With one week of regular season play in the books, the good folks over at SB Nation have released their latest NFL power rankings, using actual game results to base their opinions instead of pure pre-season conjecture.
Which means the Saints have taken a bit of a dip. Last week, before the start of the season, they had the Saints ranked second right behind the Green Bay Packers. This week, the Packers still sit at the top but the Saints have a new position at sixth. Here's their explanation:
6. New Orleans Saints (LW: 2): QB Drew Brees looked terrific but it came at the hands of the Packers, who were better last Thursday night. The Saints will be fine if they play like they did last week. Unfortunately, the Packers are on another level right now.
