2012 NFL power rankings: Philadelphia Eagles remain in top 10 after loss

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Eagles have dropped in several power ranking polls.

The Philadelphia Eagles (2-1) have fallen in several power ranking polls following Sunday's disappointing 27-6 loss to the Arizona Cardinals (3-0).

Coming into the week off an impressive come-from-behind victory against the heavily favored Baltimore Ravens, both SB Nation and ESPN ranked the Eagles as a top-five team. Now, both polls have dropped the team several spots as has NFL.com, who ranked them as the seventh best team in the league coming into Week 3. Despite the drop, all three polls still have the team listed in the top-10.

SB Nation commented in their poll that the Eagles' original top-five ranking may have been too high. As was featured on Bleeding Green Nation, the team's struggles have left many with the sense that the Eagles are lucky to be 2-1. ESPN commented on the team's turnover problems and questioned whether Michael Vick is on the hot seat.

Here are where the Eagles are ranked in the polls:

SB Nation: No. 10

NFL.com: No. 10

ESPN.com: No. 9
