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

ESPN -- Rank: 29

Maybe, just maybe, the Giants have their answer with Daniel Jones. The biggest problem early in his career has been the turnovers. Well, he has one in three games this season. And Jones has competed pretty well early this year despite playing behind a rough offensive line that has contributed to him being pressured on 38.4% of his dropbacks, the fourth most in the league, per NFL Next Gen Stats. Jones might have only three touchdown passes, but he also has run for two others and had a third called back. It has been a promising start to the season for the third-year quarterback. -- Jordan Raanan

NFL.com -- Rank: 30

You cannot let the Falcons come into your building and beat you on Eli Manning Day. It just can't happen -- and Joe Judge is going to start feeling some heat if he can't start producing some better results. New York is all sorts of beat up right now -- Sterling Shepherd and Darius Slayton both exited with hamstring injuries on Sunday, while linebacker Blake Martinez tore his ACL -- but the Giants let a deeply flawed Falcons team steal a road win by failing to make the big play in the fourth quarter. (I'm looking at you, Adoree' Jackson.) An 0-3 start doesn't spell certain doom in the middling NFC East, but the Giants are a team trending in the wrong direction.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 28

At 0-3, the heat is on this group. Daniel Jones has to start winning games - or there will be changes coming.

USA Today -- Rank: 30

Don't blame their 0-3 start on LB Azeez Ojulari, the first rookie to record a sack in his first three games since Terrell Suggs in 2003.

The Athletic -- Rank: 30

Surprise! Giants fans are fed up, and with good reason. But to hear fans boo owner John Mara during Eli Manning's jersey retirement ceremony was still a shock. The Giants were long held up as one of the model franchises in the NFL, and the Maras as the type of stable ownership other teams wished they could emulate. It's bad times in the Meadowlands, and digging out of it might be the biggest challenge Mara has ever faced.
