Another NFL season approaches. Is it possible that we’re more excited about the Philadelphia Eagles than we were last season? Look around friends. The game’s most loyal fan base is pumped, and the national media is spending a lot of time talking about them.

Long-time NFL writer and insider Peter King has dedicated a lot of time to writing about the Birds over these past few months. Recently, he also gave them some high praise.

Eagles news: Philadelphia tops Peter King’s most recent NFL Power Ranking.

There’s no need to adjust those desktop computer and laptop monitors or brighten those displays on your tablets and cellular devices. The Eagles have continued to dominate the national headlines.

Recently King and Mike Florio discussed a little Eagles football. Sean Desai, Jalen Carter, and Jonathan Gannon were all a part of the discussion.

In his May 8th edition of NBC Sports’ Football Morning in America column, King tried his hand at an early NFL 32-team power ranking. The Eagles top his list. Here are some of his reasons for making that decision.

"The Eagles averaged 34.7 points per game in the playoffs, have adequately compensated for losses of both coordinators, are not worse at any position (amazing on the defensive line, considering they had a 69-sack year last year and lost Javon Hargrave), have an offensive line that should keep upright a rising superstar QB-of-the-future at the top of his game, and will field two top-15 NFL wideouts entering their age-25 (DeVonta Smith) and age-26 (A.J. Brown) seasons."

Just in case you’re interested, the Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals, San Francisco 49ers, and Buffalo Bills rounded out his top five. The rest of the top ten included the Detroit Lions, Baltimore Ravens, Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, and Dallas Cowboys. Philly plays all of those teams minus the Bengals. This should be an interesting campaign.
