Steelers Film Room: LeSean McCoy Touchdown Part Of Eagles Packaged Plays

When Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has his offense firing on all cylinders, it really is fun to watch.

Steelers vs Panthers Film Review: Defensive Third Down Struggles

02 September 2014

One of the biggest issues that haunted the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense a year ago—other than lack of a pass rush, the inability to create turnovers, and giving up an inordinate number of big plays, of course—was getting off the field on third downs.
