Well, at least the Philadelphia Eagles aren’t the NFC East’s worst team.

Seven games are behind us. Nine games remain, and by the looks of things, the Philadelphia Eagles don’t have any plans of steering us away from the concerns that we had before the season began. They’re 2-5. They’re getting worse, not better.

Jalen Hurts isn’t improving. At best, he’s leveled off. The head coach, Nick Sirianni, isn’t getting better. Like his team, he’s regressing, and no sign of better days is visible.

Here’s the good news though. Believe it or not, an 11-point loss in Week 7 that felt like a 30-point blowout doesn’t knock them down and into the cellar of a bad NFC East Division.

Are you interested? We thought you might be. Here are your NFL Power Rankings after seven weeks of professional football.

. Detroit Lions. 32. team. 50. . 0-7

Never before has it been this difficult to put an 0-7 team in last place because, even though there are no statistics to back up this statement, it feels like the Detroit Lions can beat the six teams that precede them in this power ranking.

Rookie head coach Dan Campbell is still in search of his first win, but something must be said for his team taking both the Baltimore Ravens and Los Angeles Rams to the brink of an upset. Don’t sleep in the Lions. They’re improving each week.
