Last we checked, the New Orleans Saints were the defending champions thanks to a 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV.

As we unveil the 2010 training camp edition of ESPN.com's NFL Power Rankings, the Colts and the Saints rank Nos. 1 and 2, respectively. A preseason Power Rankings title is no replacement for the Lombardi trophy, but the Colts can take some solace in the distinction.

The list was determined by polling ESPN.com NFL national writer John Clayton (AFC East, NFC East) and James Walker (AFC North, NFC North), Paul Kuharsky (AFC South, AFC West) and Mike Sando (NFC South, NFC West) of our NFL Blog Network.

The Minnesota Vikings, Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens round out our top five.

Among the big movers since the Week 18 edition of the 2009 Power Rankings was published in January: The Washington Redskins leaped from No. 29 to No. 20, thanks in part to the addition of quarterback Donovan McNabb. The Eagles, who traded McNabb to their NFC East rivals, tumbled from No. 7 at the end of last season to No. 17 this summer.

Look for the next edition of our Power Rankings on Sept. 7, two days before the Vikings visit the Saints to kick off the regular season.
