Not that they matter, but the final SB Nation preseason NFL Power Rankings are up, with the New York Giants ranked No. 2 overall. Unless you subscribe to the theory that the defending champs have to be No. 1 until they are beaten, I don't know if you can really have an issue with these.
SB Nation ranks the Green Bay Packers No. 1 entering the season. Here is what SB Nation's Joel Thorman says about the Giants:
The lack of hype surrounding this team is ... strange. Seriously, a team in the biggest media market in the country and it seems like an afterthought to that other team in New York. It can rest easy knowing it is clearly the superior team.
Here are the rankings of the other teams in the NFC East:
Philadelphia Eagles (12), Dallas Cowboys (15), Washington Redskins (19).
The top 5 is as follows:
- New England Patriots
- Baltimore Ravens
- Pittsburgh Steelers
