Published:
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos dismantled the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens in their season opener. Then they delivered a convincing victory on the road against Manning's younger brother and the rest of the New York Giants.
The strong start helped the Broncos hold off the Seattle Seahawks for the top spot in this week's AP Pro32 power rankings, released Tuesday. The Broncos (2-0) moved up one spot from second after receiving eight first-place votes.
"Denver looks Super Bowl good right now," Newsday columnist Bob Glauber said.
After their 29-3 rout of San Francisco on Sunday night, the Seahawks (2-0) garnered the other four first-place votes and claimed the No. 2 spot. The 49ers (1-1) slipped to third after being ranked No. 1 last week.
The Seahawks have won nine consecutive home games dating back to last season.
"Can anyone go into Seattle and get a win?" asked voter Pat Kirwan of CBSSports.com and SiriusXM satellite radio.
Voters have even begun to envision a Denver-Seattle Super Bowl.
"I'm not convinced Peyton can beat Seahawks' secondary," wrote John Czarnecki of FoxSports.com.
Houston (2-0) and Green Bay (1-1) rounded out the top five. NBC Sports analyst Tony Dungy raised a question about the Texans.
"Two come-from-behind wins. Is that good or bad?" the former Indianapolis Colts coach asked.
The Jacksonville Jaguars, the Seahawks' opponents Sunday in Seattle, were the unanimous choice for last place in the 32-team poll. The Jaguars (0-2) have scored just 11 points over two games.
