Quick Take: Eagles, Steelers renew in-state rivalry

NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing: Another week, another insane escape by the Eagles. Maybe, at some point, gaffes like turnovers and red-zone disasters will come back to bite them. But not yet. They're 3-1, and yet, they have the potential to be far more explosive. Scary. The Steelers are coming off a bye that helped them return to health. They might get running back Rashard Mendenhall and linebacker James Harrison back on Sunday, which would provide a major boost for this sub-.500 team.

What to watch: The spotlight shines on Pittsburgh's injury situation, and if Harrison returns, the pass rush smiles. It would be hard to imagine a quarterback getting hit more than Michael Vick; Harrison's return would guarantee Vick at least one hard blow, maybe 11. On the other side is a juicy matchup of strength on strength. The Eagles' pass rush -- a revolving door of attacking defensive linemen -- will get after the quarterback who doesn't seem to mind throwing with guys hanging off him. Will Ben Roethlisberger remain standing?
