NEW ORLEANS (WAFB) -

The New Orleans Saints are still without a win this season after losing 45-32 to the Atlanta Falcons Monday night. The team's third straight loss has dropped the Saints three spots to No. 27 in ESPN's Week 3 Power Rankings.

The ranking puts the Saints ahead of Tampa Bay, Jacksonville, San Francisco, Chicago and Cleveland.

The Saints are 0-2 when scoring 30 or more points this season. The rest of the NFL is 20-3 when scoring 30 or more points. QB Drew Brees will need some defensive help to beat his former team in his return to San Diego for a Week 4 game.

The Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos are No. 1, followed by New England, Seattle, Minnesota and Arizona.

The NFC South Carolina Panthers ranked No. 8 and the Atlanta Falcons No. 18.

The Saints travel this week to play the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.
