Pittsburgh Steelers @ Philadelphia Eagles – Sunday 21:25, Sky Sports 2
The Eagles have surprised many by winning their first two matches but the performances of rookie Carson Wentz have certainly merited both victories. He looks to be a seriously good prospect and Eagles fans can be excited about the possibility of him starting for the next decade.
A good start it has been but the wins were against the currently winless Bears and Browns and this week they face a far, far tougher test when the Pittsburgh Steelers make the 300-mile journey to Rocky Balboa's home town.
As well as Wentz's performances the Eagles defense has performed superbly so far getting six sacks and forcing three fumbles. As already commented on though, this is a different animal as they are facing one of the league’s best teams and quarterbacks in Ben Roethlisberger.
The Steelers have won both their opening matches and in QB big Ben, receiver Antonio Brown and running back DeAngelo Williams they have an offense to rival any defense.
We really think this could be the week the Eagles and Wentz come back down to earth with a bump so, at a juicy 13.0, we like the Steelers to win by 19-24 points.
