New York Giants: Week 8 NFL Power Rankings (#5)

Last week: 6 (+1)

Record: 5-2

Under Tom Coughlin, the Giants are 52-19 in the first 8 games of a season and 27-37 in their final 8. Their schedule this year suggests a similar thing could happen this year. After going to Dallas this week, the Giants host Pittsburgh, go to Cincinnati, go on a bye, host Green Bay, go to Washington, host New Orleans, go to Atlanta, go to Baltimore, and host Philadelphia. That being said, the Giants seem to be at their best after a rough stretch so if they struggle down the stretch and still sneak into the playoffs, like last year and in 2007, look out.


WR Victor Cruz: Caught 7 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown on 11 attempts on 44 pass snaps, 9.0 YAC per catch, 1 interception when thrown to

TE Martellus Bennett: Caught 5 passes for 79 yards on 7 attempts on 39 pass snaps, 3.4 YAC per catch


C David Baas: Allowed 1 sack, 1 quarterback hit, and 1 quarterback hurry on 45 pass block snaps, run blocked for 24 yards on 4 attempts

MLB Chase Blackburn: Allowed 4 catches for 65 yards on 4 attempts, 7 solo tackles, 1 assist, 3 stops
