Eagles cruise past Steelers
Darren Sproles (#43)
Darren Sproles (#43) carried six times for 33 yards and a touchdown.
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles scored touchdowns in the first half and the Philadelphia Eagles grabbed a 31-21 preseason victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday.

McCoy caught a 22-yard score in the first half, but the team got a bit of a scare as he exited the game with a thumb injury. X-rays taken on the thumb, though, came back negative.

Nick Foles ran the first-team offense for the first half and led the team on three scoring drives, going 19-for-29 for 179 yards, one touchdown and one interception.  Full Story

By John McMullen, NFL Editor
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Bill Parcells gave his friend Mike Zimmer some ominous advice when the latter got the head coaching job of the Minnesota Vikings.

One of those "things" hit Mike Tomlin like a Brock Lesnar German suplex on Wednesday when his two top running backs -- Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount -- decided it was a prudent idea to bring some weed along for their ride to the airport in advance of Thursday's dress-rehearsal preseason game with the Philadelphia Eagles.  Full Story
