Eagles remain No. 1 in the latest AP 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 firstplace 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.
“After a shaky start, the Pats are starting to look like themselves behind a resurgent defense,” said Ira Kaufman of SB Nation Radio afterward. “That’s a bad look for the rest of the AFC.”
The Pittsburgh Steelers slipped a spot to No. 3. They open the Week 11 schedule, hosting the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night.
“Had a big scare in Indy,” Fox Sports’ John Czarnecki said of the Steelers overcoming a 17-3 secondhalf deficit to top last-place Indianapolis 20-17.
