#OnThisDay in 1943, The Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers combined into one team due to player shortages caused by WWII. The "Steagles" went 5-4-1, and the two teams went back to normal in 1944!

    Steagles - Wikipedia
    The Steagles were the team created by the temporary merger of two National Football League (NFL) teams, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles, during the 1943 season. The teams were forced to merge because both had lost many players to military service during World War II.
