: Philadelphia's Biggest Winners and Losers
Eric Hartline-US PRESSWIRE

It was a rough start for the Philadelphia Eagles. Their first-team offense had back-to-back three-and-outs, while the first-team defense struggled to get the Steelers offense off the field. To top it all off, Michael Vick left the game after hitting the thumb of his throwing hand on teammate Jason Kelce's helmet. X-rays were negative, but Vick isn't out of the woods yet.

Despite all of that, the Eagles still won the game 24-23 thanks to a game-winning 51-yard field goal by kicker Alex Henery with 12 seconds left. The pass rush was dominant all throughout the game, but it was the third-string offense, lead by quarterback Nick Foles, that brought the Eagles back in this game after falling behind 13-0 at halftime.
