Below you will find a Week 15 roundup for the Giants in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.
The Athletic -- Rank: 23
Offensive tackle Andrew Thomas, the fourth overall pick, had been showing signs of improvement, but he's coming off a rough game against the Cardinals. Thomas has started 12 games and is only 21 years old. He has the traits to be a really good tackle but hasn't put it all together as a rookie. The Giants need to pick up a game on Washington and hold off the Eagles to win the NFC East.
CBS Sports -- Rank: 23
The return of Daniel Jones from injury didn't quite work out. The offensive line didn't help him much, but he has to be better.
USA Today -- Rank: 22
QB Daniel Jones returned just in time to pilot offense to season-low 159 yards. Hard to see this team rebounding against Browns or Ravens.
ESPN -- Rank: 20
The Giants' worst unit is their offense? Wasn't that supposed to be their best unit? For a variety of reasons (beginning with the Saquon Barkley injury), it's not, and it's at the top of the list of reasons they have a losing record. Daniel Jones hasn't made the leap as expected in Year 2, and the Giants are struggling to score points. Thankfully, the defense has kept them in and won them some games. It has probably been even better than FPI ranks it. -- Jordan Raanan
NFL.com -- Rank: 19
Daniel Jones played hurt on Sunday, and it looked like it. The Giants quarterback threw for just 127 yards and didn't have a single rushing attempt in a 26-7 loss to the Cardinals that dropped New York out of first place in the NFC East. An ailing Jones limped to the sideline at the end of the game, and it's fair to wonder if a compromised version of the second-year quarterback will be Joe Judge's best option on Sunday night against the Browns. Whoever is playing quarterback for Big Blue, the offensive line needs to be far better than it was against Arizona. Jones and Colt McCoy were sacked eight times in the loss, five of them coming on a career day from Haason Reddick. If the Giants don't find a way to take a step forward on offense, their season has already peaked.
