steelers_eaglesThe Philadelphia Eagles could use a win in this preseason as they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers this Thursday at the Lincoln Financial Field, at 7:30 PM ET, in the battle of Pennsylvania in week 3 of the preseason.

The Eagles are 0-2 in this preseason; they lost to the New England Patriots 42-35, but failed to understand how to defend with the new rules.

“You’re just handing people first downs,” head coach Chip Kelly said. “We better figure it out. And, as I said earlier, whichever team ends up being the most disciplined team from penalties standpoint (is) going to be at a big advantage in this league. It’s a challenge to everybody.”

“We still have some things to get better at,” Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans said, “but that’s what preseason is for.”

The Steelers are 1-1 in the preseason; they beat the Buffalo Bills 19-16 with QB Ben Roethlisberger finding Antonio Brown for a 76-yard TD. “It was a great read by Ben,” Brown said. “The defensive back got caught up with another guy. Ben hit me in the spot, and I was able to get up to speed and turn the corner.”

Steelers’ head coach Mike Tomlin is 20-11 in the preseason, and Eagles Chip Kelly is 2-4 in two seasons.

The Philadelphia Eagles are 3.5 point favorites in the NFL betting odds for this preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.  The game total for this matchup was set at a high 50 points.
