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.

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.

For the third consecutive game, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be without their star quarterback. At least it appears as if they'll have the quarterback of their defense and the reigning team MVP back on the field. Ben Roethlisberger will not play Sunday in Baltimore, meaning Charlie Batch will make his second consecutive start at quarterback for the Steelers (6-5), who have lost each of the first two games Roethlisberger missed. Unlike a defeat at home two weeks ago to the rival Ravens (9-2)

Lots of men coach youth football when their sons are part of the team. Herb Neilio Sr. was different. Mr. Neilio, 86, who died Tuesday, May 5, of complications from congestive heart failure, founded Westville's youth football program in 1955. His oldest son, Herb Jr., wasn't born until 1956. "He loved kids and he loved the game of football," Herb Neilio Jr. said of his father. "Put those two together and that's why he did it for so long. " Mr. Neilio coached Westville's football program for 52 years.

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.

Randy Cuthbert has deep ties to the Central Bucks West football program. He starred for the Bucks in the mid-1980s and later coached the team. Because of that, Cuthbert was taken aback when he learned late Thursday afternoon that reports of hazing by C.B. West players, including the grabbing of private parts, had ended his alma mater's season. "It's just a shame that things like that are going on," said Cuthbert, now the coach at Emmaus, near Allentown. "Times have changed. I'm not sure what's causing that kind of behavior.

By the time the second half of the Eagles' 31-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers started on Thursday night, Nick Foles was wearing a baseball cap and studying the game on a tablet. His evening was complete. It was the same for the rest of the starters. Coach Chip Kelly took his top players out after their two best quarters this month. Preseason games can be unconvincing and deceiving, but they provide glimpses on the way to the regular season. And the outlook of Eagles fans may have understandably improved from alarmed (after the preseason opener)

If the first two preseason games weren't enough to declare the Eagles defense a disaster in waiting, then Thursday night's steadier outing against the Pittsburgh Steelers wasn't enough to pronounce the unit cured of all its issues. But there has been one constant through the preseason, and that has been the performance of linebacker Mychal Kendricks. In the opener against the Bears, he had good coverage as a pass defender. A week later vs. the Patriots, he was a disruptive run stopper.

THE STORY has hung in the air so long, it has lost some lift. Not until Nick Foles sloshes through an entire early regular-season game the way he started last night's exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Steelers will doubts about his pedigree again be pushed back into our manic stratosphere. And then only if it is preceded by another bad game and followed by another bad one will the debate about what exactly we saw last season again gain traction. That hasn't happened this preseason, much to our collective relief.

Pittsburgh Central Catholic is 15-0, has outscored foes by a combined 664-82, has a defensive front seven allowing about 60 yards rushing per game, and has a pair of 1,000-yard rushers. The Vikings are indeed imposing. But St. Joseph's Prep coach Gabe Infante says he has no plan of using a David vs. Goliath approach to motivate his players for the PIAA Class AAAA state championship game. "We don't look it at that way," said Infante, taking a break Sunday from watching film of Central Catholic.

The NFL is still deciding what to do about Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, who appeared to impede Baltimore kick returner Jacoby Jones during the Ravens' 22-20 win over the Steelers on Thursday night. Tomlin said he was watching the play unfold on the Jumbotron and lost his "placement" on the field, causing Jones to veer to his right just before being tackled by Pittsburgh's Cortez Allen after a 73-yard return. But now there's some film-at-11 from Pittsburgh's KDKA-TV, released Monday, apparently showing Tomlin sidling over, taking a big step, and putting a foot on the field as Jones broke into the open, not moving until the return man is nearly on top of the coach.

As you might have heard, Sunday was a big day for the NFL's pass-catching corps, even those not nicknamed after Transformers. Expect some new nicknames to be coined for these guys: Cincinnati's Marvin Jones, who had 18 catches all last season, hauled in eight catches for 122 yards and scored four touchdowns in a 49-9 rout of the Jets. Bengals teammate A.J. Green turned his three catches into 115 yards. Green Bay is down to one healthy wideout, so the Packers are lucky that it's Jordy Nelson, who had seven catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns in a 44-31 win over Minnesota.
