Week 14 NFL Power Rankings

Randall Cobb

4. Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 6)

If the Eagles had to prove to the world that they will survive the home stretch of the season without quarterback Nick Foles, one should look no further than their blowout win in Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. Thoroughly dominant throughout the entire game, Philadelphia grabbed hold of the NFC East division lead and now holds a one-game lead, as well as a tiebreaker, over the Cowboys. Philadelphia will now host the surging Seahawks in what should be a fantastic showdown between the Eagles’ offense and Seattle’s defense — which has allowed a combined six points in its last two games. The Eagles are now the class of the NFC East, and have solidified themselves in the upper echelon of the NFL.
