NFL Game Capsules - Preseason Week 4

THURSDAY, AUGUST 21

Final Score: Philadelphia 31, Pittsburgh 21

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. Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper were together on the field for the first time in the preseason and combined for nine catches for 68 yards as the Eagles won for the first time in the preseason after dropping their first two games. Ben Roethlisberger played into the third quarter and finished the game 15-for-24 for 157 yards, one touchdown and one interception for the Steelers, who are 1-2 on the preseason. The Pittsburgh running back tandem of Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount played and combined for 16 carries and 55 yards, along with four catches for 17 yards. Bell and Blount were arrested on Wednesday for marijuana possession, along with a female friend, after the car Bell was driving to the airport was pulled over and the officer smelled the scent of marijuana coming from the vehicle. Also, Bell was taken to a local hospital for a blood test to see if he was driving under the influence.
