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 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.

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.

By the time the second half of the Eagles' 31-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers started on Thursday night, Nick Foles was wearing a baseball cap and studying the game on a tablet. His evening was complete. It was the same for the rest of the starters. Coach Chip Kelly took his top players out after their two best quarters this month. Preseason games can be unconvincing and deceiving, but they provide glimpses on the way to the regular season. And the outlook of Eagles fans may have understandably improved from alarmed (after the preseason opener)

IF YOU WERE LOOKING for a reason to believe the Eagles' pass rush would be better this season, you didn't find it in the first two preseason games. They notched only three sacks against the Bears and Patriots, none against the No. 1 offensive units. Yes, they seldom blitzed. Yes, defensive coordinator Bill Davis was more concerned with evaluating young edge-rushers such as rookie first-round pick Marcus Smith and Travis Long than he was with his unit's sack total. But when you're coming off a season in which you had only 37 sacks and finished 31st in the league in sacks per pass play, fans tend to get a little anxious for a sign that things are going to get better.

The NFL is reportedly looking into the actions of Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin, who appeared to impede the progress of Baltimore kick returner Jacoby Jones during the Ravens' 22-20 win over the Steelers on Thanksgiving night. After the Steelers had scored in the third quarter to make it 13-7, Jones fielded the kickoff at his own goal-line and took off on what looked like a sure touchdown, running past every Steeler on the field. Every Steeler player , that is. Tomlin was standing on the white stripe that borders the field, facing away from the play, as Jones sped up the sideline.

The second-year tackle, who was the team's rookie of the year in 2012, was recovering in a hospital, the team said. "He'll be OK," agent Eric Metz of Phoenix said. "He told me he was lucky.

Pittsburgh police said Steelers offensive tackle Michael Adams , 23, was stabbed during an attempted carjacking on the city's south side. Police said Adams told officers he was standing near his truck shortly after 3 a.m. Saturday when he was confronted by three men, one armed with a knife and another with a handgun. Adams told police he didn't have his car keys, and "the situation escalated" to the point he was stabbed twice before all three fled. Adams went into a nearby restaurant to seek help and was later hospitalized.

BALTIMORE - Ben Roethlisberger couldn't have done it any better. Third-string quarterback Charlie Batch directed a 61-yard drive in the closing minutes, and Shaun Suisham kicked a 42-yard field goal as time expired to give the Pittsburgh Steelers a 23-20 victory Sunday over the Baltimore Ravens. Playing without the injured Roethlisberger for a third straight week, the Steelers turned to 37-year-old Batch for the second game in a row. He completed 25 of 36 for 276 yards and a touchdown as the Steelers beat their AFC North archrivals.

For the third consecutive game, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be without their star quarterback. At least it appears as if they'll have the quarterback of their defense and the reigning team MVP back on the field. Ben Roethlisberger will not play Sunday in Baltimore, meaning Charlie Batch will make his second consecutive start at quarterback for the Steelers (6-5), who have lost each of the first two games Roethlisberger missed. Unlike a defeat at home two weeks ago to the rival Ravens (9-2)

MIKE WALLACE is in his fourth season with the Pittsburgh Steelers, so the wide receiver is familiar with all this talk about Charlie Batch. Asked whether it was at all concerning that the man throwing the ball to him on Sunday will soon be 38 years old, Wallace shrugged. "He's been old," he said of Batch. "It's not like he just got old. Chuck's been old since I got here, so it's nothing new. " Neither is Batch making his first fill-in start for his hometown Steelers (6-4)
