I know many of you don't care about these, but our New York Giants are continuing to move up the charts in a variety of NFL Power Rankings. An impressive victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football, and a 5-2 record that has them sitting on top of the NFC East, means they have earned it.
- The Giants are now No. 8 in the SBNation.com Power Rankings.
- In the ESPN poll, the Giants are up to No. 9 from 11th a week ago.
- The Giants sit at No. 5 in the CBS Sports rankings.
- In the AOL Fanhouse rankings, the Giants have moved up to No. 7 from ninth a week ago.
- FOX Sports has the Giants jumping from No. 7 to No. 5.
- Cool Standings ranks the Giants No. 9 and gives them a 62.4 percent chance of making the playoffs.
I know all this stuff is meaningless in the big picture. It's just an indication of how much the opinion of this team has changed in the past four weeks.Let's just hope the Giants keep climbing after the bye.
