The league’s other winless team, New Orleans, fell to 27th. The Saints were ranked ninth in the preseason, but have lost twice at home after sweeping their home games last year.

“Now we know the value of a head coach and a quality defense,” said Pat Kirwan of CBSSports.com and Sirius XM. “This is starting to look like a lost season at 0-3.”

Not to everyone. Bob Glauber of Newsday had the Saints 22nd.

“Season’s slipping away already,” Glauber said. “Not what Drew Brees had in mind as his response to Bountygate fiasco. Still enough talent to get back into it, but time might be running out.”
