The Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers once combined to form the Steagles

At one point in history, Pennsylvania’s two National Football League teams, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles, combine to form one super team. This occurred in the 1943 season. Both teams had lost many of their players to military service during World War II, and the league allowed them to combine so that they had enough players to field one team. This team was called the Steagles, a clever combination of the Eagles and the Steelers. It only lasted one season.
