The New Orleans Saints fell four spots this week to #20 after a loss to the (formerly alone in last place in the NFC South) Carolina Panthers.

The top four teams in this week’s rankings remain unchanged, with the Cowboys, Seahawks, Patriots and and Raiders holding spots 1-4 respectively. The bottom seven teams also remain unchanged, with the Jaguars, 49ers, and Browns maintaining their stranglehold of the bottom three spots.

Along with the Saints, the Kansas City Chiefs are another big faller this week after their loss to Tampa Bay. The Lions and Dolphins each saw big jumps in their rankings. Next week’s opponent, the Los Angeles Rams, remain at their prior spot of #27.
