An ESPN Sports Poll has the Saints ranked as the seventh most popular team in the NFL.
The rankings of the 32 teams were conducted via telephone interview and covered the first quarter of 2012. The pollsters made 1,500 monthly calls and interviewed Americans ages 12 and older.
The Dallas Cowboys topped the list, with the Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots rounding out the top five. With the exception of the Cowboys, each of those teams have won a championship in the last decade.
