NFL Power Rankings: New York Giants Ranked At No. 2

The New York Giants won the most recent Super Bowl, although nobody would blame you for forgetting over the din of New York's other NFL franchise.

They are again one of the top squads in the league, Joel Thorman of SB Nation writes in his final preseason rankings Tuesday, and the only team he had ahead of the reigning champions were the Green Bay Packers.

2. New York Giants (LW: 3): The lack of hype surrounding this team is ... strange. Seriously, a team in the biggest media market in the country and it seems like an afterthought to that other team in New York. It can rest easy knowing it is clearly the superior team.

The Giants were actually only 9-7 last season, despite their postseason run culminating in the championship. They only finished a game ahead of Philadelphia and Dallas, New York's Week 1 opponent in the NFC East. The Cowboys will be hoping a strong showing against the Giants can help propel them towards January:

15. Dallas Cowboys (LW: 15): It'd take a career year from Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray to take a big step and Dez Bryant to stay on the field every week, but it's not crazy to think this team can make a playoff run.
