NFL Power Rankings 2013, Week 6: 0-5 Giants fall to No. 30

After failing to beat the Eagles at home, the winless Giants drop even further in Big Blue View's power rankings

Maddie Meyer

After five games it's five losses for the New York Giants, and the team has nothing to show for itself but rumors of coaching changes and booking late-winter getaways. There are more things wrong with the Giants than there are right, and there aren't too many reasons to begin anything is going to change -- at least not this season.

After beating the Dallas Cowboys, the Denver Broncos continue their reign atop the rankings. The other undefeateds -- the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints -- continue to creep up. And only the Jacksonville Jaguars, Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Bucs join the Giants as the league's winless wonders.

Here are Big Blue View's Week 6 NFL Power Rankings:

1. Denver Broncos (5-0): Is there a defense able to slow down Denver's offense? No team will be able to keep pace with 'em. (LW: 1)

2. New Orleans Saints (5-0): The Saints are the real deal, winning a tough one on the road at Soldier Field. They have a chance to show their the best of the NFC when they travel to Foxborough. (LW: 4)

3. Seattle Seahawks (4-1): They may have lost, but Seattle has the tools to be in the Super Bowl. (LW: 2)

4. Kansas City Chiefs (5-0): It wasn't pretty, but the Chiefs scored 13 fourth-quarter points to win at Tennessee. (LW: 5)

5. Indianapolis Colts (4-1): What an impressive feat for Indy, beating both the Niners and Seahawks in recent weeks. Andrew Luck is engineering a true contender and arguably the AFC team not located in Denver. (LW: 7)

6: San Francisco 49ers (3-2): The 49ers look to be back on the track after dismantling the Texans. (LW: 6)

7. New England Patriots (4-1): Danny Amendola returned, but the Patriots' offense was putrid. Despite the record, the Pats have a lot of room for improvement. (LW: 3)

8. Green Bay Packers (2-2): The bye week was kind to Green Bay, as the defense looked sharp -- albeit against a Calvin Johnson-less offense. (LW: 8)

9. Baltimore Ravens (3-2): The Ravens looked more well-rounded Week 5, earning their first road victory of the year. (LW: 11)

10. Detroit Lions (3-2): Without Johnson, this offense doesn't have the same oomph.  (LW: 9)

11. Chicago Bears (3-2): Two losses in a row for Chicago, but fortunately they'll get the hapless Giants on Thursday night. (LW: 10)

12. Cincinnati Bengals (3-2): A statement win for Cincy, and they'll have a chance to go on a run in the coming weeks. (LW: 16)

13. Dallas Cowboys (2-3): Even though they lost, the Cowboys put forth the most impressive performance of any NFC East squad vs. Denver. (LW: 15)

14. Houston Texans (2-3): This team has talent, but where is it hiding? (LW: 14)

15. Tennessee Titans (3-2): Ryan Fitzpatrick made plays, but he can't help Tennessee to be a contender.(LW: 12)

16. San Diego Chargers (2-3): The same old Bolts: unpredictable. (LW: 13)

17. Miami Dolphins (3-2): The Dolphins started strong, but have now lost to two contenders in back-to-back weeks. (LW: 17)

18.New York Jets (3-2): Going on the road and beating the Falcons in Atlanta is no easy feat. Laugh now, but the Jets are right behind the Pats. (LW: 21)

19. St. Louis Rams (3-2): They played well, though who doesn't against the Jags? (LW: 20)

20. Cleveland Browns (3-2):This team might deserve a better ranking, but without Brian Hoyer their future is dimmer. (LW: 21)

21. Atlanta Falcons (1-4): This is not the No. 1 seed from the NFC last year. (LW: 19)

22. Buffalo Bills (2-3): Without E.J. Manuel, the road gets that much more difficult. (LW: 18)

23. Arizona Cardinals (3-2): This defense looked sharp. (LW: 25)

24. Philadelphia Eagles (2-3): The Eagles continued to soar even with Nick Foles running the show. (LW: 24)

25. Oakland Raiders (2-3): I think Oakland may have stumbled upon their future at quarterback. (LW: 28)

26. Minnesota Vikings (1-3): How long before Josh Freeman takes over this offense? (LW: 26)

27. Washington Redskins (1-3): Let's see if Mike Shanahan corrected the Skins' issues after the bye. (LW: 27)

28. Carolina Panthers (1-3): Coming off a bye week, the offense looked putrid. And their win -- against the Giants -- feels so much less impressive now. (LW: 25)

29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-4): Though they didn't get better on the bye week, they lost a distraction in Josh Freeman. (LW: 30)

30. New York Giants (0-5): It's time for the Giants to book January getaways. There won't be a postseason for this New York team. (LW: 29)

31. Pittsburgh Steelers (0-5): I'd expect a more competitive Steelers team to come off a bye week. (LW: 31)

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-5): Justin Blackmon will be a great target for whoever is playing quarterback in Jacksonville next season. (LW: 32)
