Saints moving up in NFL power rankings

Saints beat the Bills for seventh straight win

Here is where the Saints rate by some of the national sports web sites that provide power rankings.

ESPN: Saints 3rd, up from 9th - Over their seven-game win streak, the Saints have rushed for 1,139 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Yahoo!: Saints 3rd, up from 4th -  One reason the Saints’ defense is playing well: New Orleans’ offense is sustaining drives. The Saints are fourth in the league in time of possession.

Washington Post: Saints 3rd, up from 5th - It’s time to put aside the old notions about their suspect defense and lack of commitment to the running game. They can play defense.

USA Today: Saints 5th, up from 8th -  Today's second history lesson - only other teams since 1966 to win six straight after an 0-2 start ('93 Cowboys, '07 Giants) both won Super Bowl.

Saints Super Bowl odds fall - The Saints, meanwhile, are now considered a legitimate contender after blowing out the Bills 47-10, handing Buffalo its first home loss of the season.

SB Nation: Saints 3rd - same as last week - No comments
