The Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers meet on Sunday in NFL Week 5 at Heinz Field.
The Philadelphia Eagles are looking for a winning streak to come out of a shaky 1-2-1 start to the NFL season. The Philadelphia Eagles have shared their last eight road games. Carson Wentz completes 60.6% of his passes for 930 yards, four touchdowns and seven interceptions. Wentz has had two or more touchdown passes in four of his last nine games. Greg Ward and Zach Ertz combined for 285 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Dallas Goedert has 13 receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles’ rushing game is averaging 111.5 yards per game, and Miles Sanders leads the way with 236 yards and a touchdown. Defensively, Philadelphia is allowing 26.8 points and 352.3 yards per game. Nathan Gerry leads the Philadelphia Eagles with 33 tackles, Brandon Graham has three sacks and Alex Singleton has an interception.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have just completed a week off and hope to start 4-0 for the first time under coach Mike Tomlin. The Pittsburgh Steelers have won six of their last seven home games. Ben Roethlisberger completes 67% of his passes for 777 yards, seven touchdowns and one interception. Roethlisberger has at least two touchdown passes in all three games this season. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Chase Claypool combined for 311 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Diontae Johnson has 14 receptions. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ rushing game is averaging 139.7 yards per game, and James Conner leads the way with 224 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Pittsburgh is allowing 19.3 points and 290 yards per game. Mike Hilton leads the Pittsburgh Steelers with 21 tackles, TJ Watt has 3.5 sacks and Joe Haden has an interception.Check out our consensus report to see how many Handicappers are on a game
The Philadelphia Eagles have an injury report longer than DMX’s arrest record, but they were able to dig deep last week and beat the 49ers on the road as big underdogs. Major boost in the Eagles’ confidence and a win that saves the season. The Pittsburgh Steelers were able to enjoy a time off last week, and they come into this game as one of the most balanced teams in the league with a second NFL defense in yards allowed per game. Despite what the Eagles did last week, they are still an extremely tough football team and playing back-to-back road games is never easy in the NFL.
I’d love to go under the seven if possible, but I still love that the Steelers win this game by a touchdown or two.
