2012 NFL power rankings: Eagles finish at No. 28

The Philadelphia Eagles finished their disappointing season at No. 28 in SB Nation's NFL power rankings.

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles finished their season far below expectations with a 4-12 record and ended up ranked No. 28 in the SB Nation NFL power rankings from Joel Thorman. The worst season under coach Andy Reid became the last season under Andy Reid, as the coach was fired shortly after the season ended:

28. Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 28, 4-12): After 14 years, a new era. The chances of the next coach being as successful as Reid? Very low.

Whoever becomes the Eagles new coach will have a lot of decisions to make. Most importantly -- does the team retain Michael Vick, go with Nick Foles, or look for a new quarterback?

The Eagles will also have to address a team that finished with a negative-164-point differential (minus-10.2 points per game), third-worst in the league. Philadelphia also tied for the league lead in turnovers with 37 and finished second to last in turnover differential at minus-24.

The Denver Broncos finished the season on top of the power rankings. The rest of the NFC East finished far above the Eagles, with the Washington Redskins at No. 8, New York Giants at No. 12, and Dallas Cowboys at No. 18.
