It may just be the preseason, but you can feel the excitement surrounding the approaching football season. And it isn’t just the fans who feel this way.
Following the Steelers’ 31-14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1 of the preseason, players took to social media to celebrate and appreciate the team’s first, albeit-meaningless victory of the season.
Take a look at what was said on different platforms following the game! I also added in some interesting video which I felt fans might enjoy.
(Editor’s Note: This article may be updated as more players take to social media to talk about the team’s victory on Thursday night.)
