New England Patriots drop in Week 1 NFL Power Rankings
By Nick Ziegler
14.) Philadelphia Eagles (1-0)
After a strong rookie season, Carson Wentz picked up right where he left off in Week 1 against the Redskins. Wentz was able to total 300 passing yards and two passing touchdowns in a win for the Eagles. While the Eagles would have likely wanted to run the ball better, their passing offense and defense did really well in Week 1. If Wentz is going to play like he did against the Redskins, the rest of the NFC East should be on notice.
13.) Baltimore Ravens (1-0)
In Week 1, the Ravens made it pretty clear how they want to win football games. In their shutout win over the Bengals, the Ravens ran the 42 times for 157 rushing yards. Terrance West was the leading man for the Ravens on the ground. On Sunday, he totaled 80 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown in a solid game.
Behind a strong defense that smothered the Bengals’ offense, the Ravens looked really good in Week 1. Joe Flacco only threw the ball 17 times in the win, as the Ravens turned back the clock to make an early statement in the AFC North.
