NFL Power Rankings, Week 9: Giants near, not at, the top

Ronald Martinez

Here is a summary of where the New York Giants stand in many of the prominent NFL Power Rankings that were released today. Of course, some of those prominent ones will belong to SB Nation.

SB Nation New York's Ryan Jones has the Giants sitting at No. 2. Ryan asks:

Any Giants fans get through this weekend without having a heart attack?!

In Ryan Van Bibber's latest power rankings for SB Nation, he has the Giants as the third-best team in the NFL:

3. New York Giants (LW: 3, 6-2): Eli Manning has been winning in Dallas since the Cotton Bowl in 2004. He and the Giants own a 4-0 record at Jerry Jones' temple of sprawl.

Both Pete Prisco of CBS Sports and Brian Billick of FOX gave them one spot lower than that, as Prisco noted the fact that the Giants improved to 4-0 at the new Cowboys Stadium.

4. Do they know how to win in the Cowboys' new stadium or what? They own the NFC East right now.

ESPN was the most complimentary, though, as they gave the Giants the No. 2 spot for a second consecutive week, behind only the undefeated Falcons:

2. Seventh time in nine New York seasons Tom Coughlin has gone 6-2 or better in the first half. Only twice has he won at least five in the second half. (Graziano)
