The Giants continue to fight to stay alive in the NFC East after starting the season 0-6. The team still has a chance to win the division as it sits two games behind the 7-5 Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys, but with only four games to play the odds of it winning the division seems unlikely. The Chargers have been an inconsistent team all year long, losing to teams like Oakland and Houston while beating winning teams like Dallas, Philadelphia and Kansas City. The team sits one game behind the 6-6 Baltimore Ravens in a crowded AFC wildcard race.

Sunday, the Giants stopped the Redskins on the team's final drive amid a bit of referee controversy to defeat Washington and move to 5-7. After scoring 41 against the Chiefs, the Chargers struggled on offense vs. the Bengals, falling 17-10.

The Big Blue View Power Rankings have the Giants and Chargers ranked fairly close to each other, with the teams being ranked at No. 20 and No. 17 respectively. SB Nation's version of the rankings has both teams ranked slightly higher and closer together, with the Giants ranked at No. 17 and the Chargers at No. 16.
