Why Philadelphia Will Win
The Eagle run defense hasn’t been bad so far. The Rams were able to crank up 191 yards, and San Francisco came up with three scores, but for the most part, it’s been tough to consistently pound away on this group. Overall, the D has been great at keeping drives short – it’s getting off the field in a hurry – and it’s going to make Ben Roethlisberger and the Steeler passing game win this.
Why Pittsburgh Will Win
The run defense has been fantastic. Denver ran for 104 yards, but the Giants and Texans each came up with just 29 yards and couldn’t get anything going. That’s partly because the pass defense got bombed on, but the defensive front is just that good. Expect the secondary to have a whole lot of fun against an Eagle passing game that’s given up a league-high seven picks in four games.
Fantasy Football Player To Watch
RB James Conner, Pittsburgh
Conner is coming off a COVID bye week, and he could use the rest. The ankle that screwed him up in Week 1 was just fine against Houston, but now he should be close to 100%. The Eagles don’t have the offensive firepower to get ahead on the Steelers, so look for a relentless, patient, ground-and-pound effort that plays perfectly to a fresh-legged No. 1 back.
What’s Going To Happen
Philadelphia started the year banged up and hasn’t been able to come up with a steady effort yet through the first four games. The rested Steelers will throw at will, stuff the Eagle ground attack, and be in control throughout before coming up with two second half picks to seal it.
