Philadelphia is 0-2 in the preseason, but it hasn’t been because of a lack of offense. The Birds have lost a pair of shootouts on the road: 34-28 in Week 1 at Chicago and 42-35 last week at New England, where Foles was sharp but second-stringer Mark Sanchez threw a costly interception to begin the third quarter and the Pats capitalized with a touchdown.

Pittsburgh, meanwhile, is coming off a 19-16 win at home against Buffalo in what was the Steelers’ first preseason win since 2012. Preseason results should be taken with a grain of salt, but it’s worth noting that Mike Tomlin’s team followed its 0-4 preseason last year with an 0-4 September before winning 8 of their final 12 games to finish .500.
