New York Giants roster power rankings heading into Week 14 of the NFL season

This was not a good moment for Linval Joseph

Here are this week's New York Giants' roster power rankings. Really only minimal shuffling this week.

1. Eli Manning -- Can you think of a reason he shouldn't be here? LW: 1

2. Ahmad Bradshaw -- The guy just keeps doing things his fragile feet tell you he shouldn't be doing. LW: 3

3. Victor Cruz -- Made one big catch Monday, but dropped a ball over the middle. I hate to say it, but I'm starting to wonder if No. 80 is hearing footsteps going over the middle. LW: 3

4. Hakeem Nicks -- a soirt of 'blah' game on Monday for Nicks. LW: 4

5. Jason Pierre-Paul -- Will the All-Pro JPP from a year ago ever show up in 2012? He was a total non-factor against Washington and it's hard to keep saying it's because he gets extra attention from the opposing offense. He simply has to produce more. LW: 2

6. Antrel Rolle -- Maybe the best thing he did this week was to call out his teammates on Tuesday. LW: 6

7. Will Beatty -- A costly penalty Monday, but has to stay in this spot because of his overall contribution this season. LW: 7

8. Chase Blackburn -- It's not saying a whole lot -- or maybe it is saying a whole lot -- but he might have been the Giants' best defender on Monday. LW: 9

9. Linval Joseph -- The whole pulling a Redskins' player off a pile like he was a turkey leg was not Joseph's finest moment. He didn't play very well, either. LW: 8

10. Lawrence Tynes -- Yes, he missed a critical 43-yard field goal. I refuse, however, to blame Tynes when the snap by Zak DeOssie might have been the worst we've seen since, dare I say it, the days of Trey Junkin. LW: 10

11. Chris Snee -- Quietly having a good season. Not a great season, but a good one. LW: 12

12. Michael Boley -- A nice team-best defensive grade of +1.4 from Pro Football Focus. Can you remember any impact plays, though? I can't. LW: 13

13. Martellus Bennett -- Has 44 catches and is the best Giants' tight end since Jeremy Shockey. So much for all that gnashing of teeth about losing Jake Ballard. LW: 19

14. Prince Amukamara -- Sometimes I'm surprised Amukamara is this high, but overall he's been good. LW: 15

15. Stevie Brown -- Forced a Robert Griffin III fumble Monday. Not his fault it turned into a touchdown. LW: 17

16. Kenny Phillips -- His recurring knee issue limited him to 20 snaps, and he was hardly noticed. LW: 12

17. Osi Umenyiora -- Was abused by the Redskins in the run game, but he did at least manage to hit Robert Griffin III once. LW: 14

18. Justin Tuck -- I think the only time he showed up was when he was congratulating RGIII after the game. LW: 16

19. Kevin Boothe -- Had a nice +2.4 score from Pro Football Focus against the Redskins. LW: 21

20. David Baas -- His -1.8 PFF grade was the worst Giants' offensive score Monday. LW: 20

21. Henry Hynoski -- I keep waiting for the Giants to remember that Hynoski can do more than block. LW: 22

22. Corey Webster -- Pretty quiet night Monday for Webster. LW: 23

23. Chris Canty --Still waiting to see some real impact plays. LW: 24

24. Mathias Kiwanuka -- Played exclusively at defensive end again. This time, however, he didn't make any plays. LW: 24

25. Steve Weatherford -- Zak DeOssie gave him quite the workout Monday night. LW: 26

26. Sean Locklear -- The Giants will miss his talent, and versatility. LW: 27

27. David Diehl -- Locklear's injury makes Diehl incredibly important the rest of the way. LW: 28

28. Rocky Bernard -- Not much reason to move him up or down. LW: 29

29. Rueben Randle -- Didn't have the kind of night against Washington I thought he might have. Played 41 snaps, but only caught one pass. LW: 31

30. Bear Pascoe -- Played only nine snaps. The Giants aren't using the two tight end set much. LW: 33

31. David Wilson -- He figured to have more of an impact Monday night, but got only four carries and gained just nine yards. LW: 32

32. Domenik Hixon -- Out of sight, out of mind. LW: 30

33. Keith Rivers -- Played 34 snaps, and made a nice hustle play to recover a fumble. LW: 47

34. Jayron Hosley -- Inactive, and his role has diminished, anyway. LW: 34

35. Mark Herzlich -- Played eight snaps, but overall Hosley is just ahead in terms of contribution. LW: 35

36. Tyler Sash -- Holding steady. LW: 36

37. Will Hill -- Also holding steady. LW: 37

38. Zak DeOssie -- A terrible game snapping on Sunday. Weirdly moves up because of Torain and Lumpkin. LW: 39

39. Jerrel Jenrigan -- Has played more snaps than Barden for two straight weeks. LW: 46

40. Ramses Barden -- He's actually been surpassed by Jerrel Jernigan on the wide receiver depth chart jusing by the snaps each guy is playing -- six for Jernigan, two for Barden Monday night. LW: 41

41. Justin Tryon -- What is there to say? LW: 38

42. Spencer Paysinger -- No snaps on defense. LW: 40

43. Adrian Tracy -- He's an afterthought on defense. LW: 43

44. Travis Beckum -- Down with a knee again. LW: 42

45. Jacquian Williams -- The Giants sure could use the guy. LW: 44

46. David Carr -- Stays ahead of Cordle because you can't screw up while wearing a baseball cap. LW: 48

47. Jim Cordle -- Despite two bad penalties he actually moves up two spots. Weird? He only moves up because of the presence of Lumpkin and Torain on the roster, and he is ahead of Austin because at least he was active. LW: 49

48. Marvin Austin -- The Giants used a second-round pick for this? LW: 47

49. James Brewer -- With Sean Locklear down for the season Brewer better be ready to play. LW: 50

50. Kregg Lumpkin -- I was a little surprised to see him get a few snaps (only three) on offense. LW: Unranked

51. Adrien Robinson -- LW: 51

52. Adewale Ojomo -- LW: 52

53. Ryan Torain -- LW: Unranked
