Training camp may be over, but the preparation for the regular season has not stopped since the Pittsburgh Steelers left Saint Vincent College. Practices at their South Side facility may make the team feel more at home, but the Steelers will take to the road for their most important game of the preseason.

The third preseason game is traditionally the closest thing to a regular-season contest, with the starters playing a significant portion of the game. Though Mike Tomlin has not announced how he will use his first unit, most starters figure to play at least a half of football, if not more.

For many players, this will be one of their final opportunities to make the roster, while others will look to build upon strong performances in training camp and the first two preseason games. Besides individual performances, this game will provide the coaching staff the opportunity to evaluate the performances of the first-team offense, defense and special teams.

While there is still time for players to make an impact, many decisions regarding the roster makeup and position battles will be decided based on the team's performance against the Philadelphia Eagles.

With training camp over, the major storylines have shifted from the practice field to the playing field. Here is a look at the five biggest storylines for the Steelers this week.
