PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - NOVEMBER 26: Jalen Hurts #1 of the Philadelphia Eagles reacts after scoring the game winning touchdown in overtime against the Buffalo Bills at Lincoln Financial Field on November 26, 2023 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Another week another win. So many people continue to doubt the Eagles. Every week we hear about how if the Eagles keep playing like this, they will eventually lose. But it hasn’t happened yet. Even in the hardest part of their schedule, they continue to rack up wins. They have now beaten the Dolphins, Cowboys, Chiefs, and Bills. And were some of those wins “ugly”? Sure. But they won. It is what they do. And they are 10-1 heading into week 13.

Call them what you want. The worst 10-1 team ever. Overrated. Lucky. It doesn’t change the fact they are 10-1 despite playing the toughest schedule in the NFL. And if they are winning ugly, what does that make the teams they beat?

Yet despite being 10-1, and beating all of these good teams, they still get disrespect. Vegas has them as home underdogs this week vs the 49ers. ESPN’s nonsense FPI continues to rank them low. But none of that changes the fact they are two games ahead of everyone else in the NFL. And none of it changes the fact they are in what people call the gauntlet of their schedule and have yet to lose one of these games.

But outside of those analytics, actual human beings seem to at least be acknowledging their greatness. Even some of the usual Eagles haters had to admit these past weeks that the Eagles just have a knack for finding ways to win. And they continue to dominate the Power Rankings because it would be hard to argue a team with 3 losses is better than a team with just 1. No matter how many times that team blows out the Giants and Panthers.

So let’s take a look at the Power Rankings this week, and what some of the folks around the NFL view this Eagles team.

Here is where they landed on the Week 13 Power Rankings:
