Let’s see what NFL analysts think of the 2-13 Giants

NFL: New York Giants at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants fell to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, 23-0, to drop the Giants to 2-13 on the season. With the NFL Power Rankings coming out on various platforms this morning, let’s see where the Giants fall.

We went through several different site’s power rankings and the Giants came out at No. 31 when you aggregate the various lists. Here is an aggregation of all of the rankings and the explanations.

SB Nation (No. 31)

Yahoo (No. 31)

The season can't end soon enough for the Giants.

Bleacher Report/Simms (No. 31)

Last Week's Ranking: 30

This season has been a joke for the New York Giants. What else can we say?

Offensively, it's been a disgrace. I truly have to wonder what the market for Eli Manning might be in the offseason. I don't know how anyone can watch the same film of him I have and think that he's the guy to lead their franchise. It'll be interesting to see if the Giants keep him, try to move him or if Manning simply decides to retire.

Defensively, New York has to be embarrassed with some of its defensive performances this year. This is one of the more expensive defenses in football, and it disappointed more often than not.

The offense has been embarrassing at times. The defense has been embarrassing at times. Of course, the situation in the front office was embarrassing most of the time. Expect a fresh start in 2018.

USA Today (No. 31)

The latest scar from this forgettable/unforgettable season – Sunday's shutout loss at Arizona marked first time franchise has lost 13 games.

ESPN (No. 30)

2017 record: 2-13

Week 16 ranking: No. 30

9 wins: How bad has this season been for New York? A Week 17 victory over Washington would mean the Giants' fewest wins (3) since 1983, when they went 3-12-1. A loss would mean their fewest wins since 1974, when they went 2-12.

Washington Post (No. 31)

Will Sunday’s matchup against the Redskins at the Meadowlands be Eli Manning’s final game with the Giants? The possibility of that adds considerable intrigue to an otherwise unwatchable game.
