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

The Athletic -- Rank: 22

Through eight games, Carson Wentz leads the league in interceptions (12) and sacks (32), and he's tied for second with seven fumbles. He's 34th out of 38 quarterbacks in completion percentage above expectation. Wentz is 32nd in adjusted net yards per attempt (ANY/A), 28th in QBR and 29th in EPA per dropback. There are a lot of problems with the Eagles, stemming from the front office to the coaching staff. But Wentz playing the worst football of his career as a fifth-year starter has to be among the most disappointing for Eagles fans.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 19

They are in first place. That's the good news. The bad news is they haven't looked that good in getting there. At some point, Carson Wentz has to be better.

USA Today -- Rank: 24

According to Pro Football Focus, second-year WR Travis Fulgham is Philly's top-rated player. Four TDs and 87 receiving yards per game out of nowhere will do that for you.

ESPN -- Rank: 19

Reason for optimism: WR Travis Fulgham

He was called up from the practice squad out of sheer necessity prior to Week 4. All he has done since is post the most receiving yards in the NFL (435) over the ensuing five weeks while hauling in four touchdowns. Cut from three teams since being drafted by the Detroit Lions in 2019, Fulgham has been a revelation for the Eagles and has quickly earned the trust of quarterback Carson Wentz. Philadelphia suddenly has an intriguing group of young wideouts in Fulgham, Jalen Reagor and John Hightower. -- Tim McManus

NFL.com -- Rank: 21

In this passage, we will focus on Sunday night's win over the Cowboys, and then never speak of that hideous game ever again. Deal? OK, so the Eagles are very lucky to be in first place after a comically uneven performance against their division rival. Facing a historically inept Dallas defense, Carson Wentz had three turnovers in a grisly first half. Patrick Daugherty of Rotoworld put it beautifully a few weeks back when he wrote that Wentz has become an "even more demented" version of Ryan Fitzpatrick. This can make Wentz an intriguing watch on Sundays, but it's not pretty, and it's occasionally quite grim. He needs to be more consistent and make far fewer mistakes before we start to take the Eagles seriously.
