  • Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs have taken the NFL by storm, and they now lead the MMQB Power Poll.
By The MMQB Staff
September 25, 2018

The Jaguars only last one week in the top spot, and now we have a new AFC team getting a turn at No. 1. The Saints made the biggest jump up, while the 49ers lost their franchise QB and had the biggest drop. And the Patriots have fallen “all the way”—by their standards at least—down to 11.
