A week ago, our three-person Doug & Wolf panel of Doug Franz, Ron Wolfley and Paul Calvisi were split on who was the best team in the NFL.

Now, not so much.

Franz is still rolling with the Kansas City Chiefs after their 26-14 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. The New Orleans Saints’ 51-14 clobbering over the Cincinnati Bengals didn’t sway him to change up his top two teams.

It did, however, convince co-host Ron Wolfley, who joined Paul Calvisi in naming the Saints as the best team after the latter had already tabbed New Orleans as such. Wolf swapped the Saints for his previous No. 1 team, the New England Patriots, who suffered a 34-10 defeat at the hands of the Tennessee Titans.

And this week, the Doug & Wolf show regulars welcomed a special guest, former Cardinal and current Buffalo Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander. He fell in line with Wolf and Calvisi by picking New Orleans atop his power poll of the five best NFL teams.

Here’s a look at each of their picks after Week 10.
