Philadelphia Eagles Week 13 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: 26.2 (26th)
  • Best ranking: 23rd (ESPN)
  • Worst ranking: 28th (CBS Sports)

Below you will find a Week 13 roundup for the Eagles in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 27

Below expectations: At his best, Doug Pederson is a great play-caller and a head coach who builds strong relationships with his players. He still has the second part of that. Despite the Eagles' failures, they still play hard and don't appear to have any serious locker room issues. But the offense has been a disaster, ranking 30th in overall efficiency. Carson Wentz has regressed, and Pederson has shown no ability to find answers. The Eagles have made plenty of personnel mistakes, and Wentz is a mess, but this has easily been Pederson's worst coaching job.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 28

The offense just isn't good enough. The questions about Carson Wentz are real as they continue to go in the wrong direction.

USA Today -- Rank: 27

This offense is truly unwatchable, though abject blocking really is contributing to QB Carson Wentz's season of despair.

ESPN -- Rank: 23

Most important game remaining: Week 17 vs. Washington

The Football Team is tied with the Giants atop the division at 4-7 -- with the Eagles right behind -- and should be in contention the rest of the way despite a pretty challenging schedule. Somebody has to win this dreadful division, and this game in Philadelphia could decide which team goes to the playoffs. -- Tim McManus -- Rank: 27

The Eagles faced the league's worst-ranked pass defense on Monday night and looked like they were playing on a 120-yard field going uphill both ways. Doug Pederson told reporters Tuesday that he was given no assurances he would keep his job through the end of the season -- a stunning admission for the head coach who brought the Eagles their only Super Bowl win less than three years ago. The bigger question: How much can you pin on Pederson when Carson Wentz is the very obvious problem? Check out this tidbit from NFL Research: Since 1950, Wentz is the sixth QB -- and only one under age 30 -- to have a passer rating more than 24 points below his combined rating over the prior three seasons. Wentz has collapsed. Making Pederson the sacrificial lamb feels more than a little unfair.
