2020 NFL Power Rankings: New York Giants

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the New York Giants rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a Week 9 roundup for the Giants in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 29

For much of the season, it's felt like their offensive coaching staff has done very little to help Daniel Jones. But on Monday night, Jones just missed too many throws and opportunities for big plays. The Giants play hard and have made strides defensively, but Jones has shown no improvement from his rookie season.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 30

They are making progress, which is a good sign. They just have to stop the Daniel Jones turnovers.

USA Today -- Rank: 28

The average margin of victory in their last four contests has been 1.75 points ... unfortunately for New York, it's only prevailed once in that stretch.

ESPN -- Rank: 31

Reason for optimism: C Nick Gates

There is not a lot to work with here, but Gates has become progressively better as the season has gone on. Remember, he never played center in a game prior to this season. Now, it looks as though the Giants might have found their starter at the position, not only for this season but for years to come. For an organization that has struggled so badly to put together a competent offensive line, you take what you can get. -- Jordan Raanan

NFL.com -- Rank: 29

We'll start with a positive: Daniel Jones deserves credit for the Giants' final scoring drive against the Bucs, a 70-yard march that put the team in position to tie the game and included a pair of fourth-down conversions and a beautiful end zone strike to Golden Tate. But ultimately, Jones was the reason New York missed out on an upset win on Monday night. The second-year quarterback was haunted by errant passes, poor field vision and bad decision-making. His two second-half interceptions galvanized a Bucs team that looked ready to sleepwalk its way to a loss. Jones had opportunity after opportunity to bury an elite opponent, but he just didn't have it in him. He'll be playing for his Giants future in the final eight weeks of the regular season.
