NFL FREE PICK: Take Pittsburgh. According to latest NFL trends, Pittsburgh is 9-0 ATS off a loss. Eagles are 0-4 ATS after playing NY Giants. The Steelers are coming off a bye, which meant that they could finally get healthy. That’s great for QB Ben Roethlisberger, who has the put the ball in the air early and often. Now he’ll have RB Rashard Mendenhall back from a knee injury along with star S Troy Polamalu. They also could finally get back LB James Harrison, who has missed the first three games with a knee injury. The Eagles are coming off a very physical battle against the Giants on Sunday night. They did win to go 3-1 but now they face another very physical team that will stop the run and force Michael Vick to the air. The Steelers’ linebackers will punish Vick and force a few more turnovers.
