As it it turns out, our ranking for the 3-3 Giants is only slightly higher than the aggregated average from a variety of sources. Using the 10 rankings, the Giants end up with an average ranking of 14.6, so No. 15 overall. That's a drop of four spots from last week's ranking of No. 11.
The view here is that middle of the pack is just about right for a middling that team that could be better -- but could also be worse -- six games into the season.

Yes, the Giants are still reeling from the Fourth of July. Opposing quarterbacks routinely ignore New York's pass rush, or lack thereof.

The play calling on Monday night either left something to be desired, or the Eagles just knew everything that was coming. Combined with the fact that Rueben Randle looks hobbled and Eli Manning kept getting hit ... You get the point.

Careless mistakes have too frequently been the norm for the Giants in 2015. Although once considered to be uncharacteristic of a Tom Coughlin-led team, these mistakes -- from unnecessary penalties to turnovers -- have surfaced more than they should over the last three seasons.
