See where every teams stands in the NFL Power Rankings for the Divisional Round after another exciting weekend of playoff action.

As always, the NFL Power Rankings heading into the Divisional Round have left football fans with plenty to discuss after the Wild Card Round got off to a hot start.

From the Houston Texans pulling off an epic comeback over the Buffalo Bills to win in overtime to Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks defeating the Philadelphia Eagles on the road, the first weekend of playoff action certainly lived up to the hype.

For the most exciting game of the weekend, however, it was difficult to top the first game on Sunday that consisted of the Minnesota Vikings handing the New Orleans Saints a loss on the road in overtime to advance to the Divisional Round.

After watching the Tennessee Titans eliminate the defending champions in the New England Patriots, this seemed to have the potential to be the most surprising upset of the weekend since Bill Belichick and company always seem to find ways to kick things up this time of year.

But when taking into consideration that New Orleans was in the mix for the top overall seed in the NFC just a few weeks ago, a meeting at home with Minnesota and a quarterback with a history of struggling in the national spotlight seemed like the perfect opportunity to advance.

Instead, the Saints watched their season come to an end earlier than expected, and to top the frustration off, it should also be noted this marked the third year in a row that New Orleans lost in the playoffs on the final play of the game.
