PITTSBURGH - The Eagles couldn't hold off the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday at Heinz Field.

Steelers place-kicker Shaun Suisham booted a 34-yard field goal on the final play of regulation to seal a 16-14 victory over the Eagles.

Suisham's third field goal of the game ended a 64-play drive for the Steelers, who improved to 2-3.

The Eagles (3-2) were trailing 13-7 early in the fourth quarter when quarterback Michael Vick shook off his earlier troubles - he lost two fumbles in the first quarter - to drive them to a go-ahead score.

The Eagles marched 79 yards in 17 plays and took a 14-13 lead on Vick's 2-yard touchdown pass to tight end Brent Celek. The Eagles converted two fourth-down plays during the drive. Vick and wide receiver DeSean Jackson combined for a 24-yard completion.

Vick completed 20 of 30 passes for 175 yards and two TDs.
