21. New York Giants (5-7, Previous: 24)
After starting the season 0-6, the Giants have improbably bounced back to just two games behind NFC East leaders Philadelphia and Dallas. They looked lousy in the first quarter against the Redskins, but rebounded on the strength of Andre Brown’s running and Justin Tuck’s four sacks of RG3. The weaknesses are still glaring — Eli Manning remains on pace to throw more interceptions than touchdowns, and has already been sacked a career-high 31 times — but the Giants are finding ways to win, and that’s what counts.
