• Jalen Hurts capitalized on the following possession, completing a 39-yard deep middle pass to A.J. Brown, capping of a 9-play, 68-yard drive.
•The Steelers followed suit in a 13-play 75-yard drive – Eagles' Brandon Graham received a delay of game penalty on fourth-and-goal and Pittsburgh decided to go for it after lining up for a field goal, leading the Steelers to their first points of the game.
