Seahawks No. 1 in AP Pro32 power rankings

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Seattle Seahawks have jumped ahead of the Denver Broncos to take over the top spot in the AP Pro32 power rankings, just ahead of the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs.

The Broncos, who lost 39-33 to Indianapolis on Sunday night, dropped from a unanimous No. 1 a week ago to third in balloting by 12 media members who regularly cover the NFL.

The Saints and Colts round out the top five.

Seattle received seven first-place votes after improving to 6-1 with a 34-22 rout of the Cardinals last Thursday. The Chiefs earned four first-place votes after a 17-16 victory over the Texans left them as the NFL’s lone unbeaten team. Indianapolis also earned a first-place vote.

The Jaguars were ranked last for the seventh straight week.
