Eagles vs. Steelers: Philadelphia blog reaction:

The Philadelphia Eagles won three of their first four games by two points or less, but Sunday they were on the wrong end of a close game, falling 16-14 to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Eagles could have pulled out a victory: Michael Vick fumbled twice, including once on the goal line, with the team eventually losing by less than a field goal, and allowed a late drive to bring the Steelers into position to win on a field goal with the clock expiring. However, Jason Brewer of Bleeding Green Nation put the loss into perspective.

Losing a close game where you weren't played off the field and proved that at least you're equal to the other team is tough to accept, but if we step back for a minute... this isn't the worst loss.

Last week, Philadelphia watched as Lawrence Tynes' 54-yard field goal attempt to give the New York Giants a victory as time expired came up a few feet short. Sunday, they were once again at the mercy of an opposing kicker, but Shaun Suisham's 34-yard game-winning attempt easily split the uprights. The similarities between this week and other games were not lost on Brewer.

Just like in those 3 wins the offense came alive in the 4th quarter and led a late go-ahead drive... and just like in those wins the Eagles defense needed to make a stop.

In the 3 wins they did, in this one they did not.
