Week 11 Power Rankings Roundup- Did The Bye Week Help The Eagles?
The Eagles come out of the bye week 8-1, the best record in the NFL. Hopefully, the bye week helped them get a bit healthier. We will see if it helped them in that way on Monday when they play the Chiefs. But what is most important is they go into week 11 in a great position in both their division and conference. They led the NFC East by 2 games, and the NFC by 1 game. They are the only 1 loss team in the entire NFL. Have there been issues? Sure. But every team has issues, the Eagles just win despite them.
In terms of the NFC Race, the bye week did nothing to help the Eagles. The Cowboys, 49ers, Lions, and Seahawks all won. And 3 of them looked pretty good in the process of doing so. Granted the Cowboys were playing the Giants who may just be the worst team in the NFL. But still, in terms of where they stand in the NFC, things got tighter.
Still, they are in a very good spot. And while their schedule gets harder, so does the schedule of most of their competition. The Cowboys don’t get to play the Giants again. Instead, they eventually have games vs the Lions, Dolphins, and Bills, plus the Eagles. The 49ers still have to play the Ravens, the Seahawks twice, and the Eagles. And while the Eagles have a tough 5 game stretch, they finish out their year with two games vs the Giants and a game vs the Cardinals. The Lions are the only NFC team you could say has an easy schedule the rest of the way.
But are they still on top of the Power Rankings after the bye week? Or did having the week off make the National Media forget how good they are?
