2012 NFL Power Rankings: 6-game losing streak has Eagles tumbling

The Philadelphia Eagles are falling in every NFL power ranking as they struggle through a losing streak that's at six games and counting. Most placed Philadelphia around No. 27, almost one of the league's worst five teams.

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Philadelphia Eagles might have lost six consecutive games, but they're still not considered one of the league's five worst teams in most Week 12 power rankings.

Nothing is going right for the Eagles: they're on their longest losing streak of Andy Reid's 14-year tenure, with the last four losses coming by 10 points or more. Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins was probably the worst of the bunch, as it came against an NFC East rival in the Washington Redskins, and was still a 25-point blowout despite the Redskins not being an elite team by any stretch of the imagination. And with Nick Foles starting at quarterback and LeSean McCoy possibly out with a concussion, things are likely to keep getting worse.

Joel Thorman of SB Nation didn't mince words when dropping Philadelphia from No. 19 to No. 27 in his Week 12 NFL Power Rankings. "Train Wreck," he writes. "Blow it all up."

Most other rankers put the Eagles around there: ESPN and NFL.com also put Philadelphia at No. 27, with CBS being slightly more optimistic by putting them at No. 25 and Fox going the other way at No. 28.
