12. New York Giants (4-6) Last week: 12

Though the Giants beat the Packers, I didn’t move them up.

One reason is because the Rams didn’t play and their win wasn’t very convincing. Scott Tolzien threw for 300-plus yards on their defense. Yes, they stammered the run, but maybe if it had not been for the fact they were playing a third string quarterback they might have lost.

They’ll get their chance to make right on the claim that they are going to win the East this week as they lie in wait for the Cowboys’ awful defense to come to MetLife.
