NFL Power Rankings 2013: Giants open No. 12 in SB Nation rankings

Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

The Giants open the season 12th in the SB Nation NFL Power Rankings.

For its Week 1 2013 NFL Power Rankings, the football gurus at SB Nation turned to the writers at all of the network's 32 team websites. When all the voting was done the New York Giants placed 12th overall in those rankings.

SB Nation writes:

Eli Manning's numbers came down a little from his career highs with the previous year's championship squad. The bigger concern is whether or not the defense can get back to threatening opposing passers the way it used to.

In all honesty, No. 12 is probably a fair spot to place the Giants as the season begins. They won a a Super Bowl two seasons ago and missed the playoffs last season. Truthfully, nobody knows exactly what we will get from this year's version of the Giants.

What about the other NFC East teams? SB Nation writers have the Washington Redskins 11th, Dallas Cowboys 16th and Philadelphia Eagles 22nd.

The top five teams are:

  1. San Francisco 49ers
  2. Seattle Seahawks
  3. Denver Broncos
  4. Green Bay Packers
  5. Atlanta Falcons
