The Philadelphia Eagles visit their in-state rivals in Week 5.
Wasn’t it great to see the Philadelphia Eagles get their first win of the 2020 season? They had previously displayed flashes of the talent they had, and they finally put things together in their Sunday Night Football win against the San Francisco 49ers.
No one would blame you if you were frustrated and didn’t have many expectations heading into Week 4. After all, Philly dropped its first two games of the season and were coming off a disappointing tie versus the Cincinnati Bengals. As good as this past win was though, it’s time to move on. A tough matchup awaits them five hours down the 76 freeway.
The 2020 Eagles showed in Week 4 they are resilient and can take over games. Quarterback Carson Wentz reminded us he’s worthy of being the team’s franchise quarterback as he carried his team on his shoulders. He didn’t do it alone though. A stout defense that went into week 4 with no turnovers forced three versus the NIners.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off a quasi week off after their Week 4 game was postponed due to the number of positive COVID-19 cases their opponent, the Tennessee Titans, had diagnosed prior to their Week 4 matchup.
The Eagles will need to play even better than they did in Week 4 if they’re going to avoid another loss. Pittsburgh comes into this one with a perfect 3-0 record. Here are ten members of the ‘Black and Gold’ that the ‘Birds’ could have plenty of trouble with on Sunday.
