New Orleans Saints: 2013 Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#3)

Last week: 3 (+0)

Record: 7-2

After the Saints’ absolute trouncing of the Cowboys, in which they won by 32, despite muffing a punt, missing a field goal, and not recovering an opponent’s onside kick, they now lead the NFL in rate of moving the chains differential. They are moving the chains at an 82% rate, as opposed to 70% for opponents. This makes sense, as the Saints not only set the single game record for first downs, but also for first down differential (+31). They now have won their last 14 home games under Sean Payton by an average of 22 points per game. I don’t think anyone is beating them there. The Saints’ game in Seattle in a few weeks might as well be the NFC Championship given how good those two teams are at home and how the winner will almost definitely get homefield advantage through the NFC.
