Steelers woes in Philly a long-term concern or just one of those games?

The debacle in Philadelphia.

Did the Steelers get exposed or was this just one those games a team will have?

That’s the million dollar question coming out of the Steelers 34-3 loss.

From the Offense, to the Defense, Special Teams, to Coaching, the Steelers graded out with an ‘F’ performance.

If the Eagles did anything for future Steeler opponents, it put out tape of a blueprint on how to defend the Steelers.

Philadelphia’s front four dominated the Steelers at the line of scrimmage. Pittsburgh believes it has the best offensive line in football on the right side and the Eagles got the upper hand in a big way.

Ben Roethlisberger (24/44, 257 yards – 1 INT) was sacked four times and lost a fumble.

While Roethlisberger was off with his throws for most of the day, what also played out was a lack of separation being created by Pittsburgh receivers.
