Below you will find a Week 15 roundup for the Eagles in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.
The Athletic -- Rank: 27
Jalen Reagor's rookie season (302 yards in eight games) is in line with what we've seen historically from wide receivers, and he's improved as the season's gone on. But it's impossible for Eagles fans to be that excited, knowing the team took Reagor 21st, one spot ahead of Jefferson. Reagor had two catches for 46 yards in the Eagles' upset over the Saints, and given the state of the NFC East, their season isn't over quite yet.
CBS Sports -- Rank: 24
Going to Jalen Hurts paid off with an upset victory over the Saints. He gave them some offensive life - and they are still alive.
USA Today -- Rank: 21
Rookie QB Jalen Hurts certainly provided a spark, perhaps most notably igniting a run game that exploded for a season-high 246 yards.
ESPN -- Rank: 24
Carson Wentz declined dramatically in 2020, plummeting toward the bottom in most statistical categories for QBs before being replaced in the lineup by rookie Jalen Hurts. Although there is plenty of blame to spread around, the negative plays brought on by Wentz's turnovers (19) and sacks (50) put the Eagles on bad footing all too frequently. -- Tim McManus
NFL.com -- Rank: 25
Doug Pederson turned to Jalen Hurts believing the rookie quarterback could spark an Eagles offense that had flatlined under Carson Wentz. The gamble paid off in a 24-21 upset win over the Saints. Hurts threw a pretty touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery and rushed for 106 yards against a stout New Orleans defense. Miles Sanders also crossed the century mark in a 246-yard rushing effort for Philly, the team's biggest day on the ground in six years. On Monday, Pederson made it official, announcing that Hurts would remain in the starting lineup for a Week 15 matchup against the Cardinals. The Eagles' 4-8-1 record is grisly, but they aren't out of the NFC East race yet. Hurts represents hope.
