LISTEN: Doug and Wolf NFL Power Poll heading into Wild Card Weekend

Every Wednesday (Thursday this week), Doug and Wolf roll out their top five teams in the NFL on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM.

Heading into the playoffs, both hosts had a little different look to their respective pecking orders.

Franz had the Kansas City Chiefs breaking into his top five for the first time all season.

“How many games can you win in a row before somebody says you’re good,” Franz asked about the Chiefs, who won 10 straight to close the regular season.

In a twist, Franz didn’t crown a number-one team. “Nobody deserves to be number one,” he said.

Wolfley disagreed, tabbing the Arizona Cardinals as the top team heading into the postseason despite their 36-6 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 17.

“I believe it. You look at the roster 1 through 53, this is the best team the Cardinals have ever fielded, in my opinion,” Wolf said. “Offensively and defensively, we’re talking about top five.

“The Cardinals didn’t game plan to beat the Seahawks. That sent a message to everybody and oh by the way, ‘Carson Palmer is only going to play a half.’ That leaked out and I will tell you right now, those guys in that locker room weren’t ready to play that game in any way, shape or form. Period.”
