The Philadelphia Eagles travel to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the battle for Pennsylvania. The Eagles are 3-1 and looking to stay a game ahead in the NFC East.

Philadelphia is coming off a 19-17 win over the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants in what was the Eagles first game of the season without committing a turnover. Philadelphia dominated the ground game, something which will be harder to do against a stout Steelers' defense that is once again healthy.

Thanks to an early Week 4 bye, Pittsburgh should see the return of safety Troy Polamalu and linebacker James Harrison, as well as running back Rashard Mendenhall.
