PITTSBURGH - Greetings from Heinz Field, where the Eagles will be trying to improve to 4-1 by taking on the Steelers in about 90 minutes.

As you've undoubtedly read by now, I picked the Steelers to win today. I see them as the more desperate team that needs a victory to keep pace in the AFC North. I'm also expecting the Eagles to suffer an emotional letdown after last week's big win over the Giants.

Here are a few Eagles players to keep an eye on today. Enjoy the game.

1. S Colt Anderson: Anderson is the Eagles' best special teams player. He missed the Giants game with a knee injury.

2. CB Brandon Boykin: Steelers wide Antonio Brown labeled Boykin a candy bar this week because the Steelers offense was going to "eat him up."

3. T Demetress Bell: He gets his second straight start in place of injured King Dunlap. Bell may have won the LT job with a solid effort against the Giants.

4. DT Fletcher Cox: The rookie first-round pick has been getting better each week. He's starting to dominate in the trenches.

5. WR Jeremy Maclin: Maclin had just 1 reception against the Giants after missing a game with a hip injury.  Look for him to be a bigger offensive factor today.
