For the third time in four weeks, the Seattle Seahawks drew every first-place vote in the AP Pro32 power rankings from a nationwide panel of media members who cover the NFL. Seattle easily outdistanced Denver in Tuesday’s balloting.
Last week, the Broncos received two first-place selections. But after losing to San Diego, they fell 19 points behind the Seahawks in the power poll.
San Francisco was third, followed by Kansas City and Carolina.
Several division leaders dropped after losses. New England fell from fourth to sixth; New Orleans from third to seventh; Philadelphia from ninth to 13th; and Detroit from 14th to 17th.
Washington and Houston, both division winners in 2013, were 31st and 32nd.
