New York Giants: 2013 Week 8 NFL Power Rankings (#27)

Last week: 28 (+1)

Record: 1-6

The Giants won this week, but they were significantly less impressive this week than they were in a loss to the Bears, a game which they would have won if they were even competitive in the turnover battle. Against the Vikings, they didn’t move the ball well and relied on the turnover battle heavily. Eli Manning missed throws and throws that weren’t missed were dropped by receivers like Hakeem Nicks, who isn’t making himself a ton of money in a contract year. Meanwhile, Peyton Hillis looked like he was signed off the couch this week (which he was), rushing for 36 yards on 18 carries. We’ll see how they play going forward, but they might just be a fringe team all season.
