IT’S ONLY JULY 31, AND THESE EAGLES ARE RATED NO. 1 IN NFL!

So says USA Today:

Now that every NFL team is officially in the throes of training camp, it’s as good a time as any to re-assess the league with a fresh batch of power rankings — our first since the completion of April’s draft.

1. EAGLES (1): On paper (games evidently aren’t played there), lineup looks stronger than Super Bowl version, assuming Carson Wentz and Jason Peters are full go by Week 1 and Michael Bennett and Haloti Ngata fully assimilate.

2. Patriots (2): No team more deserves benefit of doubt. Still, concerning Pats have so many new starters on offense and so few apparent upgrades on defense.

3. Falcons (3): Your fresh reminder that no team came closer to KO’ing Eagles in playoffs. Atlanta looks sufficiently loaded to reach Super Bowl on home field.

4. Vikings (4): Don’t be surprised if Dalvin Cook’s return actually has more profound effect on 11th-ranked offense than Kirk Cousins’ arrival:
