A three-game winning streak has the New York Giants knocking on the door of the top 10 in this week's aggregated NFL Power Rankings for Week 6. Tabulating the average of the 10 power rankings listed below, which show a high of No. 9 and a low of No. 13, the Giants come out with an aggregated ranking of 10.9. For our purposes, that makes them No. 11 overall.

Individual rankings are listed below.

CBS Sports -- No. 10

SB Nation -- No.11

NFL.com -- No. 10

Pro Football Talk-- No. 9

FOX Sports -- No. 10

The Sporting News -- No. 9

USA Today -- No. 13

Yahoo Sports -- No. 12

Pro Football Focus -- No. 13

ESPN -- No. 12

Notable quotes

Deja vu all over again? The Giants have won three straight after starting 0-2 for the second consecutive season. Last year, the Giants followed that up with seven straight losses. -- ESPN

After failing to lead a fourth-quarter, two-minute drive in Week 2, thanks in part to a dropped pass, Eli Manning led the Giants on an impressive 82-yard game-winning touchdown drive in Week 5. If the Giants can get linebackers Devon Kennard and Jon Beason healthy, they are arguably the most complete team in the NFC East. -- FOX Sports

Final thoughts

The original idea here was to use aggregated rankings from Real Clear Sports. Alas, at last check those have not been updated this month. So, we are doing this on our own.

Most sites had the Giants in the mid-20s when the season began, so this marks a pretty meteoric rise for the Big Blue.
