NFL Power Rankings Week 3: SB Nation Ranks Giants No. 9, Jets 20th

SB Nation released its Week 3 NFL Power Rankings Tuesday, and the New York Giants were ranked No. 9 by NFL editor Joel Thorman, while the Jets were 20th. The Giants (1-1) are the fifth-best team in the NFC, as they're ranked behind the San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans, Green Bay Packers, Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers, respectively.

Here's what Thorman had to say about the Giants, who earned a thrilling 41-34 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

9. New York Giants (LW: 6, 1-1): Yes, they drop three spots after winning a game because I had them ranked a little too high to begin with. Eighth is a good spot for them. Good but not consistently great this season.

Meanwhile, here's what Thorman had to say about the Jets, who lost, 27-10, to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

20. New York Jets (LW: 15, 1-1): Two weeks ago they were doomed. Last week they were Super Bowl champs. This week they're back to being doomed.

SB Nation's rankings are similar to NFL.com's which has the Giants ranked ninth and the Jets slot No. 20. ESPN's Week 3 rankings have the Giants at No. 8 and the Jets ranked 18th. Also rankings the Giants eighth was Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, who had the Jets No. 19.

The best ranking for the Giants came from FOX Sports' Brian Billick, who ranked the defending Super Bowl champions seventh and the Jets No. 17.
