New York Giants: Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#5)

Last week: 5 (+0)

Record: 6-2

The Giants are now 53-19 in the first half of the season under Tom Coughlin, though they are also just 27-37 in the 2nd half of the season. Looking at their schedule, we could see something similar happen. This week, they host the Steelers, then they go to Cincinnati, host the Packers, go to Washington, host the Saints, go to Atlanta, go to Baltimore, and host the Eagles. They have a commanding lead on the NFC East, for now, but it’s not over. The Cowboys have been better than their record suggests and the Eagles are always the opposite of the Giants in the 2nd half of the season.
