Pittsburgh will enter Week 5's matchup against the Eagles standing at 1-2 and coming off a bye where they got some much-needed rest. 

The team will add key components to both the offense and defense as starters Troy Polamalu, James Harrison and Rashard Mendenhall are returning.

Conversely, the Eagles played their best game of the season last Sunday night, beating their rival, the Giants, 19-17. Philadelphia was as balanced offensively as they've ever been, and despite not recording a sack on Eli Manning, they applied good pressure on the reigning Super Bowl MVP, forcing him to make a few costly throws.

The Steelers could be running into a buzzsaw in the Eagles as it seems they've finally figured out how to use their talent to win games.

But that doesn't mean they're invincible.

Like any other team, Philadelphia has weaknesses that the Steelers can exploit on their way to victory.

Let's take a look at five things the Steelers need to do to win on Sunday.
