NFL Power Rankings Week 11: Eagles Breach The Top 5

The Eagles smacked around the Redskins on national TV last night and clearly the power rankers were paying attention. The Eagles moved up in every national poll, but some moreso than others.

Our own SBNation ranks has the Eagles at #5, up 5 spots

FOX still buys the 6-3 Giants and has them up at #4 while the Eagles are down at #9. They also have The Colts, who the Eagles beat and are also 6-2, ahead of the Eagles at #6. Go figure

Philadelphia got its revenge from an earlier loss to Washington in a major way. Michael Vick might have put together one of the best games of all time for a quarterback in that game. We're starting to see why head coach Andy Reid wanted Vick last year.

Conversely, the Sporting News has the Eagles above the Falcons, Giants, & Colts at #6. They also picked a bizarre thing to highlight given what happened last night.

Few teams use a fullback so well, and Owen Schmitt has shined as a blocker in Leonard Weaver's stead.

Sure, Owen Schmitt has done a nice job... but that's who you single out?

[Note by JasonB, 11/16/10 5:50 PM EST ] New ranks

Real Clear Sports, who takes the average ranks of a number of national polls has the Eagles ranked at #6 this week.

Fanhouse has the Eagles all the way up at #2.

Be afraid of Michael Vick. Against the Redskins, Vick threw for three touchdowns and ran for two more -- and that was before halftime. The Eagles set a franchise record for first-quarter and first-half points, and did everything right while trashing division foe Washington Monday night. A date with the Giants next week gives the Eagles a chance to solidify themselves as the class of the NFC East, if not the entire conference.

CBS has the Eagles up three spots to #4 this week.

The way Mike Vick is playing, it's hard to count them out of anything. He's elevated his game in a big way. They play so fast on offense.
