We have reached the so called dress rehearsal during the preseason in week three. This is the time when we usually see starters go deeper into games as they play well into the third period. Coaching staffs want to build up stamina for their players to get them ready for a 60 minute regular season game that is now just two weeks away. Also they want their starters to get used to playing following the halftime break.

The Philadelphia Eagles have predictably been outstanding on the offensive side of the football. in week one the club posted 28 points and last week the club posted 35 points on the scoreboard. The Eagles are 0-2 in the preseason as the club has given up an average of 38 points per game in these two games. The Eagles were 32nd and last in the NFL in all four key areas of defense. They gave up the most yards in 483 yards per game and gave up the most points per game in 38 per contest during the 2013 regular season.

Pittsburgh has suffered through disappointing seasons the past two years. Their offense has been an issue as the club ranked 29th and fourth worst in the league in averaging 252 yards per game. Their one stout run defense took a hit last year as the club allowed an eye opening 160 yards per game ranking 29th in the NFL. Ben Roethlisberger is coming off a solid effort last week in their preseason win against Buffalo. Big Ben hit on 8 of 11 throws for 128 yards and two touchdowns.
