Broncos #1 in AP Pro32 rankings Seahawks check in at #2

 

SCHUYLER DIXON, AP Sports Writer

It’s unanimous for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, even after their shakiest performance of the season.

Denver received all 12 first-place votes for the first time in the AP Pro32 rankings released Tuesday.

The Broncos (6-0) struggled with winless Jacksonville until scoring the last two touchdowns in a 35-19 victory Sunday.

Manning matched his season low with two TD passes against the Jaguars but still has a record 22 through six games heading into Sunday night’s return to Indianapolis, where Andrew Luck is in charge of the Colts’ offense now.

No. 2 Seattle (5-1) and third-ranked Kansas City (6-0) are separated by just two points. Both teams moved up one spot.

Rounding out the top 5 is New England at 4 and the New Orleans Saints at No. 5.
