Week 12 NFL Power Rankings

Tom Brady

22. New Orleans Saints (LW: 19)

By the time the season ends, the New Orleans Saints may look back on everything that has transpired in 2014 and consider it one giant missed opportunity. Even with two overtime losses and a losing record entering Week 11, the Saints still led the pathetic NFC South. Their second consecutive home loss – which had not happened in back-to-back games since late 2009 – sent the Saints back into the muddled mess of the rest of the division. Now at a disappointing 4-6, New Orleans has proven to be every bit as bad as its record. Failing to capitalize on the down year of the NFC South would be the icing on the otherwise disgusting cake the Saints brought to the party this season.
