Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season is officially in the books.

After watching the NFL’s opening week without any preseason games being played, there’s been a little bit of a shakeup in the Doug & Wolf weekly NFL power rankings.

Doug Franz, Ron Wolfley and Paul Calvisi all picked the Kansas City Chiefs to remain No. 1 and had the Baltimore Ravens in their top three, but that’s where the trio started to differ.

In fact, Franz was the only one to put the Cardinals in his power poll for the week for the first time since 2016.

Wolfley also had a little bit of a surprise pick, as he was the only one with the Pittsburgh Steelers in his top five. The former Cardinal said that the course of the regular season will prove that the Steelers are one of the best teams in the AFC.

And for all the grief Calvisi gave Franz for his picks this week, Calvisi and Franz did agree that at least one NFC West team belonged in the power poll — unlike Wolfley.

Here’s a look at the trio’s rankings of the top five teams in the NFL:

Doug Franz

1. Chiefs
2. Packers
3. Ravens
4. Cardinals
5. Seahawks

Ron Wolfley

1. Chiefs
2. Ravens
3. Steelers
4. Saints
5. Packers

Paul Calvisi

1. Chiefs
2. Ravens
3. Saints
4. Seahawks
5. Packers
