The New Orleans Saints picked up another big road win on Sunday night when they traveled to the scene of the crime where their season ended last year against the Vikings. They came out of Minnesota with a 30-20 victory.

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

The Top Five is as so:

  1. Los Angeles Rams (8-0) Steady at 1
  2. Kansas City Chiefs (7-1) Steady at 2
  3. New Orleans Saints (6-1) Up one to 3
  4. New England Patriots (6-2) Down one from 3
  5. Los Angeles Chargers (5-2) Steady at 5

Not too much movement within the top five except for the New England Patriots falling down one spot.

A couple teams who made big moves were the Carolina Panthers up three spots from nine to six after a solid win against the Baltimore Ravens. As far as a team who fell it would have to be the Jacksonville Jaguars who fell from 15 to 18 after they lost across the pond to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Saints continue their tough stretch of opponents this week as they head back home to face the undefeated Los Angeles Rams.
