NFL Power Points: Eagles soaring high
The Eagles blowout of the suddenly struggling Cowboys vaulted them to first overall in the Power Points.
The next four teams are all within one point of the Eagles as the Titans and Chiefs continued their slide while the surging Ravens and Rams edged slightly higher to ratings above seven points overall. The Patriots may have won nine straight games, but the only games they have dominated have been defensively. They have two shutouts over the span, but in each managed to only score 12 points. Their average margin of victory over their streak is just seven points. The Patriots defense ranks second overall behind the Ravens, but their offense struggles through mediocrity, ranking a below average 17th.
