Elsewhere in the division, the Dallas Cowboys (2-3), who started the year 2-0, have now dropped three straight. Dallas, still playing without Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, are coming off a rough 30-6 home loss to the undefeated New England Patriots (4-0). The Cowboys have a bye this week before playing the Giants in the Meadowlands October 25. Washington (2-3) dropped a tough one Sunday, falling to Atlanta in overtime. Washington visits the Jets (3-1) this Sunday.

With Week 5 of the NFL regular season in the books, Giants.com takes a look at power rankings coming in from outlets across the country:

NYG: 10
Movement: Up 5
NFC East: No. 10 Giants, No. 17 Washington, No. 18 Eagles, No. 22 Cowboys
NFL Top 5: Patriots, Packers, Bengals, Broncos, Falcons
Comments: Congrats to Big Blue, which more than earned that win Sunday night, as well as the right to never have to watch a daily fantasy commercial again. Eli Manning, for what it's worth, looks like a completely different player than he did in 2012 and 2013. To maestro that game-winning march, with the bargain-basement parts he had on offense, was beyond impressive. Helluva catch there, Larry Donnell.

NYG: 10
Movement: Up 3
NFC East: No. 10 Giants, No. 16 Cowboys, No. 17 Eagles, No. 20 Washington
NFL Top 5: Packers, Patriots, Bengals, Broncos, Panthers
Comments: Eli Manning is carrying this team now. He is so clutch in the fourth quarter. Now comes a tough game at Philadelphia.

NYG: 9
Movement: Up 2
NFC East: No. 9 Giants, No. 16 Eagles, No. 19 Washington, No. 21 Cowboys
NFL Top 5: Patriots, Packers, Bengals, Broncos, Falcons
Comments: QB Eli Manning called a timeout he didn't want with an ill-advised hand signal. WR Odell Beckham suffered a hamstring injury that some speculated occurred on a TD celebration (Beckham and Coach Tom Coughlin said otherwise). The Giants squandered another fourth-quarter lead. And still, they managed to come back Sunday night and beat the 49ers on Manning's late TD pass to TE Larry Donnell. The Giants are the only winning team in the NFC East and, really, should be unbeaten if they hadn't somehow found inexplicable ways to lose to the Cowboys and Falcons in the first two weeks.

NYG: 9
Movement: Up 4
NFC East: No. 9 Giants, No. 14 Cowboys, No. 21 Washington, No. 24 Eagles
NFL Top 5: Patriots, Packers, Bengals, Broncos, Falcons
Comments: They should be 5-0. 3-2 is still good enough to lead one of the worst divisions in football.

NYG: 12
Movement: Up 11
NFC East: No. 12 Giants, No. 16 Cowboys, No. 18 Eagles, No. 19 Washington
NFL Top 5: Patriots, Packers, Bengals, Broncos, Falcons
Comments: What a throw by Eli Manning, what a catch by Larry Donnell, but is anyone else worried that Odell Beckham just can't seem to shake these hamstring issues?

NYG: 13
Movement: Down 3
NFC East: No. 13 Giants, No. 18 Cowboys, No. 19 Washington, No. 20 EaglesNFL Top 5:
Patriots, Packers, Bengals, Broncos, Cardinals
Comments: Can't say they were impressive after making Colin Kaepernick look like a legit quarterback again. But ... #FirstPlace

NYG: 12
Movement: Up 3
NFC East: No. 12 Giants, No. 15 Eagles, No. 18 Cowboys, No. 21 Washington
NFL Top 5: Patriots, Packers, Falcons, Broncos, Bengals
Comments: Deja vu all over again? The Giants have now won three straight after starting 0-2 for the second consecutive season. Last year, the Giants followed that up with seven straight losses.

NYG: 10
Movement: Up 1
NFC East: No. 10 Giants, No. 16 Cowboys, No. 17 Washington, No. 18 Eagles
NFL Top 5: Patriots, Bengals, Packers, Falcons, Cardinals
Comments: After failing to lead a fourth quarter two-minute drive in Week 2, thanks in part to a dropped pass, Eli Manning led the Giants on an impressive 82-yard game-winning touchdown drive in Week 5. If the Giants can get linebackers Devon Kennard and Jon Beason healthy, they are arguably the most complete team in the NFC East.
