NFL power rankings for week 5 from around the Internet.

Here is a look at where the New York Giants stand in NFL power rankings from around the Internet heading into Week 5 of the NFL season.

SB Nation (No. 14)

Too low? No. 5 was probably too high last week.

ESPN (No. 10)

Same team as last year. Lots of holes and reliant on the QB to win it at the end. Kenny Phillips injury could hurt.

CBS Sports (No. 11)

Despite the loss at Philadelphia, this is still a good team. Injuries are starting to undermine the secondary. (No. 10)

Easy to play armchair coach, but even if Lawrence Tynes had made the 54-yard field goal to win the game, the thought here is that 15 seconds is a wee bit too much time to leave on the clock. It would have been nice to at least see the Giants try to hit something outside near the sideline to get Tynes closer. Either way, the poor defense on the edge against McCoy was a huge reason New York lost this game.

Thoughts, Giants fans?
