Saints Run Their Way up This Week’s NFL Power Rankings
Seven in a row and coming off the most complete and utter domination of a football game we've seen all season long. This week's NFL Power Rankings have the Saints among the games elite.
Last week the team sat just inside the top ten and poised to make a bigger leap with a signature win at buffalo. Now that they've got it, they find themselves up six spots to the number three in the entire NFL.
The Saints come in third behind only the New England Patriots at two and the Philadelphia Eagles at one.
Over the seven game winning streak the Saints have been able to really rely heavily on their dynamic ground game. Over these seven straight victories they've totaled 1,139 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns.
Most people projected the Saints to win about 8 games this season but if they win Sunday at home against the Washington Redskins, they'll have marked at least 8 wins in a season for the first time in four years.
