After watching the New Orleans Saints roll over the Giants and then pull off the huge comeback win against the Dolphins, I realize that it’s going to be very difficult for any other team to beat New Orleans this year. The Saints are clicking on all cylinders, they have great playmakers, great receivers, great quarterback, depth at running back, defense is getting better, the coach is a genius, and the fans are great as well, after all they’ve been through over the past few years. The Saints are my number one team this week in my NFL Power Rankings. As for the rest of the teams, here’s how I see it:

1. New Orleans Saints (6-0)

2. Indianapolis Colts (6-0)

3. New England Patriots (5-2)

4. Denver Broncos (6-0)
