This season has started as quite the rollercoaster for Washington Commanders fans. It's been two weeks and two close games, but the Commanders are 2-0 and that's all that matters.

Meanwhile, the rest of the NFC East is chock full of some intriguing storylines and elite football play, thus far.

Although the Commanders sit at 2-0, do they belong atop our power rankings? Let's dig into where each of the four teams sit after two weeks of play.

4. New York Giants (1-1)

The New York Giants are lucky to be 1-1 after two weeks instead of sitting with a pair of losses. We'll just put it that way. A week after being blown out by the Dallas Cowboys, 40-0, the Giants looked dead in the water against a team gunnning for the no. 1 pick next year.

At halftime against the Arizona Cardinals, the Giants had then played six quarters of scoreless football this season. Things looked bleak. Fans were about to completely abandon ship after a game and a half. This team looked lost.

Then, in the second half, Daniel Jones started to get going and the Giants began playing much better football. This was against maybe the worst team in football, in the Cardinals, of course. But, the Giants wound up coming back from a 20-0 halftime deficit and winning the game 31-28.

Still, it's not enough to land them anywhere close to the rest of this division in terms of an overall power rankings system. The Giants are still a bad football team as it stands, but they have plenty of time to turn things around.
