There’s no debate about the Baltimore Ravens.

Heading into Week 12 of the season, the 8-2 AFC North leaders remain atop the Doug & Wolf NFL power poll. Just ask Doug Franz, Ron Wolfley, Paul Calvisi and special guest Kyle Vanden Bosch.

There is, however, some debate about who is on the Ravens’ heels. Three members of our esteemed panel have the 9-1 New England Patriots as the second-best team in the league, but Franz went out on a limb and has the San Francisco 49ers (9-1) ahead of the Pats.

Franz, Wolfley and Vanden Bosch all have the New Orleans Saints (8-2) and Seattle Seahawks (8-2) sitting in their respective top-five rankings, but Calvisi has the most unique board. He isn’t buying the Niners, instead placing the Packers (8-2) as the No. 3 team in the NFL, followed by Seattle and New Orleans.

Here’s a full look at each of the individual Doug & Wolf power poll rankings for Week 12.
