Below you will find a Week 11 roundup for the Giants in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 27

Most important remaining game: Monday at Buccaneers

If the Giants, currently 1.5 games back of the No. 7 spot, want to even pretend to be in the playoff picture, they're going to have to pull off a massive upset. Yes, it's unlikely. They are on the road against the defending champs opening as 11.5-point underdogs, per Caesars Sportsbook. Maybe getting healthier off the bye week helps? -- Jordan Raanan -- Rank: 24

The Giants spent their bye week just trying to get healthy. Injuries have been the story with this team, with critical players on the offense disappearing for large swaths of the season. Running back Saquon Barkley and wide receivers Sterling Shepard, Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton have each been sidelined for three games or more. Electric rookie wideout Kadarius Toney missed two games. The injury avalanche has muddled the evaluation process of third-year QB Daniel Jones while putting handcuffs on offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, who doesn't need any additional impediments to the job. If any team deserves some "injury luck" in the second half, it's the G-Men.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 24

They come off their bye with tough Monday night road game against the Bucs on the road. At least they are getting some guys back from injury.

USA Today -- Rank: 26

The future of several key figures in this organization could be determined in coming weeks, which include five of the next seven on the road ... starting in Tampa.

The Athletic -- Rank: 27

Steal a player: Wyatt Teller, Browns guard

The Giants running game shouldn't stink. New York is 26th in the league in expected points contributed by the run game (minus-17.27). Quarterback Daniel Jones is not the problem with this offense, but he could use some help. Saquon Barkley should be able to provide it, but the offensive line is not pulling its weight. Enter Teller, a beast in the run game.
