Nick Foles and Philadelphia’s first-string raced out to a 17-0 halftime lead and the Eagles held on to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-21, Thursday at Lincoln Financial Field.

Foles finished 19/29 with 179 yards, one interception and one touchdown. The Eagles received a scare when All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy left the game with a right thumb injury following a 22-yard TD catch. X-Ray’s were negative but McCoy didn’t return.

Steelers running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount both played one day after each was arrested for marijuana offenses.

Bell finished with 23 yards on nine carries, while Blount ran for 32 yards on seven carries.
