Steelers Tight Ends Poised To Feast On Eagles Defense In Week 5

Pittsburgh Steelers tight ends Eric Ebron and Vance McDonald have been fairly productive in the team’s first three games as they have combined to catch 14 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown. On Sunday at Heinz Field against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Steelers tight end duo figure to add to those statistical totals, and possibly quite considerably.

The Eagles defense has struggled against tight ends so far this season and with the unit losing starting linebacker T.J. Edwards to Reserve/Injured this past week with a hamstring injury, we could see quite a few favorable matchups for Ebron or McDonald or even both on Sunday at Heinz Field and especially on early run downs.
