How do national Week 8 NFL Power Rankings differ from the Big Blue View Power Rankings, which have your New York Giants at No. 9 after their first victory in six tries against the Dallas Cowboys? Aggregating the 10 rankings listed below, the Giants end up at No. 12, three spots below where Chris has them.

Pat Kirwan of CBS, who has the Giants at No. 9, is the only analyst in our list to have the Giants in the top 10. ESPN's ranking of 14th is the lowest in our survey.

The Giants, of course, could care less about where they are in the mythical power rankings. Or about the fact that some people are not yet sure what to make of them. The Giants are 4-3, have won four of their last five games and are in first place in the NFC East.

"I can't speak for everybody, but for me, I'm fine with it," said linebacker Devon Kennard. "We just want to take one week at a time and see where we are at the end of 16. We're 4-3 right now and we've still got a long ways to go."

Here is a look at this week's power rankings from around the Inter-Google as the Giants prep for a road game against the New Orleans Saints.

SB Nation (No. 11, LW: 14)

New York is probably the most surprising division leader through seven weeks, and with the way that team can put points on the board, it has a shot to win every week.

NFL.com (No. 12, LW: 14)

Pro Football Talk (No. 13, LW: 14)

Consistent Inconsistency is the T-shirt slogan for the 2015 Giants.

FOX Sports (No. 13, LW: 17)

The Giants have found a way to scrap out four wins this season, thanks in large part to their league-best plus-nine turnover differential. If the Giants want to take the next step, they are going to need big second half contributions from Will Beatty, Victor Cruz and someone who can rush the passer -- Jason Pierre-Paul met with the team on Monday.

ESPN (No. 14, LW: 14)

The Giants have a plus-10 turnover differential this season. The Giants won at least nine games each of the past four times they finished a season with a positive turnover differential. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Official  NFL stats show the Giants to be +9, not +10.]

Sagarin Rankings (No. 13)

USA Today (No. 13, LW: 14)

Yahoo Sports (No. 12, LW: 13)

CBS Sports/Kirwan (No. 9, LW: 14)

CBS Sports/Prisco (No. 11, LW: 17)
