Maybe this win will give Andy Reid some comfort tonight. Even when losing his son will continue to hurt him forever.
Reid helped guide his Philadelphia Eagles team to a 24-23 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, just two days after burying his oldest son. Reid returned to practice yester.
At the start of the game, there was a moment of silence observed. There were also GR sticks on the Eagles helmets.
But it was Alex Henery’s foot that won the game for the Birds. He kicked a 51-yard field goal with 12 seconds left for the win.
The Steelers took a 23-21 lead with 1:57 when Danny Hrapmann kicked a field goal. His field goal was from 43 yards out.
The Eagles took a 21-20 lead when Trent Edwards connected with Jamel Hamler for a 16-yard touchdown. Henery’s extra point was good.
In the third quarter, the Eagles scored on two touchdown passes from Nick Foles. Damaris Johnson caught a 70-yard pass, then minutes later, Mardy Gilyard added a 44-yard pass.
Steelers running back Chris Rainey added a 57-yard touchdown pass from Jerrod Johnson in the third.
In the first half, it was the Steelers control. Shaun Suisham connected on a 46 yard field goal in the first, and then a 31 yard field goal in the second. Byron Leftwich connected with Emmanuel Sanders for a 2-yard pass, as well.
