10* NFL Game of the Month
Philadelphia vs. Pittsburgh,
10/07/2012 13:00 EDT,
Score: 14 - 16
Point Spread: +3½/-110 Philadelphia
This really is a must-win game for the Steelers, but the oddsmakers know that. The Eagles are 3-1 but have their three wins by a total of just four points. They haven't played their best ball, yet they continue to win. Andy Reid and the Eagles always do well on the road and their last road game was an embarrassment in Arizona. The Steelers get a few defensive players back, but they aren't in game shape. The Eagles defense is flat-out nasty and I see at least 5-7 sacks from them in this one. At the end of the day both QB's are playing behind offensive lines that just are not very good. Right now the Eagles pass rush is a bit better than the Steelers and so are the Eagles Special Teams. Look for the Eagles to get the cover and possibly the outright win, but 3.5 points is just too much to pass up here. TAKE THE EAGLES as a 10*.
