It would be helpful to the Eagles if Sleeves plays like he played at the beginning of last season.

The Eagles will of course take on their toughest opponent of the season to date during the late afternoon games this Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In case you missed it, here are are five matchups to watch today between the Eagles and Steelers, as well as our staff picks and our Week 3 NFL picks.

We'll have a separate live chat / open thread for the Eagles' game, but here's a place to discuss the early games, which include: 

• Cardinals at Bills

• Raiders at Titans

• Browns at Dolphins

• Ravens at Jaguars

• Lions at Packers

• Broncos at Bengals

• Vikings at Panthers

• Redskins at Giants

Obviously, the main game of interest is Redskins-Giants, where the reigning division champion Redskins face the possibility of starting the season 0-3. The other game of interest is Vikings-Panthers, as the Eagles hold the Vikings' first round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
