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.

Kansas City and Baltimore would switch places, with the Ravens claiming the top spot.

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.
