Fly Eagles Nation NFC East Power Rankings – Week 2

This will be a weekly series by Fly Eagles Nation to discuss the NFC East power rankings. There will be risers, fallers, and those who will remain the same in their quest for NFC East supremacy.

Let’s Fly Eagles Nation!

With Week One of the NFL season in the books, let’s take a look at how the NFC East stacks up heading into Week Two!

1. Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles are at number one in our rankings for two straight weeks, and there were some good, some okay, and some ugly plays on Sunday against Detroit.

Let’s start with the good. The offense looked sharp and in control for much of the game. The connection between Jalen Hurts and A.J. Brown looks very encouraging along with Miles Sanders and the running game looking like a very strong group, as expected.

The okay: the defense had a stretch where they looked good and periods where they looked lost, so they will need to improve.

The ugly: Inconsistency and play calling will be the concern moving forward with Jonathan Gannon’s defense, as they almost let the game slip away. All in all, there’s things to work on, but the offense put up 38 points, won on the road, and played in a ruckus environment.

2. Washington Commanders

The Commanders had a very solid day against the Jacksonville Jaguars in their home opener. Carson Wentz threw for 313 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions on the day. He played mostly well but also had some questionable decision making. Carson can be really good when he limits or eliminates the questionable plays, so there’s no denying the talent he possesses.

The offensive line and running game were solid, but the wide receivers stole the show in this one. “Scary” Terry McLaurin and rookie wideout Jahan Dotson both had great games with 98 yards and three touchdowns between them. The defense was up and down, but solid for the most part. Washington had an encouraging start for to the season and the fan base.

3. New York Giants

New York pulled out of Tennessee with a huge upset win. Brian Daboll and his team held their own all day against the betting favorite Titans. Saquan had a BIG day and the defense held its own against the vaunted Tennessee running attack. Daniel Jones won’t wow you, but when the defense keeps it close, he seems to make enough plays for the Giants to have a chance.

For this offense to be successful the offensive line will need to continue to find chemistry and build on a good performance combined with Saquan Barkley staying healthy – which has been an issue in the past. The defense wasn’t stifling but they kept the offense in the game all afternoon and that was just enough today. Brian Daboll will want consistency (especially at the QB position) from his team moving forward, but an encouraging win to build on nonetheless.

4. Dallas Cowboys

Usually you save the best for last, but not in the case of the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys did nothing to relieve the concerns most folks had going into the season. The offensive line looked overmatched all night, the running game suffered, and the passing game was horrid, whether Dak was in or not. They just weren’t on the same page in Week One and that trend may continue as Dallas heads into the next 4-6 weeks without the aforementioned Dak.

Dak Prescott requires surgery to repair his right thumb due to an injury sustained on Sunday night. Cooper Rush will slot into the the starting role for the foreseeable future, though Jerry may decide otherwise after seeing how Rush performs. The defense was okay, but Micah Parsons is the real deal and he can affect the game in spurts as he did Sunday night. Parsons won’t be enough for the Cowboys on his own though. The Dallas Cowboys have plenty of issues to sort out by Sunday, but is their season already over?


FINAL: @TomBrady and the @Buccaneers start the season with a primetime victory. #TBvsDAL pic.twitter.com/idx8cS26tq — NFL (@NFL) September 12, 2022
