Eagles, Dolphins up after Bills’ loss


NFL power rankings entering Week 4 of 2022 season (previous rank in parentheses):

1. Eagles (3): During the offseason, they upgraded a playoff-caliber roster while concurrently creating an environment to test Jalen Hurts and determine whether or not he’s a franchise quarterback. So far, it appears he’s precisely that – and Philadelphia has played like the class of the NFC, improving to 3-0 on the heels of two dominant performances and seemingly setting up to make a run at a No. 1 postseason seed.

2. Dolphins (5): During the offseason, they upgraded a playoff-caliber roster while concurrently creating an environment to test Tua Tagovailoa and determine whether or not he’s a franchise quarterback (and he better be after Miami owner Stephen Ross’ tampering led to bonus of one of next year’s first-round picks). So far, it appears Tua is precisely that – though it still seems Miami has more glaring flaws (run game, pass defense) than Buffalo in light of a somewhat fluky upset of the Bills in Sunday’s South Florida steam bath.

3.Bills (1): A team that’s become accustomed to blowing out the competition in recent years showed Sunday it needs to polish its hurry-up offense or risk another conniption from OC Ken Dorsey. Micah Hyde’s season-ending neck injury looms as a more concerning long-term issue, breaking up the league’s best safety tandem for the remainder of 2022.
