The Philadelphia Eagles failed to distinguish themselves in the NFC East.
Other than the Dallas Cowboys, Week 3 wasn’t a good week for the Philadelphia Eagles and the NFC East as a whole. ‘Big D’ was the only team in the division that won their Week 2 matchup and even then, it isn’t as if they’re proving that they’re the cream of the division’s crop.
The Cowboys pounced on an onside kick and thanks to a last-ditch effort, prevailed over the Atlanta Falcons. They’re 1-1 now, as is the Washington Football Team, which couldn’t get much going on offense and got beaten by an Arizona Cardinals team that’s becoming really fun to watch. You can thank sophomore quarterback Kyle Murray for that.
The New York Giants didn’t fare any better and even though they played hard, just like they did in Week 1, they still dropped their game against the Chicago Bears. What made their loss even more disheartening was the fact they lost their best player. It will now be even more challenging for them to improve their standing in the division and in the conference.
The Eagles don’t have much to brag about heading into this Week’s power ranking as they sit at 0-2. Their game versus the Los Angeles Rams was filled with mistakes with their execution. That formula won’t get you far in a very competitive conference. Here is Week 3’s NFC East power ranking as we head towards another weekend of football.
