Steelers Ground The Eagles; Now 4-0 Thanks to Chase Claypool

The Pittsburgh Steelers defeat the Philadelphia Eagles, 38-29 largely due to Steeler rookie wide receiver Chase Claypool.

The Steelers grounded the Eagles in their week five-game, propelling the team to be 4-0, in a four-week win streak. This game marks the first time Steelers fans were allowed to attend a Steelers game since COVID-19 forced many facilities to not allow fan attendance.

Ben “Big Ben” Roethlisberger again showed his skills as a quarterback again,  throwing 239 passing yards, and throwing three passing touchdowns. Other star players were James Conner, who had 44 rushing yards, one rushing touchdown and 19 receiving yards.

The Steelers defense, however, again allowed more than 20 points against a team for the fourth week in a row. While the Steelers defense allowing 28 points against the Eagles is troubling, they did manage to have five sacks and two interceptions.

However, one major factor of the Steelers’ victory against the Eagles was wide receiver, Chase Claypool

The Rise of Clay “Mapletron” Claypool

Chase “Mapletron” Claypool, was one of, if not the standout star of the Steelers week five game against the Eagles.

Claypool finished the game with an impressive 110 receiving yards and catching three touchdowns. He also had six rushing yards and one rushing touchdown, to add to his gameday performance.

Then, during the game, Claypool taunted the Eagles by showing four of his fingers, which references a Tom Brady meme of him showing four fingers to signify his four touchdowns of the game.

Steelers fans, satisfied with Claypool’s performance, took to twitter to give their praise to him. Fans ranged from calling Claypool “a beast” or saying that they will even buy his jersey.

One fan even tweeted “Pittsburgh’s Chase Claypool is the third rookie wide receiver to record four touchdowns in a single game in NFL history.” 

The Steelers play the Cleveland Brown next week October 18, at home.
