- Worst ranking: 22nd (USA Today)
Below you will find a Week 5 roundup for the Eagles in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.
The Athletic -- Rank: 21
Just as we all predicted: Travis Fulgham, Alex Singleton, Genard Avery and Cre'Von LeBlanc leading the Eagles to an upset win and first place in the NFC East. What I'm buying: the Eagles' defensive line is legit. They produced five sacks and 15 quarterback hits in their win against the 49ers. What I'm not buying: the Eagles found answers offensively. Their offensive performance ranked 25th out of 30 teams statistically in Week 4. It's amazing how one play can shape our impressions of what's happening with a team. Carson Wentz delivered a perfectly placed pass to Fulgham for a 42-yard touchdown. If he's even a little bit off or if Fulgham fails to come down with the catch, we're likely talking about a winless team with major offensive issues. Instead, the Eagles have life, but matchups against the Steelers and Ravens await.
CBS Sports -- Rank: 18
They are in first place. Can you believe it? They've been a disaster for most of this season, but winning at San Francisco was impressive for this beat-up team.
USA Today -- Rank: 22
Their nine turnovers (including QB Carson Wentz's seven INTs) pace league, yet only three have occurred in last two weeks – games Philly hasn't lost. All said, just middling enough to pace NFC East.
ESPN -- Rank: 20
FPI chance to make playoffs: 25.4%
Where's the respect for the division-leading Birds? OK, they're not very good, but that's basically a requirement to play in the NFC East, which has a combined record of 3-12-1 through four weeks. The Cowboys can move the football, but their defense has allowed a league-high 146 points. Dallas doesn't deserve to be heavy favorites in anything right now, unless we're voting for most overhyped team of the past decade. -- Tim McManus
NFL.com -- Rank: 19
Carson Wentz's 42-yard touchdown strike to Travis Fulgham (who?) wiped away a night of frustration for the undermanned Eagles, who moved into first place in the woebegone NFC East with a 25-20 win over the 49ers on Sunday Night Football. Wentz got it done without his top four wide receivers, tight end Dallas Goedert, left tackle Jason Peters and -- for parts of the night -- right tackle Lane Johnson, who was in and out of the lineup with an ankle issue. Fulgham began the weekend on the Eagles' practice squad, while Alex Singleton -- the linebacker who plays primarily on special teams -- had the game-clinching pick-six on the ensuing series. If the Eagles turn their season around, this will be remembered as the flashpoint.
