However a terrible pass interference call on Darius Slay gave the Steelers a first and goal in side the Eagles 5 yard line. 3 plays later the Eagles would find themselves down 7-0 with a little more than a minute left. But the Eagles answered right back as the quarter expired with a 74 yard run by Miles Sanders. The score would be notched at 7 after one.
The Steelers answered right back at the beginning of the second quarter and took a 14-7 lead. It wouldn’t last long though as Sanders tied things back up with his second touchdown of the day. Pittsburgh was able to drive down the field on their next drive but Philadelphia held them to a field goal. The Birds would drive down the field as the half came to a close but ran out of time. Score at the end of the half Pittsburgh 17 Philadelphia 14
