In this week’s aggregated NFL Power Rankings from Real Clear Sports, both the New York Giants and New York Jets fell from a week ago. That is what Week 5 losses, and in the Jets’ case a three-game losing streak, will do.
The Giants (3-2) are No. 13 in the RCS aggregated rankings. The 2-3 Jets are No. 17.
RCS, if you are not familiars, aggregates the weekly rankings of eight popular sports sites (SB Nation, ESPN, FOX, Sporting News, CBS, Sagarin, NFL.com, Pro Football Talk) to come up with their rankings.
The Giants were 11th in the CBS poll, but as low as No. 19 in the weekly Sagarin Rankings. The Giants face the 4-1 Buffalo Bills (sixth in the RCS rankings) this week.
The Jets were an unbelievable No. 8 in the Sagarin Rankings, while CBS, NFL.com and Pro Football Talk all had the Jets down at No. 20. The Jets hope to get back on the right track Monday night against the 0-4 Miami Dolphins.
