2012 NFL schedule: Steelers host Eagles in must-win game

Jason Bridge-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Pittsburgh Steelers hope the bye week rest helped as they prepare to host the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

The Pittsburgh Steelers prepare to host the Philadelphia Eagles in a battle for Pennsylvania after a much-needed Week 4 bye. The Steelers are 1-2 and hope to avoid falling too far behind the Ravens and Bengals in the AFC North.

Thanks to the early bye, Pittsburgh should see the return of safety Troy Polamalu, linebacker James Harrison and running back Rashard Mendenhall. The Steelers are also happy to return to Pittsburgh, as they are 1-0 at home and 0-2 on the road thus far this season. Another positive sign for the Steelers is that Mike Tomlin has won his last four games coming off a bye.

It still won't be an easy task against the 3-1 Eagles, who are coming off a 19-17 win over the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
