Earlier today at the site I released my Week 11 NFL Power Rankings. But what is only one opinion worth?
So here is a round up of how various media outlets have ranked your Philadelphia Eagles. Let's start by revisiting mine:
15) Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 21) - Philly is on a 2 game winning streak and has won 3 of their last 5. Nick Foles is playing well and the team could be primed to go on a run if they can find a way to win at home.
19. Philadelphia Eagles
Nick Foles has officially grabbed the reins in Philly, and barring injury or a revelation that he electroshocks alpacas in a secret compound, he's unlikely to hand them back. Upper-echelon safety play will punish his mad-bomber stylings at some point, but for now opponents are having to defend the whole field and Chip Kelly's O is starting to hum a bit. And Foles darn sure isn't going to run into any upper-echelon safety play in a divisional game this season. (Last Week: 21)
16) Not sure a win over Green Bay should count for a whole lot at this point. LW: 18
15) Nick Foles may be close to turning himself into the Eagles franchise quarterback. After several weeks of suffering through Michael Vick and Matt Barkley, this team is suddenly one of those dark horses who may be starting a late season surge. If I were a Cowboys fan, I'd be very concerned. I'm not though, so I'm just going to laugh. LW: 22
15) Philadelphia Eagles (Blind Power Rankings)
19. Philadelphia Eagles (5-5): The Eagles are just fine as long as they don't play at the Linc. Their post-season aspirations could be decided with next week's bout with Washington. (LW: 23)
16) Nick Foles is playing at a high level and the Eagles are a playoff contender. Two road victories can do that to a team. (LW: 21)
15. Eagles (5-5; No. 19): If they could win their home games, they’d be 9-1.
14) Usually when you say a team is totally different on the road, it’s a bad thing, but not for the Eagles. They are 5-1 on the road with a plus-8 turnover differential and 0-4 at home with a minus-6 turnover differential. (LW: 19)
Analysis: It looks like these rankings range from as high as 14 to as low as 19. The Eagles are 5-5 (.500) so right around halfway sounds correct. Philadelphia is on a two game win streak, so some outlets ranked them higher than the Dallas Cowboys, who lost big to the Saints on Sunday Night Football.
The Eagles have another opportunity to jump up when they play Washington at home this week.
