As expected, the New Orleans Saints have taken a noticeable drop in most NFL Week 15 power rankings after an embarrassing trip to St. Louis results in a loss, much to the delight of those who believe the Saints cannot win on the road.

Alas, two weeks remain before the playoffs start. Here is how the Saints rank in the mind of some experts after the Week 15 loss.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk explains that the Saints may fall rapidly in the NFC playoff race:

5. Saints (10-4; No. 4):  From likely No. 2 seed to possible No. 6 seed, all in one miserable Missouri afternoon.

Pat Kirwan of CBS Sports brings up the road woes:

6. New Orleans Saints: They have to solve their road issues soon or it will be a short postseason. It starts this week in Carolina. If the Saints played 16 at home they would be No. 1.

Brian Billick of Fox Sports drops the Saints three spots and explains how the seeds could play out:

5. The Saints still control their own destiny in the NFC South but a loss on Sunday will drop them from the No. 2 seed to the No. 5 seed.

Who do you agree with? Where should the Saints be ranked after such a  horrible loss? Sound off in the comments or social media outlets below.
