Fourth quarter observations

15:00 -- We are to the part of the program where the numerical roster for both teams is going to come in handy. The Steelers start off the fourth quarter deep in Eagles territory after a turnover by the Birds near the end of the third.

13:17 -- The Steelers run a reverse to -- wait a minute, I know this guy -- ex-Eagle Jeremy Bloom. The play is stopped behind the line of scrimmage.

12:02 -- Jeff Reed converts a 24-yard field goal attempt, giving the Steelers a 13-10 lead.

11:49 -- A.J. Feeley and Ryan Moats are in the game for the Eagles. I feel like I am one of 10 people still watching, and the only who's sober.

8:10 -- It was tough to get a good feel on how the linebackers played tonight while watching the game on TV. Stewart Bradley said he "could have played better" in an interview with Dave Spadaro. I'll be interested to see what the beat guys have to say about Bradley and the linebackers tomorrow.

7:32 -- Jeff Reed hits another field goal, this one from 50 yards, to give the Steelers a 16-10 lead.

7:15 -- The Eagles' offense goes three-and-out. Feeley gets pounded for a sack on third down.

2:08 -- The Eagles' offense got another shot, faced a fourth-and-three, but decided to punt even though they are down by six. They have three timeouts remaining.

1:34 -- Gus Johnson just woke me up with his call on Quintin Demps' punt return. The Eagles' offense and Feeley get the ball at their own 46-yard line with 1:34 left down six.

0:00 -- Steelers 16, Eagles 10 is your final. Feeley and the offense drove to the Pittsburgh 20 but couldn't punch it in. Thanks for joining me, and be sure to check out for full coverage Saturday morning.
