Broncos become top team in AP Pro32 poll

Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos dismantled the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens in the season opener.

Then they delivered a convincing victory on the road against the quarterback's younger brother and the rest of the Giants.

The Broncos held off the Seattle Seahawks for the top spot in this week's AP Pro32 power rankings, released Tuesday. The Broncos had eight first-place votes from the panel in the latest poll, moving up one slot.

After their commanding win over San Francisco, the Seahawks swooped in to take the other four first-place votes and settle in at No. 2. The 49ers, after tallying seven first-place votes last week, fell two spots to third.

Seattle, which was fifth last week, beat the 49ers 29-3.
