2021 NFL Power Rankings: Philadelphia Eagles

Throughout the 2021 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 13 roundup for the Eagles in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 23

The Eagles have discovered an offensive identity since the last check-in, based largely around a dominant rushing attack. They have racked up 1,078 yards on the ground since Week 8, by far the most in the NFL. (The Colts are second with 841.) The Eagles had won three of four using that formula before a costly 13-7 loss to the Giants on Sunday in which Jalen Hurts threw a career-high three interceptions. Philadelphia's playoff chances dipped to 26% with the defeat, according to ESPN's Football Power Index. But the Eagles have the easiest closing schedule in the NFL, and they should have more good Sundays than bad to finish the regular season -- so long as they can keep the turnovers down. -- Tim McManus

NFL.com -- Rank: 22

The Eagles' momentum fluttered away in the winds of the Meadowlands. Jalen Hurts threw three interceptions, Boston Scott had a costly fumble and Jalen Reagor missed two opportunities to play hero in the final minute of a grim 13-7 loss to the Giants. Reagor let two well-placed Hurts passes clang off his hands near the goal line -- tough catches, sure, but balls that a player drafted one spot ahead of Justin Jefferson is expected to come down with. Hurts wasn't blameless: The second-year QB tried to force the action too often and threw the ball up for grabs in multiple instances, with calamitous results. The league's easiest closing schedule will help the Eagles in their push for the playoffs, but Sunday's preventable loss could haunt them.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 21

The resurgence of the offense came to a halt against the Giants. Jalen Hurts really struggled.

USA Today -- Rank: 21

Admirable of WR Jalen Reagor to face the media music after he probably dropped two TD passes Sunday in a six-point loss. Less admirable that Philly is putting him in that position and not targeting rookie DeVonta Smith instead.

The Athletic -- Rank: 23

Problem area: Turnovers. In their first nine games, the Eagles turned the ball over seven times. In their last three games, they've turned the ball over six times. Jalen Hurts threw three interceptions in a loss to the Giants Sunday, but those weren't the only costly mistakes. Jalen Reagor, the team's 2020 first-round pick, dropped game-winning touchdowns on back-to-back plays at the end. Philly's playoff chances are starting to slip away, but with two games against Washington and others against the Jets and Giants, the Eagles can climb back into contention if they stop beating themselves.
