Two straight losses for the Detroit Lions caused them to fall out of the top 10 in most NFL power rankings. After winning on Thanksgiving, however, the Lions once again have their sights set on the top 10, and two sets of power rankings went ahead and put them in the top 10 this week. Take a look:
- SB Nation: 8th (up from 10th)
- ESPN: 12th (up from 13th)
- CBS Sports: 12th (up from 13th)
- FOX Sports: 10th (up from 14th)
- Pro Football Talk: 13th (up from 14th)
The Philadelphia Eagles, which will play host to the Lions on Sunday, are ranked 12th (SB Nation), 10th (ESPN), 10th (CBS Sports), ninth (FOX Sports) and 10th (Pro Football Talk). The Eagles are on a four-game winning streak, so this is going to be a pretty interesting matchup. Philly is trying to take control of the NFC East, whereas the Lions are trying to move a step closer toward clinching the NFC North.
