The Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles face off on Sunday in an NFL showdown at Lincoln Financial Field. The home team has won the last four games played between the two teams.
The Steelers come into this game with a 2-5 record overall, and they are coming off a loss in the last game. Against the Miami Dolphins, the offense only scored 10 points, and even though the defense was good, the offense couldn’t do enough. Kenny Pickett completed 32 of his 44 passes for 257 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions. There are going to be growing pains with Pickett. In this game, if the Steelers want to find the success, they are going to need Pickett to limit the turnovers. The Steelers are averaging 15.3 points, while their defense is giving up 23.1 points per game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Eagles, who sit with a 6-0 record overall, but they have gotten lucky in some of the games. In the last game, they were outscored 14-6 by the Cowboys in the second half, but still ended up with the nine-point victory. The Eagles are averaging 26.8 points, while their defense is giving up 17.5 points per game. The offense and defense is ranked 4th in the league. Jalen Hurts has thrown for 1,514 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions. He has also rushed for 293 yards and six touchdowns.
The Eagles are 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven home games. The home team is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings played between the two teams. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings played between the two teams.
The turnovers were a big issue for Pickett in the last game, and I think that is going to be the case again here. Look for the Steelers to really struggle to move the ball here, and the Eagles are going to find success. Look for Hurts to have another big game and that will be the difference here as the Eagles are going to get the job done. Back the Eagles against the spread.
