The Pittsburgh Steelers make the cross-state trek to face the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8.

Date and Time: Sunday, October 30th at 1 p.m. EST

Venue: Lincoln Financial Field: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Normally a team the Birds will only have to face once every four years, Pittsburgh, with the 17th game being added to every NFL team’s regular-season slate a year ago is Philly’s draw for 2022.

They share a unique connection being Pennsylvania’s only NFL teams. They shared the field as the ‘Steagles’ during World War II in 1943. As far as what they’ve done as opponents, these two proud franchises have met on the field 80 times. Philly leads the all-time series by a 48-29-3 margin.

The 81st meeting comes in Week 8 at Lincoln Financial Field. The Steelers enter a new era with Kenny Pickett as their quarterback. They’re never an easy out. That’s never been said about a Mike Tomlin-coached team (and it never will be), and get this. The Eagles are the only NFC East team that will face Pittsburgh in 2022. That could win up playing in their favor or giving them a loss than hangs over them all season.
