The New Orleans Saints picked up their seventh straight win on Sunday evening when they defeated the previously undefeated Los Angeles Rams at home.

Last week the Saints ranked fourth and this week they've climbed up to the top spot in the latest ESPN NFL Power Rankings.

The Top Five is as so:

  1. New Orleans Saints (7-1) Up two to 1
  2. Kansas City Chiefs (8-1) Steady at 2
  3. Los Angeles Rams (8-1) Down two to 3
  4. New England Patriots (7-2) Steady at 4
  5. Los Angeles Chargers (6-2) Steady at 5

A couple teams who made big moves were the Chicago Bears as they climbed into the top ten from 14th to 10th, the Houston Texans went from 16th to 11th, and the Baltimore Ravens fell from 10th to 15th.

The Saints continue their tough stretch of opponents this week as they travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals who are coming off their bye week.
