New York Giants: 2013 NFL Week 7 Power Rankings
Preseason: 12 | Last week: 31 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002
Well ... um ... er ... they didn't move down, so that's something. I mean, it wouldn't have been crazy for anyone to say, "Hey, the Jags played the Broncos a lot tougher than the Giants did. Let's flip these two 0-6 teams at the bottom of the poll this week!" But no one did that, and speaking only for myself, the reason is that the Giants played their best game of the year so far in Chicago. So unless the Jaguars had done something really crazy like beat the Broncos, the Giants weren't dropping.
As was the case last week, three of us ranked the Giants 31st (me, Kevin Seifert and Jamison Hensley) and the other three voters (Mike Sando, Ashley Fox and John Clayton) ranked them 30th, ahead of the 0-5 Buccaneers. Splitting hairs, but based on what I've seen, this Giants team is closer to No. 32 than it is to No. 30. The potentially good news is that the No. 29 Vikings come to town for a "Monday Night Football" game this week. But remember, the Vikings view that as good news, too.
