NFL Power Rankings Week 16: New Orleans Hits A Speed Bump Against Ravens

NFL Power Rankings Week 16: 4. New Orleans Saints (10-4) - Last Week's Rank: 3

Why They Moved Down: The Saints resurgence this season hit a bit of a snag against Baltimore in week 15 with a 30-24 loss.

However, they are still in great position to get the first wild card spot in the playoffs (which would get them a game against the winner of the NFC West).

At 10-4, a lot would have to go wrong in order for the Saints not to be able to defend their Super Bowl title. They have an outside chance to claim the NFC South if they win out and the Falcons lose their final two games (one of which is against New Orleans next Monday night).

The defense has given up a lot of points in the last four weeks which is cause for concern but the offense has been so good that it may not matter.
