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 4 roundup for the Eagles in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 27

What we learned: They are a complete mess from top to bottom. Howie Roseman built an old and expensive roster. Doug Pederson, a coach who wrote a book titled "Fearless" after the Eagles won the Super Bowl, played for a tie in overtime against the Bengals. And Carson Wentz looks completely broken. Owner Jeffrey Lurie believes strongly that offensive efficiency is the key to sustaining success in the NFL. The Eagles' offense right now ranks 28th in EPA per snap. The only question now is whether this was rock bottom or whether more hits are coming for an organization that seems to have lost its way.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 24

They have been the league's biggest disappointment so far. Yet at 0-2-1 they aren't done yet in a bad division.

USA Today -- Rank: 29

Need a silver lining, Philly fans? RB Miles Sanders' 119 yards from scrimmage per game rank him in top five league-wide. More Miles, Iggles.

ESPN -- Rank: 22

What we got wrong: Carson Wentz's success down the stretch last season would be a launching point in his career.

We're still awaiting liftoff. Wentz has been one of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL statistically through three games. He is tied for the most interceptions (six), is dead last in QB rating (63.9) and is 29th in completion percentage (59.8) for the 0-2-1 Eagles. Experts see issues in his mechanics and there's plenty of evidence that Wentz is pressing, leading to some bad decision-making. Coach Doug Pederson intends to simplify the game plan in order to "unclutter" Wentz's mind moving forward. Perhaps that helps, but so far it's been ugly. -- Tim McManus

NFL.com -- Rank: 23

Sunday was supposed to be a get-right game for the Eagles. Instead, it ended with Doug Pederson waving a white flag, punting to ensure a tie in overtime against the Bengals. It's not fair to put all of Philly's problems on the quarterback, but Carson Wentz has been a major issue. He deserves credit for engineering a touchdown drive at the end of regulation to force OT, but Wentz delivered another sloppy performance that left big plays and points on the field. He's up to six interceptions in three games -- just one less than he had in 16 starts in 2019. On Monday, Pederson wisely dismissed any talk of rookie Jalen Hurts threatening Wentz's job, but it's a minor disaster that the coach is even getting that question after Week 3.
