Chiefs, Seahawks share 1st place in AP poll

DAVE CAMPBELL, AP Pro Football Writer

There’s a tie this week atop the Associated Press power poll: Kansas City caught up to Seattle.

The Chiefs and Seahawks each had 369 points in the latest AP Pro32 rankings, released Tuesday. Kansas City, the NFL’s only undefeated team, was in second place last week. Both teams won again, but Seattle had to hang on in a 14-9 win Monday night at St. Louis.

The Denver Broncos were a close third after rallying to romp past Washington, with 360 points from the 12-person panel. The Chiefs had six first-place votes, the Seahawks four and the Broncos two.

The New Orleans Saints were fourth, and the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers were tied for the fifth spot.
