PITTSBURGH - Through the season's first month, the Eagles fostered a mind-set that they could win games like the one they lost on Sunday. They witnessed Michael Vick overcome a collection of perplexing turnovers to engineer come-from-behind drives in the fourth quarter. They watched the defense hold firm in the final minutes and boasted about an intangible willpower to thrive on the narrow tightrope that often separates victory and defeat in the NFL. The Eagles fell off that high wire during Sunday's 16-14 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field.

Temple linebacker Tyler Matakevich was on the phone with NFL teams that were looking to sign him as a potential free agent after the seventh round of the draft. Then Matakevich got a call he said he had to take. It was from Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. "It caught me off guard, and then I saw on the TV that Pittsburgh was picking next," Matakevich said on Monday in a phone interview. Indeed, he was picked next, the 246th overall selection in a 253-player draft.

PITTSBURGH - In Philadelphia, where defense is worshipped and defensive coordinators can be lionized, performances like the one Jim Schwartz's unit displayed Thursday in a 17-0 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers could generate excitement. The Eagles defense has outpaced the offense throughout the summer, and Thursday was no different. The Eagles' hopes for a competitive team will likely depend on a defense that forced four first-half turnovers and kept Pittsburgh out of the end zone.

ACCORDING TO multiple reports, the cause of death of former Temple defensive end Adrian Robinson was suicide. Robinson, 25, died Saturday night in Philadelphia. He was the MAC defensive player of the year in 2009 and was one of the leaders in the turnaround of Temple's football program under coach Al Golden. His brother, Averee, is a rising junior nose tackle for the Owls. The Harrisburg native played in the NFL in 2012 as an undrafted free agent with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Flyers and Penguins will play outdoor games against each other in 2017 and 2019, a source close to the situation confirmed. "It's always fun games against Pittsburgh, and I know for a fact that fans love when we play Pittsburgh, so it's going to make it even more fun," captain Claude Giroux said. Next season's game will be played on Feb. 18 at Heinz Field, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers. It will help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Flyers and Penguins in the NHL. Penn State was explored as a possible site, but the cost was too high, the source said.

PITTSBURGH - Hard to say we learned a lot about the 2016 Eagles that we didn't already know, in Thursday night's 17-0 preseason victory over a group loosely representing the Pittsburgh Steelers. With Carson Wentz sitting out with a rib fracture, the focus was on starting quarterback Sam Bradford and his offensive line, suddenly threatened by the looming suspension of right tackle Lane Johnson. The conclusion there was "meh. " Not having Wentz to spice up the evening brought home how much this training camp and preseason have been about the second player taken in the draft, and how bland and tasteless the regular season might become if the rookie is buried on the bench, as currently is the plan of Eagles coach Doug Pederson.

A second former Eagles defensive tackle is joining the New York Giants. According to profootball.com, the Giants have signed Mike Patterson, who will join Cullen Jenkins on the Giants defensive line in 2013. Patterson was cut by the Eagles before the start of free agency on the same day that the team gave Jenkins his walking papers. Patterson played just five games for the Eagles in 2012 after preseason surgery to repair an arteriovenous malformation in his brain. That condition contributed to a seizure during training camp in 2011 that initially seemed to threaten his ability to continue his football career.

WHO WAS that guy? Someone from Villanova had just gone out for a pass in a game with Kentucky, caught the ball and scored a touchdown. The radio announcer broadcasting the game had no idea who it was. But 10 minutes later, after conducting a quick investigation, the announcer revealed that the mystery player was John J. Giordano, who, being a freshman, wasn't listed on the team roster. Back in Philly, John's family, listening to the game at the iconic family store in the Ninth Street Market, erupted in cheers.

Mayor-elect Jim Kenney met with Temple University officials Thursday and told them they must address the worries of neighbors before he can endorse the school's plan to build a football stadium on campus.

Mayor-elect Jim Kenney said Wednesday that he wants Temple University to try to strike a better deal for its use of Lincoln Financial Field before it considers building its own football stadium. Temple is interested in building a $100 million, 35,000-seat stadium in the northwest corner of its North Philadelphia campus, partly because of the price it pays to the Eagles to rent the Linc each year. On Tuesday, the school's board of trustees postponed plans to study building a stadium after Kenney expressed opposition to the plan.

PHOENIX - A little more than 2 months ago, LeGarrette Blount left the Pittsburgh Steelers' bench during a game at Tennessee, got dressed and headed for the team bus, apparently upset that he wasn't getting the ball. Blount's actions on Nov. 17 ultimately affected the playoff fortunes of two AFC contenders. The Steelers, who released the former Oregon star the next day, ended up losing a wild-card round playoff game to the Ravens in no small part because they didn't have a viable backup to injured running back Le'Veon Bell.
