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

ESPN -- Rank: 31

The Giants weren't great at the start, and it's even worse now. That's what happens when you drop five of six games, you have one of the league's worst defenses (ranked 27th) and your offense is devastated by injuries. Seriously, just about the only positive to take from the early part of the season is the play of Daniel Jones -- welp, until Sunday against the Rams, against whom he had four turnovers in a 38-11 loss. -- Jordan Raanan

NFL.com -- Rank: 27

The injury-depleted Giants needed to play a nearly perfect game to beat a superior Rams team on Sunday. Instead, Big Blue had two costly turnovers deep in its own territory during a nightmare second quarter that featured 28 unanswered points by the visitors. By the end of the game, an unsightly 38-11 loss, Daniel Jones had fumbled twice (losing one) and thrown three interceptions. Jones' supporting cast is compromised at the moment -- practice squad call-up Dante Pettis was targeted 11 times! -- but the QB's failure to protect the ball is worrisome after a promising start to the season in that department. The Giants are 1-5 for the second straight year with a difficult schedule ahead.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 27

With all the injuries on offense, Daniel Jones had his worst game of the season against the Rams. The Giants were terrible in that game on both sides of the ball, which drops them to 1-5.

USA Today -- Rank: 30

Among their numerous flaws, a league-worst 41.2% touchdown conversion rate in the red zone.

The Athletic -- Rank: 27

Rookie Heat Check: Hello, Kadarius Toney! It seemed like the Giants and their top 2021 pick had finally figured out how to make things work when he went off on Oct. 10 for 189 yards on 10 catches against the rival Cowboys. Toney has registered 75 yards or more in just two games, but he's hardly seen the ball in other contests. Now he is likely to miss time with an ankle injury suffered against the Rams. Rusher Azeez Ojulari has given the defense some fantastic reps, and has three sacks as a result.
