Are the Eagles Still Ranked Ahead of the Cowboys in the NFL Power Rankings?

As one of the season’s most highly anticipated games, the Philadelphia Eagles’ defeat to the Dallas Cowboys turned out to be a one-sided affair, with a final score of 33-13 at AT&T Stadium on Sunday.

This loss pushed the Eagles out of the top spot in the NFC East and marked the second consecutive week in which they were outplayed by an elite NFC team, following a 42-19 home loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Dec. 3. Despite these consecutive lopsided losses, Philadelphia only dropped to No. 3 in Sports Illustrated’s power rankings.

At 10-3, the Eagles are still one spot ahead of the 10-3 Cowboys, who were ranked No. 4. “Yes, still, momentarily, I like the Eagles a little bit better than the Cowboys, even though Dallas’s victory on Sunday night was decisive,” SI writes.

The attrition of the season has taken a toll on Philadelphia in its last two games. The Eagles faced a grueling five-game stretch against the Cowboys, Chiefs, Bills, and the 49ers, going 3-2 in these matchups.

The schedule now eases for them as they face the Seahawks, Cardinals, and the Giants, none of whom are over .500. Philadelphia went through a similar stretch last season, facing back-to-back losses to the Cowboys and Saints, but eventually finishing as the No. 1 seed for the playoffs and then went through the NFC to the Super Bowl.

With four games left and a slightly easier schedule, the Eagles are well-positioned to make a strong comeback and secure the No. 1 seed again. Their remaining opponents have losing records, giving the Eagles a good chance to win the NFC East. In contrast, the Cowboys have a tougher road ahead, facing the Bills, Dolphins, and Lions in their next three games.

San Francisco, the No. 1 seed in the NFC, will face the top AFC team, the Baltimore Ravens, on Dec. 25. If the Eagles make the most of their easier schedule compared to the 49ers and Cowboys, they could potentially find themselves at the top of the conference again.

The Eagles will look to end their losing streak on Monday Night Football when they face the Seahawks at 8:15 p.m. ET at Lumen Field.
