After losing last Thursday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys and ending a 10 game winning streak, the New Orleans Saints have dropped as low as 4th in the NFL power rankings.  

Most rankings do have the Saints dropping just one spot from number 1 to number 2,  the Washington Post dropped the Black & Gold to number 4.  

Here's what the Washington Post said:

No one should overreact to the loss Thursday night in Dallas. It was only one game, after all. But no one should ignore it, either. If the Saints don’t have home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, it matters. It’s not that they can’t go to L.A. and win the NFC title game; they can. It’s more about the lost advantage of not having the game in New Orleans. The offensive performance against the Cowboys also highlighted the lack of another major threat in the passing game if an opposing defense somehow manages to thwart Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara.

USA TODAY, ESPN and Yahoo! Sports all have the Saints dropping from 1 to 2.
