New Orleans Saints: 2013 Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#3)

Last week: 3

Record: 4-0

Right now, I think the Saints are the 3rd best team in the NFL and could compete with Seattle or Denver on a neutral field. They are 3rd in the NFL in terms of moving the chains, doing so on 81% of chances. A strong offense is nothing new in New Orleans. Even with Sean Payton gone last year, the Saints were 4th in the NFL in points scored behind only the Patriots and Broncos. However, they are also playing very well on defense, allowing opponents to move the chains on just 66% of chances, 3rd best in the NFL. This is a huge change from last year, when they allowed the 2nd most points per game in the league and surrendered the most yards in NFL history. They are +15% in differential in terms moving the chains, as opposed to how often their opponents are. That’s the best in the NFL through 4 games.
