Doug & Wolf power poll, Week 6: Wolf is all in on Packers
Week 5 is in the books, and boy was it something.
The Pittsburgh Steelers, the Seattle Seahawks, the Green Bay Packers and the Tennessee Titans remain as the last four undefeated teams this season.
Shockingly, just one of those teams took a top spot in Arizona Sports’ Doug & Wolf Week 6 power poll.
That honor goes to the Packers. Ron Wolfley feels Green Bay is the top dog in the NFL, which boasts a plus-51 point differential through four games. The Packers enter their matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coming off of a bye.
Doug Franz and Paul Calvisi went a different route, going with two one-loss teams in the Baltimore Ravens and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Franz feels Baltimore’s defense sets them above the rest, while Calvisi believes the Chiefs, even with a loss in Week 5, are still so far ahead of the field as the best team in the league.
The Ravens are coming off their best showing of the season defensively, limiting the Cincinnati Bengals to just three points in Baltimore’s lopsided 27-3 win.
The Chiefs, on the other hand, suffered their first loss of the season after finding themselves in an absolute shootout with AFC West foe Las Vegas Raiders. Patrick Mahomes’ 340 passing yards and three total touchdowns were not enough in the 40-32 loss at home.
