NFL Power Rankings 2013, Week 7: Giants are best of the worst

The 0-6 Giants can't buy a win at this point, and the future doesn't look very bright.

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants fell to 0-6 Thursday night at Solider Field. Despite the team putting forth a more competitive effort, their weaknesses were glaring and there's little reason to believe the rest of the season will be much better for the men in blue. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Jacksonville Jaguars are the only other teams yet to record a win this season.

The Denver Broncos took care of business against the Jacksonville Jaguars. They remain undefeated and sit atop Big Blue View's power rankings for a seventh consecutive week. The Kansas City Chiefs are the only other undefeated team in the NFL, but the top four remains unchanged for a second week.

Here are Big Blue View's Week 7 NFL Power Rankings:

1. Denver Broncos (6-0): Far and away the best team in the league, Denver faces its biggest test to date this Sunday against Andrew Luck's Colts. (LW: 1)

2. New Orleans Saints (5-1): (LW: 2)

3. Seattle Seahawks (5-1) (LW: 3)

4. Kansas City Chiefs (6-0): (LW: 4)

5. New England Patriots (5-1): Tom Brady played like Tom Brady in the final minutes of the game against New Orleans, and that's been missing a lot of this season. (LW: 7)

6. San Francisco 49ers (4-2): Even after a win the Niners dropped a spot, but it's more due to the Patriots' marquee win. San Fran beginning to gain steam. (LW: 6)

7. Indianapolis Colts (4-2): Perhaps the Colts were looking ahead to the matchup with Peyton Manning too soon. (LW: 5)

8. Green Bay Packers (3-2): This Packers team looked how we expected them to, but let's see how much of a toll the injuries take going forward. (LW: 8)

9. Detroit Lions (4-2): The Lions' second half was impressive, scoring 24 and shutting down Cleveland at home. Let's see if they're as good against Cincy next week. (LW: 10)

10. Chicago Bears (4-2): Chicago looked to regain its confidence in their win over the Giants.(LW: 11)

[Related: SB Nation also has the Giants at No. 30]

11. Cincinnati Bengals (4-2): It wasn't pretty, but they got the job done in Upstate New York. (LW: 12)

12. Dallas Cowboys (3-3): Dallas is definitely the best team in the NFC East this season. (LW: 13)

13. Baltimore Ravens (3-3): What is nagging the defending champions? (LW: 9)

14. San Diego Chargers (3-3): San Diego has the ability to make some noise. Unfortunately, they play in the same division as two unbeaten squads. (LW: 13)

15. Tennessee Titans (3-3): Without Jake Locker, Tennessee is falling into a funk. (LW: 15)

16. Miami Dolphins (3-2): Miami faces Buffalo, New England and Cincy in the next three weeks. That should be a good gauge of where this team stands. (LW: 17)

17. St. Louis Rams (3-3): The Rams are exactly what their record says: a .500 team. (LW: 19)

18. Philadelphia Eagles (3-3): The Eagles are tied with the Cowboys atop the NFC East. Is Nick Foles the solution? (LW: 24)

19. New York Jets (3-3): What a Jets sort of move to fall to the then-winless Steelers at home. (LW: 18)

20. Houston Texans (2-4): Has there been a more disappointing team this season? (LW: 14)

21. Cleveland Browns (3-3): They're getting better, for sure, but this team has a ceiling with Brandon Weeden under center. (LW: 20)

22. Atlanta Falcons (1-4): No Julio Jones. No defensive consistency. Health concerns for Roddy White and Steven Jackson. (LW: 21)

23. Buffalo Bills (2-4): They're record may not indicate their improvements, but the Bills play some pretty solid ball. (LW: 22)

24. Arizona Cardinals (3-3): The Carson Palmer experiment is not going according to plan at all. (LW: 23)

25. Carolina Panthers (2-3): Cam Newton must of heard the haters (including myself), but it'll take more than a win against the Vikings before I'm a believer in Carolina. (LW: 28)

26. Oakland Raiders (2-4): They have some work to do during the bye week. (LW:25)

27. Washington Redskins (1-4): Special teams blunders and defense cost Washington a win, and they appear to be out of the divisional race early. (LW:27)

28. Minnesota Vikings (1-4): After being demolished at home, is it Josh Freeman time in the Twin Cities? (LW: 26)

29. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-5): The Steelers off the snide with a win over the Jets because of an old philosophy: tough defense. (LW: 31)

30. New York Giants (0-6): Here's a compliment: the G-Men are the best of the worst. With both lines suspect, it's hard to imagine the Giants being anything other than a late-season spoiler this year. (LW: 30)

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-5): Greg Schiano should be on the hot seat in Tampa. What a disappointment. (LW: 29)

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-6): Nobody seems to be able to knock the Jags from their spot at the bottom. I'm not sure a win could come until November ... maybe? (LW: 32)
