Eagles try to Bounce Back vs. Steelers


The Philadelphia Eagles will try to get back on the winning track on Sunday when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers (2-0) have looked good this season, and have established themselves as one of the teams to beat in the AFC this season. The Eagles look to bounce back after their deflating loss to the Cowboys. There are some reasons to feel good and bad about this game. We feel that if the Eagles can control the Steelers running game, which they have shown they are capable of doing in the early season, that we can win the game. If you put the Steelers in 3rd and long situations, then you bring the pressure on Roethlisberger, you can shut down the Steelers offense. The Steelers are effective when they can establish the run, because they then like to run, run, run, play action over the top. The Steelers also have a very strong run defense, so the Eagles need to find ways to get Westbrook out into the open field, with some screen passes, and maybe spreading him out wide. There are some things to consider when going into this game however. The Eagles never play well a week after they play the Cowboys. The Eagles never play well a week after they play on Monday night. Andy Reid's record as head coach of the Eagles against AFC teams that make the playoffs is 0-13. So it should be a good early season test, it would be good to get this win, as there are some winnable games on the Eagles schedule after this game. The game will be nationally televised on CBS Sunday at 4:15.
