THE STEELERS don't lose at home, and they absolutely don't lose at home to NFC teams. But nothing lasts forever, as Phillies fans found out this season. Some of the Pittsburgh defensive stalwarts aren't getting younger, quicker or healthier. Half a decade ago, the top teams in the AFC clearly were better than the top teams in the NFC. Not sure that's the case anymore. The Eagles' offense took an important step forward when it didn't turn the ball over against the Giants. Now it needs to solidify that gain, and add some efficiency to the formula, scoring touchdowns instead of field goals.

Recent history: The Eagles defeated the Steelers, 15-6, at the Linc on Sept. 21, 2008. The Eagles lead the all-time series, 46-27-3. OFFENSE Eagles: 417.8 yards per game (5th) Steelers: 349.3 yards per game (18th) Quarterback Eagles: Michael Vick is coming off his best game of the season, an interception-free performance in which he completed 63.3 percent of his passes. Vick's decision-making was very good and he handled the Giants' blitz well, completing 8 of 12 passes when they sent 5 or more rushers.

The Pittsburgh Steelers moved quickly to replace Pro Bowl guard Duval Love, signing the Rams' Tom Newberry to a free-agent contract yesterday. Newberry, 32, was with the Rams for nine seasons. Last season, he started 14 of the 15 games he played. He played center and guard for the Rams and went to the Pro Bowl in 1988 and 1989. Love signed last week with Arizona as a free agent after three years with the Steelers.

The Eagles couldn't buy a win in a close, fourth-quarter game last season. They already have three in four games this season. That has been the main difference as the Eagles have jumped out to a 3-1 record and a one-game lead over all three of their NFC East rivals. A victory over the Steelers on Sunday would further legitimize their Super Bowl aspirations. Not many expect the Eagles to go into hostile Heinz Field and escape with a win. But the aging Steelers may be ripe, even if they are getting longtime defensive stalwarts Troy Polamalu and James Harrison back.

1Keep Ben standing: The Cardinals aren't a great pass-rushing team. They got to opposing quarterbacks just 31 times this season. But the Steelers' offensive line has had its problems protecting Ben Roethlisberger. He was sacked 46 times this season. The only quarterback who got sacked more was the Patriots' Matt Cassel (47). Twenty of those 46 sacks came in the Steelers' four lossess. If his line keeps the rush off Big Ben, he should be able to do some damage to the Cardinals' defense.

"The Bus" was back, and Ben Roethlisberger thrust both fists in the air as Jeff Reed's kick won it for the Steelers. One problem: Roethlisberger was celebrating on the bench with his left leg wrapped in ice and bandages. Shortly after Roethlisberger limped off the field with an apparent knee injury, Reed kicked a 40-yard field goal with 6 seconds left to give the Steelers a 24-22 win over the Chargers last night. "I feel great, I feel fresh," Jerome Bettis said after "The Bus" scored a touchdown in his season debut.

The Pittsburgh Steelers haven't reopened contract talks with five-time All-Pro left guard Alan Faneca despite being unsettled along their offensive line as the NFL season nears. Faneca, who promised during an angry outburst 3 months ago that he was done with the Steelers after this season, said yesterday there have been no discussions. "No, nothing new," Faneca said. Faneca, 30, became upset earlier this year when, he said, the Steelers' preliminary contract offer wouldn't have made him one of the league's 10 highest-paid guards.

The Super Bowl champion Steelers are losing their confidence, along with games. The Oakland Raiders? Suddenly, they are winning like they did in the old days, with remarkable comebacks and surprise finishes. Louis Murphy caught an 11-yard touchdown pass from Bruce Gradkowski with 9 seconds remaining, his second score in the final 5 1/2 minutes, and the Raiders scored three late touchdowns yesterday to stun host Pittsburgh, 27-24, and deal the Steelers their fourth straight loss.

NEW YORK - The nation won't have to wait long to see Peyton Manning in a Broncos uniform. Manning's first game as Broncos quarterback will come in prime time as Denver hosts Pittsburgh on the opening Sunday of the NFL season. The four-time MVP was released by Indianapolis after missing the 2011 season following neck surgery. After conducting a four-city lottery for his services, Manning landed in Denver, which hasn't won a Super Bowl since his new boss, John Elway, was behind center.

The Pittsburgh Steelers might privately be seething over several calls that went against them in a 23-20 loss to the Eagles, but give them credit for holding their tongues. With the possible exception of cornerback Donnell Woolford's gripe about a pass-interference call in the fourth quarter of yesterday's game at Veterans Stadium, none of the principals involved on the Pittsburgh side gave the NFL office ammunition to levy fines for public criticism of officials. Perhaps the Steelers are aware that Eagles coach Ray Rhodes, who has had a difficult time bottling up his frustration after losses, is facing a possible $10,000 fine for comments he made after his team's 31-21 setback to the Arizona Cardinals Nov. 2 in Tempe, Ariz.

CONNOR BARWIN'S most vivid memories of Steelers left tackle Alejandro Villanueva during his four-month cup of coffee with the Eagles two years ago have more to do with food than football. Villanueva was a decorated Army Ranger who had just completed his third tour of duty in Afghanistan when then-Eagles coach Chip Kelly and general manager Howie Roseman spotted him at a Super Regional combine in Detroit and signed him. "I used to sit there (in the NovaCare cafeteria) and watch him eat," Barwin said.

THE VIEW from the owner's box at Lincoln Financial Field offers its occupants a nice panoramic of the visitors' sideline. On Sunday afternoon, Jeffrey Lurie will spend three hours staring at the kind of thing he should be trying to build. Somewhere in the line of black-and-white-and-gold will be a head coach like the one Lurie hopes he's found in Doug Pederson, and a quarterback like the one he hopes he's found in Carson Wentz. But as he attempts to rebuild the Eagles into an organization that he can once again proclaim the "gold standard," he should focus his sights on the rest of the Steelers contingent milling around the field.

YOUNG DUDES and peer pressure. What are ya gonna do? That was Ben Roethlisberger's take, more or less, on how difficult it is to get a rookie quarterback such as Carson Wentz to truly, viscerally understand the value of discretion when rambling out of the pocket. "Well, it's hard. Now, I understand that there's a time and a place to sell your body out, and a time and a place to get down and get out of bounds. As a young guy, though, kinda in the same shoes as Carson is now, you don't see that; you just want to do everything you can for the team," Roethlisberger, 34, said in a Wednesday conference call with Philadelphia-area reporters.

TAKE A LOOK at Antonio Brown's numbers - 136 catches and 1,800 yards last year, two-time first-team All-Pro, 100-plus calls handled daily at the ESPN reception desk - and one question pops into mind. How did this guy not get drafted until the sixth round in 2010? You remember the 2010 draft. Sam Bradford was at the top. Ryan Mathews went 12th. Brandon Graham went No. 13. Demaryius Thomas (22nd) and Dez Bryant (24th) were the two wide receivers taken in the first round. Brown was mostly an afterthought.

THE FOLLOWING statement is guaranteed to be both gluten- and hyperbole-free: The Eagles' secondary should face its toughest test of the season Sunday afternoon. Ben Roethlisberger is the best quarterback the Birds are likely to encounter until late November clashes with Seattle's Russell Wilson and Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers. And Roethlisbeger has better weapons than either of those guys. The problem isn't just that Roethlisberger is good - a four-time Pro Bowler with two Super Bowl rings, whose longevity (13 seasons)

PITTSBURGH - In Philadelphia, where defense is worshipped and defensive coordinators can be lionized, performances like the one Jim Schwartz's unit displayed Thursday in a 17-0 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers could generate excitement. The Eagles defense has outpaced the offense throughout the summer, and Thursday was no different. The Eagles' hopes for a competitive team will likely depend on a defense that forced four first-half turnovers and kept Pittsburgh out of the end zone.

PITTSBURGH - After the Eagles had five takeaways in their 17-9 preseason win over the Tampa Bay Bucs last week, somebody asked defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz whether he puts particular emphasis on forcing turnovers. "Well, you can emphasize it all you want," he said. "You can do drills all you want. But you've got to have players (who can force turnovers). Standing up and giving a speech or putting a PowerPoint up or making an emphasis in a drill doesn't get it done on the field.

The Eagles will play their second preseason game Thursday against the Pittsburgh Steelers without starting wide receiver Jordan Matthews and starting linebacker Mychal Kendricks. The team also will miss quarterback Carson Wentz, defensive tackle Mike Martin, cornerback Jalen Mills, and wide receiver Hunter Sharp. Wentz and Mills are out for their first games. The other players were absent for the opener. Matthews has a knee injury and Kendricks has a hamstring injury. Coach Doug Pederson is hoping both players are ready to return next week against Indianapolis.

Temple linebacker Tyler Matakevich was on the phone with NFL teams that were looking to sign him as a potential free agent after the seventh round of the draft. Then Matakevich got a call he said he had to take. It was from Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. "It caught me off guard, and then I saw on the TV that Pittsburgh was picking next," Matakevich said on Monday in a phone interview. Indeed, he was picked next, the 246th overall selection in a 253-player draft.

MOBILE, Ala. - The Eagles interviewed Steelers pro scout coordinator Brandon Hunt for their top personnel vacancy this week at the Senior Bowl, an NFL source said. Steelers president Art Rooney told Pittsburgh reporters that his team granted the Eagles permission to talk with the 35-year-old Hunt. The scout met with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and vice president of football operations Howie Roseman on Wednesday. Lurie announced last week that the Eagles would begin their search for a "personnel head.
