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.
