Philadelphia Eagles Week 11 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: 23.8 (24th)
  • Best ranking: 21st (ESPN)
  • Worst ranking: 26th (Multiple)

Below you will find a Week 11 roundup for the Eagles in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 22

Amazing sequence in the second quarter. The Eagles had a third-and-1 from the Giants' 41. Carson Wentz took the snap from under center, but the offensive linemen stepped on his toes and he fell down for a 4-yard sack. The Eagles lined up to go for it on fourth-and-5 but just took an intentional delay of game before punting on fourth-and-10. What a mess. The offense ranks 28th overall, and the defense got gashed by Daniel Jones. Their next four opponents have a combined record of 26-10.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 24

Just when they get guys back, seemingly ready to make a push, they play awful in losing to the Giants. How can you figure this team out? I can't.

USA Today -- Rank: 26

Mathematically, they remain in the NFC East driver's seat. They're also about to face five consecutive teams each sporting at least six wins. Little wonder coach Doug Pederson is "pissed off" following another missed opportunity.

ESPN -- Rank: 21

What would they take back: Not trading for DeAndre Hopkins

The Eagles and Texans discussed a Hopkins trade before he was dealt to the Cardinals. Given the compensation Houston was requesting (apparently greater than the package it accepted from Arizona) and the amount of money the cap-strapped Eagles would have to commit to the wide receiver, they decided to replenish in the draft instead. While that approach might work out long term, it's hard not to watch that ridiculous Hail Mary grab between three defenders on Sunday and think of what might have been. -- Tim McManus -- Rank: 26

Doug Pederson can't run from it now. The Eagles are broken on offense, and time's running out to get it fixed. Philly's attack hit another low point on Sunday in a 27-17 loss to the Giants, going the entire game without converting a single third down (0-for-9). The Eagles hadn't "achieved" that feat in 16 years -- they're the first team to end a game without a single third-down conversion this season. This latest ignominy came despite the return of Miles Sanders, who shared the field with first-round pick Jalen Reagor, breakout wide receiver Travis Fulgham and tight end Dallas Goedert. Carson Wentz had most of his weapons, and the Giants weren't exactly sending Lawrence Taylor his way. The problem, it turns out, is that the Eagles can't get out of their own way.
