Eagles remain No. 1 in the latest AP Pro32 poll
NEW YORK - Despite a week off, the Philadelphia Eagles are still on a roll.
The Eagles, one of two teams on a seven-game winning streak, maintained their top spot in the latest AP Pro 32 poll.
Philadelphia received all 12 first-place votes for 384 points Tuesday in balloting by media members who regularly cover the NFL. The Eagles (8-1) are coming off their bye and face NFC East rival the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.
The New England Patriots, who have won five in a row and are coming off a 41-16 rout of the reeling Denver Broncos, moved up a spot to No. 2.
The Pittsburgh Steelers slipped a spot to No. 3. The surging New Orleans Saints, who have won seven in a row since starting the season 0-2, moved up two spots to No. 4. The Los Angeles Rams and Minnesota Vikings, both on four-game winning streaks, are next at Nos. 5 and 6. Those teams will meet this weekend in Minneapolis.
