Editor's note: The Power Rankings are updated every Tuesday.

There was a big shakeup at the top of the Power Rankings this week, with a new No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 team.

After weeks of e-mails from Saints fans, some funny, some angry and some a little scary, we finally moved the Saints to No. 1. Actually it had nothing to do with the e-mails, the Saints just keep beating good teams. With wins over teams like the Bucs, Packers, Steelers and now the 49ers, the Saints deserve the top spot.

With another impressive win the Chargers jumped five spots all the way to No. 2.

Meanwhile, after winning two straight games, the Rams are working their way back up the rankings, cracking the Top 20 this week.

Anyway, on to the rankings. If you want to see last week's rankings, click here.
