Where are the 2-3 New York Giants in Week 6 NFL Power Rankings? Pretty much where the were a week ago, between 20 and 25 in most weekly rankings. Combine the seven rankings we have listed below, and the Giants sit at No. 24 in our aggregated rankings.

USA Today — No. 24

Given mothballed QB Eli Manning’s penchant for slaying Patriots, don’t you have to put him back in the lineup just for this week?

Yahoo! Sports — No. 24

Lost in the Daniel Jones excitement was the issue with the Giants’ pass defense. The Vikings went from a near revolt over the lack of a passing game to Kirk Cousins shredding the Giants for 278 yards in the first half of an easy win. Everyone is going to be able to move the ball up and down the field on them.

Sporting News — No. 24

Daniel Jones has showed he still has a lot to learn, and having some offensive skill injuries pile up around him hasn’t helped. The Giants’ defense is the primary culprit for their bad start, and that unfortunately will keep Jones in more unfavorable matchup situations.

CBS Sports (Prisco) — No. 22

Daniel Jones lost for the first time against the Vikings, which was the best defense he faced. Now here come the Patriots and their stingy D. Good luck.

ESPN — No. 24

The Big Lead — No. 25

Danny Dimes has predictably fallen back to Earth, but Saquon Barkley should be back soon, and the tandem that will lead Big Blue into a new era will finally take the field together.

The Athletic (Jones) — No. 25

Sunday’s loss to Minnesota reminded us that the Giants are more than a quarterback switch away from being competitive with the upper tier of teams in the NFC. And for a Giants team with defensive holes and shaky offensive line play, it might get worse before it gets better. Next up? Thursday night at New England. Gulp.
