Today let's check in where the experts around the country think the Eagles rank heading into this week 4.

ESPN Rank #4 up from 10 - Aside from all the T.O. stuff, this Sunday's game between the Cowboys and Eagles should be a great game. The Eagles are playing great football and can stamp themselves as the clear team to beat in the NFC East with a win.

CBS Rank #6 up from 10 - They got rid of the pesky Packers in a poorly played game, but now comes the real fun. It's T.O. week. I can hardly wait.

Real Football 365 Rank #7 up from #11 - Although the Eagles only beat the lowly Packers, Donovan McNabb has emerged as this season's best quarterback. If Brian Westbrook can regain health, Philly will be a definite Super Bowl contender.

Fox Sports Rank #9 same as last week - No Westbrook. No Sheppard. No Hood. No problem. The Eagles cruised on Monday night, setting up a clash with Dallas that you should hear a little about in the next week. After all, it's Al Singleton's return to Philly! Yep, the linebacker played for Temple 10 years ago.

Sports Illustrated Rank #11 same as last week - Well, Donovan McNabb has been in the same system, under the same head coach, for eight years now, and there are QBs in the league who would pay serious money to get a deal like that going for them. And yet he still has strange moments of inaccuracy, as the Packers game pointed out. When he's wild, he's usually wild low. His ball takes a dive on him. It was a problem in the first half Monday night, until the Packers DBs got worn out, and then the game was a romp.
