3. Philadelphia Eagles vs Pittsburgh Steelers, October 11th at Heinz Field
The Eagles and Steelers will meet Week 5 in a battle to see who is the best team in Pennsylvania. Similar to the New York Jets vs the New York Giants, this matchup only happens once every four years. Last time the Steelers matched up against the Eagles was Week 3 of the 2016 season and the Steelers got demolished.
Carson Wentz, a rookie quarterback at the time, hung 34 points on the Steelers while the Eagles defense only gave up 3 points. Needless to say, the Steelers are going to want revenge, and playing at home this time gives even more of a reason to go out and win that football game.
The Eagles’ secondary has added Darius Slay Jr. and Nickell Roby-Coleman, but outside of those two players, their secondary still remains weak. I expect the Steelers offense to be fully operational by this time in the season and have their identity established. The Steelers have also added immense defensive talent since 2016 that can easily shut down Philadelphia’s offense mainly due to their lack of wide receivers. I predict the Steelers beat the Eagles at home 27-10 and get their sweet revenge.
