When Eagles beat Steelers in Philly sports
Philly sports fans have a new favorite team to root for.
The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 26-23 on Sunday.
Drew Angerer/Getty Images Eagles fans will enjoy the victory in Philly with their favorite team.
The Eagles have won 11 straight regular season games dating back to last season.
This is the first time the Eagles have beaten a team that has won the NFC East and division titles since 2012.
This win is an accomplishment for the franchise and is not something the Eagles fans have been clamoring for.
The Steelers are 2-5 in the playoffs since 2012 and have not won the division since 2010.
The Eagles have a 4-4 record in the division and have lost four of their last six games.
After a rough start to the season, Pittsburgh has won six straight games and is currently tied for the NFC South lead with the Atlanta Falcons.
In the last seven games, the Eagles offense has scored 22 points or more, averaging more than 300 yards per game.
This victory will be exciting for the fans, but not the most important stat.
As you can see from the above stats, the team has the second-highest rushing defense in the NFL, according to ESPN Stats and Information.
This defense has given up a league-high 5.9 yards per carry.
