The Steelers opened their preseason schedule on a high note with a 31-14 win over the Super Bowl Champion Eagles in Philadelphia last night. Of course, these games don’t register in the regular season standings, but what happens during these contests is paramount in shaping the team.

Grading games like this is an extremely difficult task. Four quarters of work is hardly enough to tell the story, but it’s a start.
