New Orleans Saints vandt IGEN i weekenden og er nu officielt inde i en sejrstime. Forhåbentlig kan det fortsætte denne uge, hvor Saints er på besøg hos Minnesota Vikings.
Men hvor langt er Saints kommet op i power rankings denne uge?
NFL #13 (#14)
The Saints continued one impressive streak and ended one bad one in Sunday’s victory. Thanks to five Bears turnovers (three in the fourth quarter), New Orleans has now forced at least one turnover in each game this season. The Saints also ended a three-game turnover skid on offense, logging a clean sheet vs. Chicago. There just seems to be something missing with this team, given that it won the turnover battle 5-0 (5-1, if you count turnovers on downs) and still had to hang on late to win. The run defense struggled for a second week in a row and now faces swashbuckling Joshua Dobbs at Minnesota before the bye. Offensively, the Saints still seem to lack a true identity, but they’ve leaned in harder on the Taysom Hill package lately. Is this enough to take the NFC South? Maybe, but they still feel middling.— Eric Edholm

Hill started the season listed as a TE, and is a quarterback sometimes — but not enough for him to be disqualified here. He has been the best thing going the past three games as the Saints have started to come together on offense. Hill has helped fix the Saints’ red zone issues with three rushing touchdowns, a receiving touchdown and a passing touchdown in the past three games.— Katherine Terrell

They lead the NFC South after beating the Bears on Sunday. But they haven’t come close to playing to their potential yet.— Pete Prisco

Taysom Hill blev første spiller i Super Bowl æraen med 10 TD grebet, løbet og kastet!.— Claus Elming
