The Eagles are in a tough spot after a rigid divisional battle with NY, while the Steelers are coming off of a bye week, are playing at home, and are getting some of their best players back (Polamalu, JHarrison, Mendenhall). I think it will be a close game, but I give the edge to the Steelers.

Who do you guys have in this marquee match-up?

I'd be surprised if the Steelers lost. A huge game for them, they're at home, and they're coming off a bye.

I'm picking the Steelers only because they're at home. Doesn't hurt that they're getting Troy, Harrison and Mendy back also.

I think it'll be a close game though. Eagles defense will keep it close.

I like the Eagles in this one. Really looking forward to this game. Usually I record the "big" games and end up watching the more obscure matchups, like Browns vs. Bills or something like that... but I think this one is going to be a blast.

Eagles: 23
Steelers: 21

Got the Steelers all the way here. They're coming off their bye and their backs are against the wall with the Ravens and Bengals at 3-1. They need a win in the worst way. Their defense should do very well at home against Michael Vick.

The good news is that Polamalu, Mendenhall and James Harrison will be back...The steelers are also 11-1 in their last 12 games at home

The bad news is that the d-line of the eagles is a nightmare for the steelers and in the two games of Vick in his career against the Steelers, Vick has been a nightmare for the steelers


The weakness of eagles is that their offense made a lot of turnovers, but the bad news is that the defense of the steelers make very few turnovers since last year

I have a bad feeling for this game

Steelers have never lost coming off a bye week under Tomlin.

I predict this to be the first....

35-24 Eagles

IMO Troy and James Harrison will be rusty, and Mike Vick always seems to put up big numbers against us.

I predict a shootout, but I think the Eagles are more capable of slowing us down right now than vice versa.

This is tough. I think the Eagles are easily the better team and their front seven is going to dominate Pittsburgh's O Line. But Steelers are coming off a bye and I really don't like Vick in this matchup. I think 3 point win either way, leaning toward Philly.

this is a tough one.....a lot of eagles fans here in philly are pretty worried about this one......unfortunately i think they got the turnovers out of there system in first 3 games and reid discovered a guy named shady mccoy so i think the eagles take this by a touchdown 28-21? obviously i hope otherwise Smile

Usually when you say stuff like this, we win, so that makes me feel at least a little better.

I can think of at least two times I said it last year and you didn't. Wink

The o-line is not the problem for the steelers,this year

RB and defense are the problem

Well, when it comes to Ravens games, you would say the same thing even if the Ravens were playing with a team full of backups against the Steelers. Confused

Hoping for a Eagles win, but with 3 players coming back, a bye week, home field and their back against the wall.

It's going to be tough.

This almost seems like a perfect storm situation for the Steelers to fail. Three starters returning, coming off the bye with two weeks to prepare, home field, trying to keep pace in the AFC North, and in comes a turnover prone Vick leading an Eagles team to a very shaky 3-1 start. It seems like all signs point to Pittsburgh, and that tells me this is probably a Philadelphia win.

Eagles 24, Steelers 17
