The Seahawks, who also remained unbeaten with an overtime win in Houston, received the other three first-place votes from a panel of media members that regularly cover the NFL.

New Orleans, New England and Kansas City each moved up one place to round out of the top five. The Bears dropped from third to ninth after losing 40-32 to Detroit.
