Landmark Power Poll


by C.K. Rairden
Landmark columnist

Sure the Chiefs played the worst coached team in the NFL. But seven straight drives for scores? The Chiefs get a nice bump in the Power Poll.

The NFC Least brings up the rear with the bottom three teams.
The Rams continue for the third straight week at #1. Here's the complete list:


1) 94 RAMS—Number 1 ‘til they lose.

2) 91 PACKERS—Sleeper. RB Ahman Green could have a breakout season. (week one write up continues)

3) 89 RAVENS—Dominated the Broncos offense.

4) 88 BRONCOS—Is Eddy Mac’s leg really broken?

5) 88 GIANTS—How to win ugly games.

7) 87 DOLPHINS—Whew the Rams really are that good.

8) 87 RAIDERS—Seattle, it’s good for what ails you.

9) 87 EAGLES—2 wins over Dallas and Seattle. This week Arizona. Who makes these schedules?

11) 86 49ERS—Pretty good club.

12) 86 CHARGERS—Headed towards 5-0.

13) 85 FALCONS—Forget Vick, the key here is Jamal Anderson.(week one write up continues) Anderson out with another ACL injury. Bummer.

15) 85 JAGUARS—Mark Brunnell—"Someone answer that damn phone.”

18) 85 VIKINGS—Lucky win.

19) 85 TITANS—Season on the line.

20) 84 PANTHERS—Not quite yet.
