. . New York Giants. 9. team. 31.

The Giants fall a spot in our NFL power rankings, but there aren’t too many concerns what New York has on the table entering 2017.

New York added veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall this offseason, and he should be a nice complement to No. 1 wideout, Odell Beckham Jr. But Marshall is 33 years old, and one has to wonder how much left he has in the tank.

Age concerns also surround quarterback Eli Manning, as he’s now 36 years old. The Giants offensive line isn’t exactly in tip-top shape. Who knows if this plays a role this season.

Fortunately, the Giants still boast one of the better defenses in the league. Free-agent pickups over the past couple of years have turned this group into a solid one.

And if there are any offensive issues in New York, the defense should be able to pick up the slack.
