NYG:8
Movement:Up 1
NFC East:No. 2 Cowboys, No. 8 Giants, No. 17 Redskins, No. 26 Eagles
NFL Top 5: No. 1 Patriots, No. 2 Cowboys, No. 3 Falcons, No. 4 Steelers, No. 5 Chiefs
Comments: "With a two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback in Eli Manning and a top defense, they could make a real push for the Lombardi Trophy again." – Pete Prisco

NYG:8
Movement:None
NFC East: No. 2 Cowboys, No. 8 Giants, No. 16 Redskins, No. 24 Eagles
NFL Top 5:No. 1 Patriots, No. 2 Cowboys, No. 3 Chiefs, No. 4 Falcons, No. 5 Steelers
Comments:"That was an impressive win at Washington, considering the Giants could have packed it in with a playoff game on deck this week. Their defense against Green Bay's offense is a nice wild-card weekend matchup." – Frank Schwab

NYG:8
Movement:Up 1
NFC East:No. 2 Cowboys, No. 8 Giants, No. 15 Redskins, No. 22 Eagles
NFL Top 5: No. 1 Patriots, No. 2 Cowboys, No. 3 Steelers, No. 4 Falcons, No. 5 Chiefs
Comments: "The Giants are going into the playoffs on a hot streak, which is always a positive for a team with Super Bowl aspirations. They're probably one of the quietest 11-5 teams ever, seeing as they don't get much attention due to their unexciting offense. However, the defense is among the best in football. It's good enough to carry the Giants to the Super Bowl." – Cameron Dasilva

NYG:7
Movement:Up 1
NFC East: No. 2 Cowboys, No. 7 Giants
NFL Top 5:No. 1 Patriots, No. 2 Cowboys, No. 3 Steelers, No. 4 Chiefs, No. 5 Falcons
Comments: "The offense is the main issue entering Sunday's game at Green Bay. The Giants failed to reach 20 points in any of their final five regular season games. They need QB Eli Manning to recapture his postseason magic from the team's improbable playoff runs to Super Bowl triumphs over the Patriots in the 2007 and 2011 seasons. The rebuilt defense has been very good and poses a major test for QB Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, even without injured pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul." – Mark Maske

NYG:8
Movement:Up 1
NFC East:No. 2 Cowboys, No. 8 Giants, No. 17 Redskins, No. 23 Eagles
NFL Top 5: No. 1 Patriots, No. 2 Cowboys, No. 3 Steelers, No. 4 Chiefs, No. 5 Packers
Comments: "The Giants spent big on defense in the offseason, and the result was a defense that allowed 17.8 points per game, second fewest in the NFL. The offense wasn't as solid, scoring 19.4 points per game, but the Giants finished 11-5 and are in the playoffs for the first time since 2011."
