The New York Giants have moved up one spot in SB Nation's power ranking poll to No. 3 overall. Following Sunday's impressive divisional win against the Washington Redskins, the reigning Super Bowl champions improved their record to 5-2 on the year and have won their last three games.

After falling behind late to the Redskins, the duo of Eli Manning and Victor Cruz connected on a 77-yard touchdown, which effectively one-upped the 30-yard, go-ahead touchdown from Robert Griffin III and Santana Moss that occurred 19 seconds earlier.

SB Nation's Joel Thorman made sure to note the occurrence and placed the team in the company of the Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons as the NFL's top teams. ESPN.com's poll placed the Giant's as the No. 2 overall team in the league, also noting the team's propensity for completing late-game comebacks.

CBSSports.com and FoxSports.com had the team ranked at No. 4 overall, which was an improvement from one spot from last week. Pete Prisco of CBS noted that comeback but expressed concern that it may not always have the same outcome.
