Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Shaun Suisham kicked a 34-yard field goal as
time expired to lift the Pittsburgh Steelers over the Philadelphia Eagles,
16-14, in a close Week 5 intrastate battle.
The Steelers (2-2) welcomed back several injured starters Sunday, including
running back Rashard Mendenhall, who revitalized a stagnant running game and
finished with 101 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown.
Mendenhall picked up 31 yards on a game-winning drive that took up the final
6:33 after the Eagles had taken a one-point lead on Brent Celek's two-yard
Ben Roethlisberger finished with 207 yards on 21-of-37 passes for Pittsburgh,
which used an early bye week to get healthy and recover from a 34-31 loss to
the Raiders in Week 3.
LeSean McCoy, a University of Pittsburgh alum who played his collegiate home
games at Heinz Field, gained 80 yards from scrimmage and caught a touchdown
pass from Michael Vick, who lost two fumbles in the first half.
The Eagles (3-2) have dropped two of their last three after opening this
season with two wins.
