Below you will find a Week 4 roundup for the Eagles in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 24

Jalen Hurts was lights out in Week 1 and cooled considerably in Week 2, and the numbers landed him right in the middle heading into Monday night. He has been extremely effective with his legs (144 rushing yards and a TD) while getting the ball out quicker and with better accuracy in the passing game. And he didn't turn the ball over in the first two games, before throwing two interceptions on Monday. If he can play more like he did the first two tilts, the Eagles will end up in a much better place than most predicted at the start of the season. Greater consistency as a passer will be the key to Hurts' success. -- Tim McManus -- Rank: 22

The Eagles will not enjoy watching film of a dispiriting 41-21 beatdown at the hands of the Cowboys on Monday night. The Philadelphia offense never got in gear, the defense gave up too many big plays, and a general air of sloppiness permeated the air for an Eagles team that was flagged 13 times for 86 yards. A defensive touchdown early and garbage-time score late made the final tally slightly more respectable, but the Eagles need to get better on both sides of the ball if they want to stay in the NFC East race. The road ahead is foreboding: Over the next four weeks, Philly gets last season's Super Bowl teams (the Chiefs and Bucs) and two undefeated squads (Panthers and Raiders). Buckle up.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 24

With two straight losses, they are reeling now. The showing against the Cowboys was awful. They couldn't stop Dallas and they couldn't move the ball. They got abused.

USA Today -- Rank: 24

Jalen Hurts jerseys have been flying off the shelves recently, but you still have to wonder if they're good long-term investments -- especially in Philadelphia.

The Athletic -- Rank: 24

Surprise! Three weeks into the Nick Sirianni era, the Eagles have no offensive identity. Kudos to Jalen Hurts for accepting blame for the offensive ineptitude Monday night against Dallas, but this is far bigger than him. Who are the Eagles? What is the actual offensive plan for Hurts? No one should have expected Hurts or the Eagles to be a refined product this early into what could be a long rebuild, but you'd have hoped for more of a plan than motivational sayings and just hoping to keep up with more established offenses like the Cowboys.
