The Steelers would have started the same five players up front in consecutive games for the first time this season.

Because that matchup has been pushed back until later in the month, the Steelers will have to wait another week until Alejandro Villanueva, Matt Feiler, Maurkice Pouncey, David DeCastro and Chuks Okorafor can line up together for a second game in a row, only this time the opponent will be the Philadelphia Eagles.

“Your strength in numbers starts to improve, and you’re talking about an All-Pro player,” offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner said in the days leading up to that Week 3 matchup. “Yes, I have a smile on my face.”
