Ballot and comments from AP Pro 32 panel voter John Lynch of Fox Sports:
JOHN LYNCH (Fox Sports)
1. Atlanta _ Everyone was looking for cracks in the armor of the Falcons. After their dismantling of the Eagles, they made a statement that they are the class of the league right now at 7-0!
2. Houston _ Well rested out of a well timed bye the Bills are next as the Texans attempt to make their run.
4. Chicago _ The Bears let the Panthers hang in there, but finished and moved to 6-1.
5. San Francisco _ The 49ers are getting back to the dominance we became accustomed to in 2011. They physically dominated the Cardinals in all phases on Monday night.
6. Green Bay _ The Pack is getting hot and now host a Cardinals team on a short week.
7. New England _ The Pats were dominant in London and get a week off to enjoy it.
9. Baltimore _ The Ravens are well rested after their bye, but the bye didn’t bring back Ray Lewis and or CB Lardarius Webb.
10. Pittsburgh _ The Steelers are starting to look like the Steelers.
11. Seattle _ Seattle had Detroit on the ropes but this team needs to learn to finish or they will be average.
12. Minnesota _ The Vikings still are trying to figure out what hit them as the Bucs came into the Metrodome on Thursday night and dominated. Another tough test this week in Seattle.View Entire Story
