Consensus 2024 NFL Free Agency Rankings

We are a few weeks away from the start of NFL free agency. Teams can officially sign free agents starting on Wednesday, March 13th at 4 PM ET, when the next league year begins, but they can begin negotiating with agents during the legal tampering window that begins on Monday, March 11th.

Using free-agent rankings from a variety of sources, we have ranked the available free-agent pool using their consensus ranking score.

Here are some notes on how to interpret the table below:

  • Five sources were used and the "total" column is the sum of those rankings.
  • The lower the score, the better. For example, Chris Jones was the consensus top-ranked free agent and his score was 5 (five rankings of 1).
  • Free agents unranked by an individual source get their next ("+1") ranking.
    • Example: CBS Sports ranked 50 free agents and every free agent not included in their rankings (e.g., Jadeveon Clowney) received a score of 51.

Players that get designated with the franchise tag (deadline: March 5th) will be excluded. Only unrestricted free agents are included; restricted free agents are excluded.

Baltimore Ravens 2024 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2024 NFL Draft, we will update our Baltimore Ravens Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Baltimore Ravens from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Ravens:

The Draft Network - Ryan Fowler (1/14)

32. Byron Murphy II, IDL, Texas

What a year it's been for the Baltimore defense. And what an unbelievable year it's' been for pending free agent Justin Madubuike within the guts of the front three. Similar in height/weight and skill set to that of Baltimore's former third-rounder, Byron Murphy II is one of the most explosive 3-techs in the nation. Should Madubuike depart, Murphy II can provide an immediate insurance plan for one of the league's most athletic front sevens.

San Diego Union-Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/12)

32. Troy Fautanu, IOL, Washington

Starting guards John Simpson and Kevin Zeitler will both be free agents in March. Fautanu's heavy hands and impressive athleticism has been on display at tackle for the Huskies the last two seasons, but less-than-ideal arm length might cause a team to kick him inside at the next level. Regardless, he has Pro Bowl-level talent.

The 33rd Team - Marcus Mosher (1/12)

32. Kris Jenkins, IDL, Michigan

The Baltimore Ravens love to build up their trenches, so why not draft a player from the Harbaugh pipeline again? Kris Jenkins excelled as a run defender at Michigan and would give Baltimore even more size and athleticism on its defensive line.

NBC Sports - Connor Rogers (1/11)

32. Keon Coleman, WR, Florida State

The Ravens got a shifty, creative wide receiver in Zay Flowers last year in Round 1. Now, they grab a big-bodied, above-the-rim target in Keon Coleman. His play style fits with Lamar Jackson's ability to create magic out of structure.

ESPN - Jordan Reid (1/10)

31. Chop Robinson, EDGE, Penn State

The Ravens like to continue building up strengths, and that's what they do here with Robinson. Baltimore has gotten a lot of pass-rush productivity out of Jadeveon Clowney (9.5 sacks) and Kyle Van Noy (9.0), but Robinson would make this defense even better. He is one of the most explosive players in this class. Yes, he had only four sacks in 10 games this season, but his 18.0% pressure rate ranked sixth among players with at least 150 pass-rush snaps. For Robinson to reach his full potential, he will need a situation where he isn't relied on as an immediate full-time starter, and this seems like a perfect match.

The Athletic - Nick Baumgardner (1/10)

32. Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo

Long, explosive and the owner of 4.3 speed, Mitchell had major (name, image and likeness-related) opportunities to leave Toledo and join an SEC team or another top-tier program this past offseason. He stuck with the Rockets and wound up as one of the nation's most productive man-coverage corners.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (1/9)

32. J.T. Tuimoloau, EDGE, Ohio State

Eric DeCosta has built one of the NFL's most formidable rosters by scooping up gems in the draft rather than forcing picks based on need. Here, that strategy points them toward Tuimoloau, a powerful if inconsistent force off the edge who should help replenish a pass rush that could lose Pro Bowl defensive tackle Justin Madubuike and Jadeveon Clowney in free agency.

Atlanta Falcons 2024 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2024 NFL Draft, we will update our Atlanta Falcons Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Atlanta Falcons from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Falcons:

The Draft Network - Ryan Fowler (1/14)

8. Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA

My EDGE1 in the class, Laiatu Latu won't blow you away with his athletic profile or 40 time, but his hands, strength, and unbelievably deep pass-rush repertoire is beyond his years. I expect him to dominate one-on-ones at the Senior Bowl and boost his stock into the top 10.

San Diego Union-Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/12)

8. Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

Could Belichick end up coaching the Falcons next season? If so, he'd likely pester GM Terry Fontenot to target Turner in the draft. Turner was overshadowed by Will Anderson Jr. his previous two seasons at Tuscaloosa — he had 8.5 sacks as a true freshman in 2021 — but he's capable of being a star in his own right. This season, the AP All-American added some bulk to his frame and displayed more power to go with his already impressive speed-rush capabilities.

The 33rd Team - Marcus Mosher (1/12)

8. Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson

Ideally, the Atlanta Falcons would love to move up and get one of the top three quarterbacks in this class. But in this mock, they stay at No. 8 and select the top cornerback: Nate Wiggins.

A.J. Terrell had another strong season in Atlanta, but the Falcons need a better option opposite him. Pairing him with another Clemson Tiger in Wiggins makes too much sense.

NBC Sports - Connor Rogers (1/11)

8. Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

The first defensive player to come off the board, Turner is as athletic as they come in the front seven. In 2022, so much of his game was built around speed, but the strength strides he made in 2023 have turned him into a top 12 prospect.

He'll play his entire rookie season as a 21-year-old, with a massive pass rush ceiling in front of him.

ESPN - Jordan Reid (1/10)

8. Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA

It's no secret the Falcons need a quarterback. But Arthur Smith has been relieved of his coaching duties, and with pressure to win next season, I think Atlanta could go the veteran route under center. With that in mind, adding another pass-rusher makes sense, as the Falcons owned the worst pass rush win rate (30.9%) in the league. Latu has an impressive arsenal of pass-rush moves and has improved as a run defender. He was second in the FBS in pressure rate (20.1%) this season and recorded 23.5 sacks since joining UCLA in 2022.

Medical issues are the biggest question mark here. Latu was forced to sit out two seasons because of a 2020 neck injury while still at Washington. But with a clean bill of health, he would be a no-brainer top-10 pick.

The Athletic - Nick Baumgardner (1/10)

TRADE - 1. Caleb Williams, QB, USC

Proposed trade: Atlanta receives No. 1; Chicago receives Nos. 8 and 43 plus a future first-round pick and a future second-round pick

Chicago hasn't made a decision yet on Justin Fields. If the Bears decide to move on, this pick will be for a quarterback.

At the same time, the Bears' trade last March with Carolina again puts general manager Ryan Poles in a situation in which he can unload No. 1 for a haul, further build around (or kick the can on) Fields and really charge up an already impressive young roster.

Of all the QB-needy teams, Atlanta's roster is the most ready to win. Now, add a new coach and a new face of the franchise. Williams next to running back Bijan Robinson, in an offense with tight end Kyle Pitts and wide receiver Drake London, might sell a ticket or two.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (1/9)

8. Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

The quarterback question is going to hang over the franchise all offseason after Arthur Smith's firing, but there doesn't seem to be a suitable solution here for an otherwise playoff-ready roster. Still, there should be no problem with picking up Turner, a dynamic and explosive edge threat who would recalibrate a lackluster pass rush.

Arizona Cardinals 2024 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

The Draft Network - Ryan Fowler (1/14)

4. Olu Fashanu, OT, Penn State

Notre Dame's Joe Alt is my top tackle in the class, but this is a pick with Olu Fashanu's ceiling in mind within an improving Arizona roster. A year after taking the raw yet uber-talented Paris Johnson Jr on day one, GM Monti Ossenfort goes a similar route with Fashanu, one of the class' most gifted pound-for-pound athletes with an underappreciated game as a run blocker.

26. Xavier Legette, WR, South Carolina

This still may be too low for Xavier Legette. A physical specimen at 6-foot-3 and 227 pounds, he's a three-level threat that forces multiple defenders to bring him down in space. His stock is expected to SOAR after his week at the Senior Bowl.

San Diego Union-Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/12)

4. Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

Would GM Monti Ossenfort move on from Kyler Murray and select one of the top-3 QBs here if one is available? Perhaps, but I'm thinking the Cardinals are still committed to Murray, and Ossenfort wouldn't complain if he were able to fill one of his roster's biggest needs with the top overall prospect in the draft. If we were to "Weird Science" a wide receiver, the computer would almost certainly produce Harrison. The consensus All-American is a route tactician who features prototypical size (6-foot-4, 205 pounds), strong hands and athleticism with Hall of Fame NFL lineage (he's the son of Colts legend Marvin Harrison). The last receiver to be drafted inside the top-3 was Calvin Johnson in 2007, and Harrison has that type of potential.

21. Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

The Cardinals landed the best player in this draft (Marvin Harrison Jr.) with their first pick of the first round. Here they can continue to build a young and talented secondary. Based on upside, Arnold could be ranked higher on some draft boards than his Crimson Tide teammate Kool-Aid McKinstry. He's relatively inexperienced at cornerback — he was a former safety recruit — but he's been one of the better run defenders at the position and has proven a quick-study in coverage.

The 33rd Team - Marcus Mosher (1/12)

4. Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

This mock draft couldn't have worked out any better for the Arizona Cardinals.

With three quarterbacks picked in a row, that leaves Marvin Harrison Jr. on the board at No. 4. Wide receiver is the most significant need for Arizona, and Harrison is a can't-miss prospect. Pairing him with Kyler Murray would be a blast to watch.

21. Troy Fautanu, IOL, Washington

D.J. Humphries' future is up in the air, especially after he tore his ACL in the final month of the season. The expectation for the Cardinals is that Paris Johnson Jr. will kick over to left tackle, but Arizona desperately needs help on the interior offensive line.

Fautanu was a left tackle at Washington, but he best projects as a guard in the NFL. His size and athleticism would be welcomed in Arizona as the Cardinals try to rebuild the offensive line in front of Kyler Murray.

NBC Sports - Connor Rogers (1/11)

4. Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

In a perfect world, Marvin Harrison Jr. falls into Arizona's lap due to the quarterback craze. In this scenario they still make out great with a blue chip tackle in Joe Alt. Paris Johnson Jr. would stay at right tackle for the Cardinals in this scenario, where he spent all of his rookie year.

Alt's movement for his size is impressive, while being an extremely disciplined player who can move defenders in the run game.

21. Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

There's a lot of work to be done from a personnel standpoint on Arizona's defense and it's easy to start at corner. Arnold's 2023 tape is tremendous, showing off athleticism and the ability to remain sticky in coverage. He hauled in five interceptions and broke up 12 more passes, constantly making his presence felt when the ball was in the air.

ESPN - Jordan Reid (1/10)

4. Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

If we were playing a game of matchmaker, the prospect-to-team fit that makes the most sense of any first-round pick is Harrison to the Cardinals. Quarterback Kyler Murray won't hesitate to throw the ball up to his receivers in one-on-one situations, and Harrison -- my top-ranked player in this class -- is exactly what's needed on a roster that's still devoid of high-end talent. Plus, Marquise Brown is a free agent and might not be back.

Harrison's combination of hands, body control and route running make him the clear best receiver in a loaded group, and he has a chance to quickly become a top-10 target at the next level. He is coming off back-to-back seasons with 14 touchdowns and more than 1,200 yards at Ohio State.

22. Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

Marvin Harrison Jr. was Arizona's first pick (No. 4), so let's turn to defense here. Rookie third-rounder Garrett Williams has been a pleasant surprise, but Antonio Hamilton Sr. is a free agent and turns 31 years old this month. Jonathan Gannon's defense badly needs cornerback help. Arnold's five interceptions tied for sixth most in the FBS this season, and he is an effortless mover in the secondary, even if his game is still a little raw. He has versatility, too, with experience at safety. Arnold will be a riser over the next few months, and some scouts think he could be the first corner off the board in April.

The Athletic - Nick Baumgardner (1/10)

4. Olu Fashanu, OT, Penn State

The Cardinals finished the year with good vibes and a confident Kyler Murray. They are firmly in position to be 2024's version of the Texans: a good, young club that springboards itself to the next level via the draft.

Fashanu is a true anchor tackle to play opposite Paris Johnson Jr., who also could play guard if the Cardinals want to go that route.

21. Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA

This feels like a steal — and possibly too low for Latu, the super-productive UCLA edge who once medically retired because of a neck injury. Latu is not going to wow people with his testing, but his move set and hand usage are terrific. He's a rock-solid player who had 64 pressures and a near-25 percent win rate this season.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (1/9)

4. Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

The Cardinals will likely root hard for quarterbacks to be taken with the first three picks atop the draft, as it's the only way the team can land the premier non-passer in the class. If Harrison is available for Arizona, he's a no-brainer. With the best wide receiver prospect in years paired with emerging standout tight end Trey McBride, Kyler Murray would have the makings of a very impressive receiving corps.

21. Jer'Zhan Newton, IDL, Illinois

Jonathan Gannon surely misses the interior pressure he once could rely on from the Eagles' defense, as Arizona hasn't been able to generate anything from its defensive tackles. Though undersized at 6-2 and 295 pounds, Newton has made a habit of wrestling past blockers and making plays in the backfield.

Early 2024 Fantasy Football Mock Draft

The NFL regular season ended only a few days ago, but it's never too early to look ahead to the upcoming season.

In the near future, we will post our early 2024 fantasy football rankings. And later in (and throughout) the offseason, we will post full fantasy football mock drafts.

For now, this is an early look at how the first round in fantasy mock drafts could play out this summer.

Note: All references are based on half-PPR scoring, unless stated otherwise.

1.01 - Christian McCaffrey, RB, San Francisco 49ers

McCaffrey, fantasy's top-scoring non-QB, nearly doubled up the last RB1 (Saquon Barkley, RB12). Through Week 17, CMC (out Week 18) handled 76% of the team's 446 running back touches (excluding fullback Kyle Juszczyk's 19 touches). A perfect fit within Kyle Shanahan's offense, he led the NFL in touches (339), yards from scrimmage (2,023) and touchdowns (21), and he has finished as a top-three fantasy running back in all four of his full seasons — RB3 (2018), RB1 ('19), RB2 ('22) and RB1 ('23), respectively.

1.02 - Justin Jefferson, WR, Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings started four different quarterbacks in 2023, and Kirk Cousins is slated to become a free agent in March. While the obvious concern for Jefferson's status as fantasy's WR1 is the team's quarterback situation, especially if they don't re-sign Cousins, Jefferson had two of his best games in the final three weeks. A hamstring forced him to miss two months, but Jefferson finished with 140-plus yards in five of 10 games and averaged a career-high 107.4 YPG.

1.03 - CeeDee Lamb, WR, Dallas Cowboys

Lamb has been more productive in each successive season, and fantasy's top-scoring wide receiver was the best version of himself from Week 6-18. During that span, Lamb racked up a 108/1,391/11 on 146 targets and added 11/92/2 rushing. The only receiver (barely) within five fantasy points of Lamb (23.2) during that stretch was Miami's Tyreek Hill (18.4).

1.04 - Tyreek Hill, WR, Miami Dolphins

Through two seasons in Miami, Hill has amassed 238 catches for 3,509 yards and 20 touchdowns with an additional 47 rushing yards and a score. Per PFF, Hill led qualified receivers in yards per route run (3.82) in 2023, and only Nico Collins (3.10), Brandon Aiyuk (3.01), and Justin Jefferson (2.91) were within one yard of him. (Hill led the NFL with 3.07 Y/RR in '22 as well.) While he'll turn 30 in March, there's little reason to expect (much of) a slowdown as he runs it back with Tua Tagovailoa and Mike McDaniel in '24.

1.05 - Ja'Marr Chase, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

Although he's the WR4 in this mock, a case could be made for Chase to be drafted as the WR1 this summer. Injuries have slowed him and/or Joe Burrow over the past two seasons, but the 23-year-old (turns 24 in March) receiver already has 268/3,717/29 through 45 career games.

1.06 - Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, Detroit Lions

St. Brown had a career season — 112/1,371/9 on 154 targets — and only Lamb and Hill scored more fantasy points this season. While he may not have the weekly ceiling of the receivers listed ahead of him, his consistency stands out. ARSB has four or more catches in all but eight career games, 90-plus yards in 11 of his past 15 games, and the most top-25 half-PPR weeks (14, tied with Lamb) this season.

1.07 - A.J. Brown, WR, Philadelphia Eagles

It was a tale of two seasons for Brown — 67/1,005/6 in 9G before the bye and 39/451/1 in 8G after the bye. Despite the post-bye production dip, Brown finished 2023 with more targets (158) and receptions (106) than he had last year and nearly as many yards (1,456). Squarely in his prime, Brown is a near lock for another 1,400-yard campaign.

1.08 - Breece Hall, RB, New York Jets

Not much went right for the Jets in 2023, although Hall was one of their few bright spots. Hall nearly rushed for 1,000 yards (994), led all running backs in receptions (76) and scored the fourth-most fantasy points (second-most in full-PPR formats) among running backs. With more competent quarterback play next season and being another year removed from his torn ACL, Hall is my preferred choice among non-McCaffrey running backs.

1.09 - Kyren Williams, RB, Los Angeles Rams

Although he missed several games, Williams averaged 21.7 touches in his 12 games played. In addition, only McCaffrey (11) had more 20-touch games than Williams (nine) this season. He had a minimum of 12.8 fantasy points in all but two games, and he had at least 20 touches and 100 YFS in each of his past seven games. Fantasy managers should expect Williams to continue to get massive workloads in 2024 based on L.A.'s current roster construction.

1.10 - Jonathan Taylor, RB, Indianapolis Colts

A tension-filled summer between Taylor and the Colts extended into the season with a four-game PUP stint but ended with a three-year contract extension. While a healthy Anthony Richardson — four rushing touchdowns in four games — could lower his touchdown ceiling and targets (on checkdowns) in 2024, Taylor is one of the most talented young running backs (turns 25 later this month) who could set career highs in YPC given Richardson's rushing threat.

1.11 - Bijan Robinson, RB, Atlanta Falcons

Somewhat of a disappointment compared to his ADP, Robinson's next coach is less likely to under-utilize him the way that (now-fired) Arthur Smith did. An elite talent and a top-10 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, Robinson averaged 4.7 yards per carry and was one of five running backs with 30-plus 10-yard runs. Among running backs, he ranked second in targets (86), sixth in receptions (58), fourth in receiving yards (487), and third in receiving touchdowns (four). Without Smith holding him back, Robinson should be a top-five running back in 2024.

1.12 - Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Detroit Lions

Despite sharing the backfield with David Montgomery (RB13), Gibbs ended the year as a top-10 running back. Gibbs actually started slowly — RB36, RB24, RB23, and RB29, respectively, and then two missed games — but finished strong. From Week 7 on, Gibbs was tied with Taylor in fantasy points per game behind Williams and McCaffrey.

New York Jets Week 10 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the New York Jets in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 18

Non-QB MVP: RB Breece Hall

It's simple math: The Jets are 4-0 when Hall scores a touchdown. Going back to last season, it's 8-0. Running as if last year's ACL surgery never happened, Hall was leading the NFL in yards per carry (5.7) at the start of Week 9. The Jets' offense is out of balance because of a subpar passing game, causing opponents to overplay the run, but that hasn't stopped Hall from being the home run threat they haven't had in more than a decade. -- Rich Cimini -- Rank: 18

There's just not much positive spin you can put on the Jets' offensive performance Monday against a Chargers defense which hadn't looked that good since it faced a since-fired coach (Josh McDaniels) and a fourth-round rookie making his first start (Aidan O'Connell). Zach Wilson had been trending in a relatively positive direction, but this game stunted that. There were impressive flashes here and there, but two early fumbles and a host of missed throws cost the Jets dearly in a home game that you have to figure they felt confident about winning coming in. But if Breece Hall or Garrett Wilson aren't creating magic, this offense has very little hope these days, especially when it allows eight sacks.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 20

The offense is too limited without Aaron Rodgers. The offensive line is awful and Zach Wilson isn't good enough.

USA Today -- Rank: 18

Only one team in the league has yet to score on its opening drive this season. Take a guess. The NYJ have eight offensive TDs this season, two fewer than Miami had ... in Week 3.

The Athletic -- Rank: 24

Report card: C-plus

How do you not have a better backup plan when you sign a 39-year-old quarterback? The Jets loaded up this season, building a dynamite defense and getting running back Breece Hall back from injury. Aaron Rodgers' injury is not New York's fault, but not having a better Plan B than Zach Wilson is. The Jets knew Wilson was what they saw again Monday night, which resulted in seven punts and another wasted defensive effort. New York leads the NFL with 5.88 punts per game.

FOX -- Rank: 18

Was that stretch of decent Zach Wilson play just a mirage? It sure as hell feels like it. We're back to the toxic vibes from last season, as the quarterback position is now again holding back an otherwise solid team. Robert Saleh says he won't make a change, but is that the truth?

Yahoo! -- Rank: 17

The Jets' defense leading New York to the playoffs is a fun fantasy, but it's hard to believe it's possible. The Jets are unwatchable on offense. A 27-6 loss, with the Jets' defense playing incredibly well and holding a good Chargers offense to 191 yards, is disheartening.

PFT -- Rank: 19

Will Aaron Rodgers make much of a difference if they can't block for him?

Philadelphia Eagles Week 10 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the Philadelphia Eagles in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 1

Non-QB MVP: WR A.J. Brown

Brown has been one of the league's most impactful players over the first half. He made history by becoming the first to go for 125-plus receiving yards in six consecutive games. He also set a new team mark for quickest player to 1,000 yards receiving (nine games). "He's on an unbelievable historic tear right now," said offensive coordinator Brian Johnson, "and it's a testament to him, who he is as a person, to how serious he is about perfecting his craft and making the most of his opportunities." -- Tim McManus -- Rank: 1

Philadelphia remains the class of the NFC -- and, for now, the league. Sunday's nail-biter win might have paved the road to the No. 1 seed in the conference and the bye that comes with it, but it also highlighted the luck factor. Dak Prescott sliced up the Eagles' embattled secondary. Luke Schoonmaker's fourth-down catch in the fourth quarter was inches from being a touchdown. Dallas scored on the subsequent drive, but Prescott's foot was out of bounds by about the same distance on a two-point conversion attempt. Philly fumbled three times and recovered the ball each time, including when D'Andre Swift coughed it up with a minute left. It felt like Dallas outplayed the Eagles over the course of 60 minutes, but Philly finished more effectively than the Cowboys -- an area where the Eagles have been better than Dallas all season. Perhaps that intangible skill is the their superpower.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 1

They beat the Cowboys, but they have to be concerned about their defense. It's having issues stopping teams. Jalen Hurts is also limited by his knee injury.

USA Today -- Rank: 2

The league's only 8-1 team, and the first to replicate such a start in consecutive seasons since Peyton Manning's Indianapolis heyday in 2006. But with gimpy QB Jalen Hurts still dragging his leg around, the bye week has arrived at a perfect time — not to mention Philly has Kansas City, Buffalo, San Francisco, Dallas and Seattle in succession on the other side of the break. Though perhaps no worry, Hurts matching Manning's mark (2008-10) with 12 consecutive regular-season wins against opponents with winning records.

The Athletic -- Rank: 2

Report card: A

Philadelphia fans are not going to be happy falling a spot after a win over the Cowboys. That's fair, but the Eagles were outgained 406-292 by Dallas on Sunday, and there are a couple of areas of concern to monitor. The Eagles have averaged fewer than 100 rushing yards in their last four games (86.8), and they are 20th in the NFL in yards per play allowed (5.3). Big picture though, they are 24-5 dating to 2022 and have established themselves as the clear favorite in the NFC.

FOX -- Rank: 1

It's always different, it's always stressful, but the Eagles win — wash, rinse, repeat. The box score isn't going to indicate the Eagles defense played particularly well against Dallas, but the way they consistently turned the Cowboys away from the end zone was impressive. The versatility and adaptability of this team are what stands out to me more than anything else going on in the NFL right now.

Yahoo! -- Rank: 2

Josh Sweat is having a great season for the Eagles. He has had at least a half-sack in six of Philadelphia's nine games. His 6.5 sacks are second on the Eagles behind Haason Reddick at 7.5. He had 11 sacks last season and is better this season. Sweat's sack on Dak Prescott in the final 30 seconds Sunday was a massive play in a huge win. Sweat was a fourth-round draft pick in 2018 and has been an absolute steal.

PFT -- Rank: 1

After the bye, they've got four solid tests.

Seattle Seahawks Week 10 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the Seattle Seahawks in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 12

Non-QB MVP: OLB Boye Mafe

Mafe would be the choice even if quarterbacks were included. He has taken the biggest second-year leap of anyone from the Seahawks' stellar 2022 draft class, recording a full sack in six straight games to tie the longest streak in franchise history. In seven games, he already has doubled his sack total from his rookie season. Mafe's sack Sunday against Baltimore forced a fumble that Seattle recovered. He ranks third in PRWR among edge players this season, behind only Micah Parsons and Myles Garrett, according to ESPN Analytics/NFL Next Gen Stats. -- Brady Henderson -- Rank: 12

Things looked fine for a bit in Baltimore, and then the avalanche hit. The Ravens even gave the Seahawks two fumbles in the first half, but Seattle scored zero points off the turnovers, with Geno Smith fumbling the second possession right back to Baltimore. It's getting harder to look past Smith's scuffles, as he's now logged eight turnovers in his past four starts. It's certainly not all on him; his offensive line struggled, and Seattle's defense produced plenty of face-palm plays, jumping offsides on fourth-and-1 and missing umpteen tackles. But to me, Smith's cold snap cracks the door on a discussion of whether Pete Carroll might have to consider going to Drew Lock at some point. We're not there yet -- the next two are winnable. However, a daunting 49ers-Cowboys-49ers-Eagles cluster awaits between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 11

It was not a good trip to Baltimore for this group. They just didn't look like a team that went in 5-2, getting dominated in all areas.

USA Today -- Rank: 12

Would not have expected the acquisition of DE Leonard Williams to coincide with Seattle surrendering 37 points and 515 yards.

The Athletic -- Rank: 9

Report card: B-plus

Adding defensive tackle Leonard Williams at the trade deadline didn't have the desired effect, at least immediately. Seattle was eighth in the NFL in rushing yards allowed (96.9 per game) entering Sunday's game. Baltimore rushed for 298, the second-most surrendered by any team in a game this season. Still, we'll give Pete Carroll the benefit of the doubt on defense, and the Seahawks still are tied for the NFC West lead.

FOX -- Rank: 12

Take a seat next to Detroit, Seattle. The Seahawks are the latest NFC contender to be personally victimized by the Baltimore Ravens — and somehow this might've been worse than what happened to the Lions. What's more depressing: giving up 298 rushing yards on defense or managing just six first downs in an entire game?

Yahoo! -- Rank: 12

Many of the Seahawks' problems Sunday can be attributed to the Ravens, who did the same things to the Lions a few weeks ago. But one thing that needs to be fixed is DK Metcalf. The Seahawks have one of the best receivers in the NFL and he's not having nearly the impact he should. He has a middling 28-454-2 line this season. Metcalf had one catch on Sunday. The Seahawks need to get him more targets and catches. Getting him back on track is the difference between the Seahawks competing with the 49ers for a division title or falling out of that race.

PFT -- Rank: 10

Drew Lock inches closer to getting a shot to not turn the ball over.

Los Angeles Rams Week 10 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the Los Angeles Rams in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 26

Non-QB MVP: DT Aaron Donald

The Rams have had to rely on their defense this season, and the young group has played better than expected. With a lot of new faces after the departures of veterans, including cornerback Jalen Ramsey and linebacker Bobby Wagner, the unit has been led by Donald. And the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year has shown up on the stat sheet, too. Entering Week 10, he ranked third in the NFL in pass rush win rate for defensive tackles. Donald had a sack on Sunday against the Packers, giving him 5.5 on the season. -- Sarah Barshop -- Rank: 27

If Matthew Stafford misses more time, it's hard to see a path for this team pulling itself out its three-game skid after the Week 10 bye. The good news is that they'll have additional time to potentially try adding to the QB room. Brett Rypien has completed less than half his passes and averaged 4.5 yards per attempt in two relief appearances for Stafford. He also lost a big fumble early in Sunday's loss to the Packers. It's hard to sustain drives with that kind of QB production in an offense predicated on getting the ball to Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua downfield. Both were quieted by a young Green Bay secondary. Credit the Rams' plucky but undermanned defense for keeping the game close on the road, but the team's limitations without a healthy No. 9 are just too glaring right now.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 24

They showed against Green Bay how limited they are without Matt Stafford. They head to their bye on a three-game losing streak.

USA Today -- Rank: 23

They've gone 1-4 since the return of WR Cooper Kupp, who's been held to fewer than 50 receiving yards in each contest of LA's three-game losing streak.

The Athletic -- Rank: 26

Report card: C

With Brett Rypien starting in place of injured Matt Stafford (thumb), the Rams gained 187 yards. That's their second-lowest total since 2020. (The lowest was 156 yards against the Packers last season with Baker Mayfield at quarterback.) Los Angeles has a bye this week, and Stafford could come back in Week 11. Stetson Bennett, who was drafted in the fourth round, remains on the non-football injury list and is not likely to return this season, Sean McVay said.

FOX -- Rank: 25

You had to figure it'd be a rough day for the Rams without Matthew Stafford, so I'm not going to judge them too harshly for that. They get the bye week to recuperate, but if Stafford's injury goes much longer than that, this starts to look like another very ugly season in L.A.

Yahoo! -- Rank: 27

After a promising start, the Rams have lost four of five. The win was over the Cardinals. Over the past two weeks they've lost by 23 and 17 points. Even the great Cooper Kupp has been disappointing lately, with 29, 21 and 48 yards in his past three games, without a touchdown in any of them. The Rams have a bye and that will help, but they're probably not going to be relevant the rest of the season.

PFT -- Rank: 27

When all else fails, polish the Super Bowl LVI trophy.

New York Giants Week 10 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the New York Giants in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 29

Non-QB MVP: DT Dexter Lawrence II

Lawrence is tied for seventh in the NFL with 14 quarterback hits. That's not supposed to happen from the nose tackle position. He has been the Giants' best and most consistent player by a wide margin, in part because almost all of their other top players have been injured at some point early this season. -- Jordan Raanan -- Rank: 30

With Daniel Jones' ACL tear coming in a loss to a team led by an interim head coach and rookie QB, the Giants' nightmare season has darkened even further than might have seemed possible. With Jones out indefinitely and Tyrod Taylor on injured reserve, Tommy DeVito overcame some rough early moments to put forward a respectable effort, and the run blocking helped spring Saquon Barkley to his best rushing average (5.6) of the season. But it's tough to summon too much excitement, with injuries crushing any hope of offensive growth and the reality of a high draft pick incoming. Sunday felt like the first time you could fairly have a conversation about the future under center, with Jones' long-term health clouding the picture and some tempting QB prospects possibly being within reach come April.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 30

With Daniel Jones out now with a knee injury, it's time to tank. Maybe they can get one of the top guys next year.

USA Today -- Rank: 31

You have to feel for injured QB Daniel Jones. You also have to feel like New York probably has buyer's remorse after extending him in the offseason. Now they might be one of, say, a dozen teams having to reconsider its QB1 plans going into 2024.

The Athletic -- Rank: 29

Report card: F

It's gotten so bad that the Giants aren't even fun to pick on anymore. Daniel Jones returned from a neck injury Sunday and promptly suffered a season-ending ACL tear. Backup quarterback Tommy DeVito gives New York a great chance to get into the top-two pick conversation, but would the Giants take a quarterback high after giving Jones a big contract in the offseason? The answer is probably yes because New York can get out of the deal relatively cheaply ($22.2 million in dead money) after next season.

FOX -- Rank: 32

At least Arizona and Carolina knew ahead of time they were likely in for tough seasons. The Giants had playoff aspirations in September, and now Daniel Jones' ACL twists the knife on what has been one of the worst years imaginable.

Yahoo! -- Rank: 31

The Giants are griping. They don't look like they have much fight. This all comes back to head coach Brian Daboll. The Giants might not win another game the rest of the season given their quarterback situation. But if they completely quit, it'll mean a lot of skepticism about Daboll going into Year 3.

PFT -- Rank: 29

Tommy DeVito doesn't deserve this.

New Orleans Saints Week 10 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the New Orleans Saints in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 15

Non-QB MVP: TE/QB Taysom Hill

Hill started the season listed as a TE, and is a quarterback sometimes -- but not enough for him to be disqualified here. He has been the best thing going the past three games as the Saints have started to come together on offense. Hill has helped fix the Saints' red zone issues with three rushing touchdowns, a receiving touchdown and a passing touchdown in the past three games. -- Katherine Terrell -- Rank: 13

The Saints continued one impressive streak and ended one bad one in Sunday's victory. Thanks to five Bears turnovers (three in the fourth quarter), New Orleans has now forced at least one turnover in each game this season. The Saints also ended a three-game turnover skid on offense, logging a clean sheet vs. Chicago. There just seems to be something missing with this team, given that it won the turnover battle 5-0 (5-1, if you count turnovers on downs) and still had to hang on late to win. The run defense struggled for a second week in a row and now faces swashbuckling Joshua Dobbs at Minnesota before the bye. Offensively, the Saints still seem to lack a true identity, but they've leaned in harder on the Taysom Hill package lately. Is this enough to take the NFC South? Maybe, but they still feel middling.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 14

They lead the NFC South after beating the Bears on Sunday. But they haven't come close to playing to their potential yet.

USA Today -- Rank: 22

Taysom Hill's 5.2 yards per rush are nearly 50% better than any of New Orleans' other regular ball carriers.

The Athletic -- Rank: 14

Report card: B

The Saints lead the NFC South, but that still doesn't equate to more than a B because of the state of the NFC South. All of New Orleans' wins have come against teams with losing records, and it was outgained by the Bears on Sunday (368 to 301). After Paulson Adebo's two interceptions against the Bears, the Saints lead the league in that category (12).

FOX -- Rank: 17

You'd like to think it'd be less stressful when you win the turnover battle 5-0. The Saints' offense still leaves a lot to be desired. And don't let the takeaways distract from the fact that the Bears moved the ball very well in New Orleans. Still, they're the only team in the NFC South that won in Week 9, and they're on top of their division.

Yahoo! -- Rank: 14

The Saints remain a strange team. With all the talent on hand, should Taysom Hill lead the team in carries and rushing yards in a too-close game against the Bears? Probably not. The Saints have as much blue-chip talent as anyone but never seem to put it all together. But with their weak remaining schedule and the continuing failures of the Falcons, the NFC South is there for the taking.

PFT -- Rank: 17

Taysom Hill keeps earning more touches.
