The Philadelphia Eagles have earned some much-needed rest.

It’s a marathon, not a sprint. It’s definitely a war of attrition. With six weeks of the NFL season in everyone’s rear-view mirror, none of pro football’s 32 franchises are 100 percent healthy. The Philadelphia Eagles are the lone unbeaten team.

They’ve earned some much-needed rest. A bye week is on the horizon, and when the Birds return to action in Week 8, Pennsylvania’s other NFL franchise will be waiting.

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ highest point total this season came in Week 1 (23 big ones). They’ve struggled to reach the 20-point threshold since then, but they’ve gotten there twice, in Week 4 versus the New York Jets and in Week 6 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

As you’re well aware, the Eagles are fully capable of scoring 20 points in a quarter. The only questions are about whether they can maintain that intensity for four and if they can figure out their second-half struggles over these next two weeks.

Either way, this should be a checkmark in the win column. It’s hard to determine how Pittsburgh is going to score points.
