2020 NFL Power Rankings: Philadelphia Eagles

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:

Below you will find a Week 14 roundup for the Eagles in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 28

Best-case scenario: Jalen Hurts looks like a Russell Wilson clone. Is this a huge long shot? Of course. But we're talking best-case scenarios here. Let's be clear. The Eagles should not base major decisions off of a four-game sample with Hurts. But what they'll be looking for is information that can help them make smart decisions about their quarterback situation in the offseason. The Eagles have been among the league's least watchable teams this season. Hurts just offering some entertainment value should be considered a win.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 28

They just can't seem to win a game. That begs this question: Is this the end for Doug Pederson? It's Jalen Hurts time at quarterback.

USA Today -- Rank: 28

We've seen the future in Philadelphia, and it's named Jalen ... though not sure if that means rookie QB Jalen Hurts or rookie WR Jalen Reagor -- though the duo did hook up on a 34-yard pass Sunday. Could be more of same in Week 14 with Hurts taking over for Carson Wentz.

ESPN -- Rank: 27

Person with most at stake: Head coach Doug Pederson

It's hard to believe that after delivering the city its first Super Bowl in 2017 and making the playoffs three years straight, Pederson's job could be in jeopardy, but that shows you just how brutal things have gotten in Philadelphia this year. Carson Wentz -- the team's franchise quarterback and Pederson's No. 1 responsibility -- is broken. The offense has turned stale and sloppy. And now there's a full-blown quarterback controversy. Pederson needs to string together some wins and get either Wentz or Jalen Hurts playing at a high level down the stretch to cool off his seat. -- Tim McManus

NFL.com -- Rank: 28

Doug Pederson had no choice. Carson Wentz was laboring once again, and the Eagles were going nowhere in a flat performance against the Packers. So Pederson pulled the trigger on the move he never wanted to make -- replacing Wentz with rookie Jalen Hurts in the second half of an eventual 30-16 loss. On Tuesday, the coach confirmed what most suspected: Hurts will officially replace Wentz as starting quarterback on Sunday against the Saints. It marks the completion of a stunning fall from grace for Wentz, who entered his fifth pro season as the team's locked-and-loaded franchise cornerstone under center. Welcome to the great unknown in Philadelphia.
