Saints Falter at Dallas, Fall in Weekly Rankings
The New Orleans Saints winning streak came to an end at 10 games last week at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys in Jerry World....
Last week the Saints ranked as the top team in the NFL and with the loss to the Cowboys they've slid in this week's ESPN NFL Power Rankings.
The Top Five is as so:
- Los Angeles Rams (11-1) Up one from 2
- New Orleans Saints (10-2) Down one from 1
- Kansas City Chiefs (10-2) Steady at 3
- New England Patriots (9-3) Steady at 4
- Los Angeles Chargers (9-3) Steady at 5
A couple teams who made big moves this week were the Cowboys after their win at home against the Saints as they rose three spots from 14th to 11th. The Minnesota Vikings fell a couple spots with a loss from 9th to 12th and the Green Bay Packers have essentially hit rock bottom losing to the lowly Arizona Cardinals and fell to 19th.
The Saints continue their tough schedule this week when they face the team that beat them early this season in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers looking for a little revenge. The game will be in Tampa Bay and Jameis Winston has actually been playing some good football of late. Over his last three games he's thrown for 760 yards with six touchdowns and just one interception.
