The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence — When’s Dan Hanzus does the weekly Power Rankings for each team throughout the season, he had a simple rule to begin the season. He would never take the defending Super Bowl champions out of the No. 1 spot in the Power Rankings until they lost their first game. Then came last week, when he examined the Ravens’ dominant start coupled with a ho-hum Chiefs performance against the Chargers in Week 2 and opted to reverse course. Kansas City and Baltimore would switch places, with the Ravens claiming the top spot. To quote Hanzus, “Well yeah … I’m an idiot.” Safe to say the Chiefs are back where they belong in the top spot of the 2020 NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 4. The surprise was that last week’s top ranked squad, Baltimore, falls to No. 3. To see the new No. 2 team as well as this week’s biggest risers and fallers, click here.

Grinding Out The Profits

From this week’s PLAYBOOK FOOTBALL NEWSLETTER: NFL away teams, following an overtime tie, are 0-15 SU and 3-12 ATS since 1988. With Philadelphia visiting San Francisco and coming off last week’s tie-game against Cincinnati, the Eagles could be wrapped tighter than a two-dollar watch.
