2021 NFL Power Rankings: New York Giants

Throughout the 2021 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 13 roundup for the Giants in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 26

Hey, the Giants have won three of five games, with victories over the Panthers, Raiders and Eagles. That's not bad, even if it hasn't been pretty. The Giants' only two losses since Week 6 have come on Monday nights in Tampa Bay and Kansas City. How? They have the second-highest defensive EPA, at 36.96, during that time. -- Jordan Raanan

NFL.com -- Rank: 23

The dismissal of Jason Garrett did little to help the Giants' offense, which remained abysmal Sunday against the Eagles. Luckily, the defense had a better time of it against Philly, forcing four turnovers and (with some Jalen Reagor-related luck) getting the final stop in a 13-7 win at the Meadowlands. Hard as it may be to believe, the Giants remain on the periphery of the NFC wild-card race, though it would take a miraculous turnaround from the offense to end the team's five-year playoff drought. One player who benefitted from Freddie Kitchens' ascension to play-caller was Kenny Golladay, who garnered two end-zone targets (both unsuccessful) and converted a pair of 18-yard completions on New York's final field-goal drive. It's a start.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 27

Firing Jason Garrett jump-started the defense, which played well against the Eagles. The offense still isn't doing much.

USA Today -- Rank: 26

After all the criticism of deposed OC Jason Garrett not maximizing his weapons, New York's only TD Sunday was scored by ... Chris Myarick? Whatever -- it worked.

The Athletic -- Rank: 28

Problem area: Offensive line. The Giants have a lot of problem areas under coach Joe Judge, and firing offensive coordinator Jason Garrett won't be a magic fix. Quarterback Daniel Jones may not be good enough (and might be out Sunday against the Dolphins with a strained neck), but having one of the worst offensive lines in football certainly doesn't help.
