Philadelphia Eagles Week 10 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Philadelphia Eagles rank in terms of average, best and worst:

  • Average ranking: 21.2 (21st)
  • Best ranking: 20th (ESPN)
  • Worst ranking: 22nd (Multiple)

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the Eagles in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 21

They face a wide range of outcomes in the final eight weeks. With Travis Fulgham's emergence, along with the return of Jalen Reagor, Miles Sanders and Dallas Goedert, Carson Wentz is positioned to rebound from his terrible first half of the season. It'd be no surprise to see Wentz get hot and for the Eagles to get on a bit of a roll. On the other hand, this team has no offensive identity, and Wentz leads the league in turnovers. If he continues to struggle, would Doug Pederson consider giving Jalen Hurts a shot?

CBS Sports -- Rank: 21

They come off their bye in first place and getting healthier. They are the clear favorites in the NFC East now.

USA Today -- Rank: 22

Sunday's date with the Giants might be NFC's most consequential game, in terms of playoff ramifications, on the Week 10 schedule. No, seriously.

ESPN -- Rank: 20

Recalibrated expectation: Winning the division

They're the best team in the worst division in football. Barring an implosion, Philadelphia should make the playoffs for a fourth straight season. Coming into 2020, the bar for a successful season was getting Carson Wentz his first playoff victory. While that is still possible, the injuries, roster imperfections and unexpected struggles by Wentz make that more of a long shot at this point. -- Tim McManus -- Rank: 22

Last week, Doug Pederson fielded questions as to whether he considered putting Carson Wentz on the bench during Philly's ugly win over the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. The coach said he had "a lot of trust and faith" in his QB1, which you believe -- but you also have to wonder if that trust and faith has been shaken in a way Pederson would have never imagined in August. Wentz has been making punishing mistakes since Week 1, and his turnovers against a terrible Dallas defense made you think maybe Ben DiNucci was somehow playing for both teams. The numbers are grim: Wentz reached the Eagles' Week 9 bye leading the league in turnovers (16), interceptions (12) and sacks (32). He hasn't been accurate or explosive. In most years, his play would've ruined Philly's season. Instead, they're in first place in the NFC East. 2020, man.
