The Philadelphia Eagles won a tough, defensive game on Sunday at home versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Eagles improved their record to 2-1 with the victory. Kotite's Corner was live at Lincoln Financial Field for the big game to watch the Eagles defense put together one of the most dominating performances in a while. The Eagles won the game 15-6, as the defense held Pittsburgh to 2 field goals, while recording 9 sacks, 2 turnovers, and a safety. Brian Dawkins sealed the deal in the 4th quarter stripping the ball from Roethlisberger while diving, and also recovered the fumble himself. On offense, Donovan McNabb did well against a tough defense, and managed the game well in the 2nd half to ensure a victory. Correll Buckhalter scored the only touchdown of the game on a 20 yard reception early in the 2nd quarter. The touchdown pass to Buckhalter was the 176th of McNabb's career, passing Ron Jaworski into 1st place on the all-time Eagles record for touchdown passes. Hank Baskett caught numerous big catches, a lot for first downs. Brian Westbrook left the game with an ankle injury, which as of right now, does not seem too serious. Right now, they are reporting an ankle strain, and he could miss a couple weeks.
Either way, if you combine the Eagles offense in the game against the Cowboys, and the Eagles defense in this game, you are looking at one of the best teams in football, and a team that can go very deep into the playoffs. The Eagles come back next weekend with a game at Chicago on Sunday night.
