Merger teams are all in action
Posted Jan. 13 at 01:53 PM
Twice during World War II, NFL teams merged and played under one banner, and all of those teams are on display this weekend.
In 1943, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles combined for one season, alternating home games between the two cities. They were called the "Steagles" by fans.
And in 1944, the Steelers began joint operations with the Chicago Cardinals. That team went 0-10. As with the other mini-merger, it expired the day that the season ended, with both teams at the point again becoming full-fledged, independent franchises.
