Eagles vs. Steelers: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

Eric Hartline-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

After squeaking out another victory, the Philadelphia Eagles head to Pittsburgh for an in-state showdown with the Steelers on Sunday.

The Philadelphia Eagles, after scoring another close win on Sunday night, will face a Pittsburgh Steelers team looking to get a few key members back on the field in Week 5 on Sunday.

Philadelphia (3-1) survived two potential game-winning field goal attempts by New York Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes to earn the 19-17 win in Week 4. Quarterback Michael Vick, with his play being questioned before the contest, turned in a solid performance, completing 19-of-30 passes for 241 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions. He also ran six times for 49 yards.

Meanwhile, the Steelers (1-2) are coming off their bye week hoping for the return of defensive stalwarts Troy Polamalu and James Harrison as well as running back Rashard Mendenhall, who will hope to aid Pittsburgh's rushing offense, which, with an average of 65 yards per game, ranks 31st in the league.

The Steelers, playing at home, are favored by 3 points, according to OddsShark, while the over/under stands at 43.

Game time is set for 1 p.m. ET at Heinz Field, and the contest will be televised on Fox.
