Eagles vs. Steelers: Full Highlights and Recap

Jesse ReedCorrespondent IOctober 7, 2012

The Pittsburgh Steelers held serve at home by a score of 16-14 over the Philadelphia Eagles thanks to a game-winning field goal by Shaun Suisham as time expired. 

Michael Vick's turnover-plagued season continued in this game, as he lost two fumbles in the contest. He put together an otherwise solid outing, throwing for 175 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions. 

Ben Roethlisberger had trouble connecting with his receivers all game long, completing just 21-of-37 passes for 207 yards with zero touchdowns and zero interceptions. 

Rashard Mendenhall showed up in a big way for the Steelers, rushing for 81 yards and the Steelers' sole touchdown of the game. He also pitched in 20 yards on two receptions, and he's the MVP of the day for the Steelers on offense. 

Larry Foote came up huge for the Steelers as well, hauling in both of Vick's fumbles. 

Perhaps the most telling stat of the game is that the Eagles were unable to sack Roethlisberger a single time. Even though Big Ben was unable to connect on any touchdown passes, he and his offense did just enough to keep Vick and his receivers off the field. 

The Eagles now drop to 3-2 and will host the Detroit Lions in Week 6. Meanwhile, the Steelers move up to 2-2 and will travel to face the Tennessee Titans on a short week on Thursday Night Football
