Ballot and comments from AP Pro 32 panel voter Chris Berman of ESPN:

Week 9

CHRIS BERMAN (ESPN)

1. Atlanta _ Most impressive win of the year. Over 50 percent of 7-0’s make the Super Bowl.

2. New York Giants _ Didn’t quite need that seesaw, but win has them 2 1/2 up in division.

3. San Francisco _ Suffocating defense and Randy Moss. Could it be an SF daily double?

4. Green Bay _ Charles Woodson injury will take its toll, but not right away.

5. Houston _ Already breathing fire and now they’re rested. Look out!

6. New England _ Patriots beat British in 1776 … fife and drum. Just as impressive now.

7. Chicago _ Got away with win in “breather” game sign of a good team.

8. Baltimore _ Hopefully put bye week to great use.

9. Denver _ When the defense gets to play with a lead, even better.

10. Pittsburgh _ As usual, defense clamped down on a rookie quarterback.

11. Seattle _ Home games coming just when doctor ordered them.

12. Philadelphia _ Better start road back Monday night.

13. Dallas _ If they could only figure out the little things.

14. Detroit _ With Tigers gone, have stage to themselves.

15. Washington _ RG3 versus Cam _ appointment viewing.

16. Miami _ Quietly Joe Philbin and staff doing as fine a coaching job as anyone in NFL.

17. Minnesota _ Will need the 10 days to get ready for Seattle’s 12th Man.

18. New Orleans _ What was THAT?

19. San Diego _ What was THAT?

20. Tampa Bay _ Gotta love the way they compete.

21. Indianapolis _ Andrew Luck’s first road win and visit from coach Pagano another great weekend!

22. Arizona _ Moving in wrong direction.

23. New York Jets _ What was THAT?

24. St. Louis _ Nice “home” game.

25. Oakland _ Wasn’t pretty but a W is a W.

26. Cincinnati _ Hopefully regrouped during bye.

27. Tennessee _ Just when you think they’re jump-started, motor goes off.

28. Buffalo _ Needed bye week for these two road games at Houston and New England.

29. Cleveland _ Two October wins is a great sign.

30. Carolina _ Impressive in defeat in Chicago.

31. Jacksonville _ Played tough AGAIN in road loss.

32. Kansas City _ Everything NOT up-to-date in Kansas City.
