It’s that time of week again to look at some of the best NFL Power Rankings for Week 15 in order to figure out where some of the industry experts are rankings the New Orleans Saints.

Week 15 was kind to the Saints in most rankings, as they have landed in the top five in two important sets of rankings. First up is ESPN’s rankings, which has kind words for Drew Brees and the Saints:

Same old Saints. New Orleans is now 7-0 at home with a plus-122 point differential and plus-5 turnover margin. On the road? They’re 3-3, minus-22 point differential and minus-2 turnover margin.

The Saints jumped up two spots there at No. 3, but remained at No. 4 in CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco’s latest edition:

They bounced back in impressive fashion to beat the Panthers. The division title will be in their hands if they beat Carolina in two weeks.

Not a bad set of ranks for the Saints. One has to think New Orleans will be able to flirt with the No. 1 spot should they again beat the Carolina Panthers in two weeks.

Either way, rankings are just for fun. Saints fans know the deal — the NFC South crown is in play, as is a serious playoff run — regardless of ranks.

How do you feel the Saints should be ranked? Did the experts get it right? Let us know through the avenues below.
