2014 NFL Power Rankings - Week 13

- Updated: Thursday, November 27th


With a perfect 8-0 home record in 2013 and a 3-0 start at home this year, the New Orleans Saints have enjoyed one of the league's best home-field advantages.

Considering they started the season 4-4, three consecutive home games appeared to be a perfect recipe for them to build some momentum going into the second half of the season.

Instead, they lost all three of those games to the 49ers, Bengals and Ravens and are now 4-7 with five games to go.

That said, the Saints are tied for first place in the NFC South with the Falcons. The Panthers are only a half-game out of first despite their 3-7-1 record and the Bucs, 2-9, are only two games out of first place.

It's the first time this late in the season that all four teams in a division are at least three games below .500.

On the flip side, the Ravens improved to 7-4 with their win over the Saints on Monday night and now all four AFC North teams are three games above .500. There has never been a point in the season that all teams in a division were three games above .500.
