The Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers have an interstate match-up on Sunday in Heinz Field.

The Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers will square off on Sunday at Heinz Field in a battle for Pennsylvania bragging rights.

The Eagles come in with a 3-1 record after beating the New York Giants in primetime last week at home. Now, Philadelphia makes the short trip to the Steel City for a contest with Mike Tomlin's crew.

The Steelers are coming off a bye week and, at 1-2, they're desperate for a win. However, good news has arrived, as Tomlin believes that both Troy Polamalu and James Harrison will be available.

Many of the experts at ESPN.com went with the home team, including Tom Jackson and Adam Schefter. Over at Yahoo.com, Mike Silver went with Michael Vick and company, while Jason Cole sided with the black and gold.

Pittsburgh has some more believers at CBSsports.com, with five of the eight men siding with the home team against the spread. When picking straight up, only the prediction machine went with the Eagles.
