This week, the Eagles travel to Heinz Field to take on the Steelers. One order of Keystone Bowl, coming up.

The Eagles are 3-1.

The Steelers are 1-3.

And the Steelers, while still a top 5 defense (at least so far) are aging. And the Eagles FINALLY had a turnover free outing, against a team that’s not too bad at causing turnovers.

That should give us a solid indication of what might happen Sunday.

But….

The Steelers are REALLY good at home. REALLY good. And the Eagles, after an emotional night last Sunday, are due for a let down. And Troy Polamalu and James Harrison are both back. And the Steelers are coming off their bye week.

In sum: Steelers.

In the rest of the matchups…

Did you notice I went 13-2 last week? That’s some good pickin’. I even had the RAMS, yo. Makes up for the previous week, when I went 5-11. Ouch.

Cardinals at Rams: Speaking of the Rams, I think they’re going to have another good week and take down the Cardinals. I’m guessing it will be a close game, but it’s hard to play on the road in a dome.

Packers at Colts: The Colts are also coming off a bye. And play inside. And the Packers have been struggling so far. But come on! Gotta go Pack.

Browns at Giants: The Giants are pissed and likely to take it out on the poor Browns, who will go winless at least one more week. Giants.

Falcons at Redskins: The Falcons will get by the Skins, but it’s gonna be a shoot-out.

Dolphins at Bengals: Call me crazy, but I’ve got the Dolphins here.

Ravens at Chiefs: I’m picking the Chiefs, even though they did me wrong against the Chargers last week. But they can put up points, and they’re at home.

Seahawks at Panthers: Again, the Seahawks are mortal away from home, but I think their stifling defense will be able to shut down the Panthers.

Bears at Jaguars: Da Bears. Who are probably feeling pretty frisky after Monday night.

Broncos at Patriots: Tom Brady and Peyton Manning renew their rivalry on Tom’s turf. I want to call Broncos, but I just can’t. Patriots.

Bills at 49ers: Speaking of stifling defenses, the Bills are dead meat. 49ers.

Titans at Vikings: The Vikings are shocking the hell out of everyone so far this year. Can they do it again? I think they can. Vikings.

Chargers at Saints: I think this will be a bittersweet week for the Saints, as Drew Brees breaks Johnny Unitas’s streak of games with a TD, and the Saints lose anyway. Hey, they had to replace large chunks of the team with holograms in order to pay Drew, so there you have it.

Texans at Jets: Did I mention that the Jets have now lost their two best players for the season? And are in serious trouble? Like, SERIOUS? Texans.

On bye: Buccaneers, Cowboys, Lions, Raiders
