Your universal headline around the league this week is likely to be somewhere along the lines of: Saints Seek to Move to 5-0, But Have Tough Challenge Ahead

Well, it’s true. Welcome back to another edition of Keys to the Game!

Let’s start with some weekly power rankings for the Black & Gold:

  • ESPN: #3 (Previous Week: #3) EVEN
  • #4 (Previous Week: #4) EVEN
  • CBS Sports:  #4 (Previous Week: #4) EVEN
  • Fox Sports: #4 (Previous Week: #6) +2

Last week, Drew Brees went into his ridiculous mode, as he torched the Dolphins for over 400 yards and 4 touchdowns, as the Saints knocked off the unbeaten Dolphins in the Monday Night Showdown 38-17.
