Pittsburgh—Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers looked like the defending AFC champions. Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles looked like a team that needs a lot more time to prepare for the regular season. Big Ben tossed a pair of touchdown passes against a newly stocked Eagles secondary, leading Pittsburgh to a 24-14 victory. He finished the game 8 of 12 for 125 yards. His throwing scores went to Antonio Brown and Hines Ward.
For Vick, he was impressive in his only posession in the team's first preseason game against the Ravens. Thursday Night, Vick couldn't stop throwing the ball to the Men in Black, the Steelers. Vick threw three interceptions and made several poor decisions forcing passes into coverage. The Eagles go back to work and will expect a drastic improvment next week against the Cleveland Browns. You can see the game on FOX43 Thursday, August 25th at 7:30pm.
