The Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Philadelphia to face the Eagles in Week 8. Here’s how to watch the game and what we are expecting this Sunday.
It might not feel like it, but this Week 8 Pennsylvania showdown will prove to be a crucial game for both of these teams. The Philadelphia Eagles are looking to maintain healthy control of the number one seed in the NFC as they would love nothing more than a first-round bye and home-field advantage in the playoffs. Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to avoid a dreaded 2-6 start in an effort to keep their fading playoff dreams alive.
After another three-interception game, Kenny Pickett will look to lead the Steelers to victory against one of the league’s best opponents. However, upsetting the 6-0 Eagles will be the biggest challenge this team has faced yet. There’s still plenty of incentive to tune in this week. Here’s how you can catch the game:

Steelers vs Eagles Predictions
Mike Tomlin has done all in his power to help his team stay alive in the playoff hunt, but falling to the Miami Dolphins in primetime on Sunday Night Football was a big setback. Now the Steelers will look to avoid disaster heading into the bye week.
The line for this game is still set at 10.5 points, according to Fanduel Sportsbook. While Pittsburgh is healthy (with the exception of T.J. Watt) they are heavy underdogs for a reason against an Eagles team that is rich will talent on both sides of the football. On the Still Curtain Podcast, we predicted that the Steelers would fall to the Eagles with a final score of 27-16. We are sticking with that prediction ahead of kickoff.
Steelers vs Eagles History
The Pittsburgh Steelers have not found great success against this in-state opponent as they are just 29-48-3 all-time against the Philadelphia Eagles. Their most recent head-to-head contest featured a win 38-29 win for Mike Tomlin’s team in Week 5 of 2020; however, these are two very different teams at this point. Let’s hope the Steelers can close the gap just a bit on this historically lopsided Pennsylvania rivalry.
