ESPN has just released its week 10 power rankings prior to this week’s slate of games. Not surprisingly, the undefeated 49ers sit atop the list, passing the now one-loss Pats. Down in the third position, the New Orleans Saints remain for the second week in a row.
Ever since the week 6 power rankings, the Niners and the Saints have been undoubtedly the most dominant teams in the NFC. There has been a debate about which squad has the best chance to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.
After all, New Orleans has had much of their success come on the back of a backup quarterback.
