New Orleans Saints (3-2) gav New England Patriots et æg på egen hjemmebane. Hvilket er med til at skyde Saints frem på ugens power rankings.
Saints nærmer sig top ti. Og forhåbentlig med en sejr mere kan Saints komme op blandt de etcifrede.

Well, that fixed the Saints’ offensive problems, right? OK, so that might be a stretch, but it was good to see them stretch things out a bit early — and for Derek Carr to hold up a week after he didn’t look quite right — against a supposedly quality Patriots defense. They went back to a more conservative approach after a while, but who can blame them? New England had basically given up by that point. When you have a defense capable of blanking (and frankly humiliating) an opponent in its home stadium, you can accept less-than-perfect play on the other side of the ball. This really was a good win, with myriad contributors on both sides.— Eric Edholm

Johnson seemed like he was on the verge of a breakout fantasy season after finishing 15th in points in ESPN leagues for his position. His rapport with Derek Carr in training camp certainly indicated he could be a big part of the offense, but so far he has only seven receptions for 61 yards and has missed the last two games with an injury. He hasn’t been a “go-to” option for this team with Michael Thomas, Rashid Shaheed, Alvin Kamara and Chris Olave taking the majority of the targets.— Katherine Terrell
