With their loss to the Redskins this week, the Eagles fell to 2-2 and slid the middle of most power rankings.

SBNation.com's ranks slide them down 3 spots to #14, but still ahead of the Redskins. Why? Because you lost a game where your starting QB was injured doesn't necessarily mean you're a bad team...

Fox Sports dropped the Eagles down 9 spots to #20 below the 1-2 Cowboys.

It's a good thing that the rest of teams in the NFC East aren't playing consistently good football. The Eagles have to be kicking themselves for last week's loss to the Redskins. The injuries continue to pile up on offense, so it will be interesting to see if Philadelphia can overcome them

Just to show how subjective these ranks are early in the season, the 2-2 New York Giants are #11 in the Fox ranks.

CBS has the Eagles dropping two spots to #15 ahead Dallas and New York.
