Week 5 NFL Power Rankings: Aggregate Rankings Have Giants No. 9, Jets No. 14

The Real Clear Sports Aggregate NFL Power Rankings for Week 5 have been tabulated, and the New York Giants have taken a quantum leap in front of the New York Jets.

The 3-1 Giants have moved up to ninth place in the RCS tabulations. The 2-2 Jets have stumbled to No. 14. The Giants have won three straight, while the Jets have lost their last two following a 2-0 start.

Real Clear Sports uses an aggregate score to determine their rankings, tabulating the rankings of eight prominent sports sources — including SB Nation.

This week, the Giants earned an eighth-place vote from NFL.com for their highest ranking and a 14th place vote from FOX Sports for their lowest score.
