The Seahawks backed up last week's unanimous No. 1 vote by blowing out New Orleans and knocking the Saints from second to fifth in balloting from the 12-member panel that regularly covers the league.
Denver, New England, Carolina and the Saints got second-place votes, with the Broncos finishing 10 points ahead of a third-place tie between the Patriots and Panthers, who have won eight straight games.
New Orleans is another 11 points back in fifth after a 34-7 loss to Seattle. No. 6 San Francisco switched places with Kansas City after the Chiefs lost to the Broncos.
