PRESEASON – GAME 1
STEELERS 31 – EAGLES 14
It’s nice to see Boz breakout in this inaugural exhibition game, going 3-3 in FGs and 2-2 in XPs.
Other than that, we saw some of the same flaws on defense that we hoped had been addressed, realizing that we didn’t uncover the second coming of Ryan Shazier through free agency. There were some disturbing gashes against the d-line, especially after Jordan Berry (with and assist by Marcus Tucker) buried the Eagles at their 1 1/2 yard line, when Jay Ajayi broke outside for 22 yards. There were several other lapses that have us crossing our fingers for an uptick in run coverage in the coming weeks.
There were several spectacular plays to keep us hopeful about the offense, especially JuJu’s high-point over Rasul Douglas for a 71 yard TD reception!
Damoun Patterson made his case on a great grab of a pass from Joshua Dobbs in the end zone for a 29 yard TD. Mason Rudolph hooked up with fellow Oklahoma State alum James Washington for 35 yards.
