NFL power rankings 2012: Eagles drop in SB Nation poll

Al Bello

A weekly review of where the Philadelphia Eagles stand in the SB Nation power rankings poll. Do you agree with their ranking?

The Philadelphia Eagles have dropped in the power rankings poll at SB Nation to the No. 30 overall position.

Fresh off the team's 10th loss of the season, curator Joel Thorman moved the Eagles down two positions from last week's poll to their current standing. The team is only ranked higher than the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-12) and Kansas City Chiefs (2-12).

Thorman's ranking was inspired by the Eagles' tumultuous defeat at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night.

After scoring 13 unanswered points in the second quarter, Philadelphia carried a 13-10 lead into halftime. However, the team failed to continue that effort in the second half, allowing the Bengals to record 24 unanswered points of their own. Cincinnati ultimately won the game by a final score of 34-13.

With only two games remaining in the 2012 season, Thorman was able to offer some solace for Eagles fans in his explanation of their ranking:

It'll be over soon. Their worst season in more than a decade is ending soon.
