NEW YORK (AP) — The Carolina Panthers are a unanimous No. 1 in the AP Pro32 power rankings for the third week in a row, with the Denver Broncos taking another tumble following another loss.
Carolina improved to 14-0 with a wild 38-35 win over the New York Giants on Sunday, and received all 12 first-place votes Tuesday in balloting by the media members who regularly cover the league.
Arizona, New England and Seattle remained 2-3-4 after all won over the weekend.
Denver fell four spots to ninth after a loss at Pittsburgh, the Broncos' second straight defeat.
Washington (7-7) is 12th and the highest ranked team without a winning record.
