Where are the 2-4 Giants in Week 7 NFL Power Rankings after a loss to the New England Patriots? They have dropped a couple of spots this week, now falling between 25 and 30 in most weekly rankings. Combine the seven rankings we have listed below, and the Giants sit at No. 26 in our aggregated rankings.

USA Today – No. 25

Even while severely undermanned, they gave Pats all they could handle for three quarters. One game back, don’t count G-Men out of NFC East race.

Yahoo! Sports – No. 27

Daniel Jones had the best possible turnover-filled start a rookie could have against a tough Patriots defense, given he was operating without his top running back, wide receiver and tight end. This team isn’t sniffing the playoffs, but it can play pesky spoiler in the second half of the season.

Sporting News – No. 27

CBS Sports (Prisco) – No. 25

The injuries have decimated the offense, and that showed up against the Pats. But when you look at the NFC East, they are far from dead. And now they will be getting some of those injured guys back.

ESPN – No. 24

The Big Lead – No. 29

Daniel Jones looked as expected against Bill Belichick in Foxboro. There’s a lot of optimism, but in regards to this year, wins will be hard to come by.

The Athletic (Lindsay Jones) – No. 25

If only last Thursday’s game in New England had been just three quarters long, we’d be feeling a lot better about Danny Dimes and the Giants. Of course, it wasn’t, and the Giants dismissed all talk of moral victories (a game that was close in the second half, despite being played without the Giants’ top running back, wide receiver and tight end) after losing to the Patriots by 21 points. But the good news for the Giants is that they’ll get those weapons back for Daniel Jones relatively soon, and somehow they’re just one game out of first place in the NFC East.
