LVSC Rankings - Saints sit atop

Las Vegas Sports Consultants has released their latest power rankings, as a new team has taken hold of the top spot. There was plenty of shake-up inside the top five following the wild events of Week 6.

The Saints marched all over the Giants this past Sunday to claim the top position in this week's rankings. Drew Brees led New Orleans on five first-half touchdown drives en route to a 48-27 drilling of New York. The Saints are now 5-0, heading to Miami on Sunday to battle the Dolphins, who lead the league in rushing offense.

The Colts stayed put in the second spot after having the bye this past week. Indianapolis (5-0) mine as well be off again this week, traveling to St. Louis to take on the winless Rams. Indianapolis could be staring at worse at a 13-3 season with the way their schedule lines up the rest of the way.

The Patriots improved one position from 4th to 3rd after their destruction of the Titans, 59-0. Tom Brady looked like his former self with five touchdown passes in the second quarter, while leading New England to its fourth win. The Pats make the long trip to London this week to play the 0-6 Buccaneers.

The Giants and Steelers share the 4th spot this week, as New York slipped three places. The Giants fell back to Earth after their blowout loss in the Big Easy against the Saints. Pittsburgh, meanwhile, stayed put after beating Cleveland, but the Steelers did not cover as two-touchdown favorites. New York returns home this week for a Sunday Night contest with Arizona, while Pittsburgh hosts undefeated Minnesota.

The surprising Broncos stayed unbeaten with the Monday Night victory at San Diego, and keep moving up the rankings. Denver has ascended to the 10th spot, as Josh McDaniels' club is up to 6-0 heading into the bye. Things don't get easier the next two games, as Denver battles Baltimore and Pittsburgh.

Arizona made the biggest leap in the rankings this week, improving from 18th to 13th. The Cards, who started 1-2, have all the sudden won two straight, coming off a blowout victory at Seattle. Following Arizona's trip to New York, the Cards take on four of five opponents who currently sit below .500.

The Chargers and Titans each dropped four spots in the rankings this week. San Diego (10th to 14th) had more problems cashing in the red zone Monday against Denver, while allowing a pair of special teams touchdowns. Tennessee (21st to 25th), meanwhile, continues to be one of the biggest enigmas in the league. The Titans were whitewashed in New England, while still searching for their first victory. Thankfully, Tennessee is off this week, as the Titans host the Jaguars following the bye.
