Ballot and comments from AP Pro 32 panel voter Rich Gannon of CBS Sports/Sirius XM:

Week 9

RICH GANNON (CBS Sports/Sirius XM)

1. Atlanta - Still undefeated for a reason, they can take the show on the road and dominate.

2. Houston - One of the most balanced teams in the game right now.

3. New York Giants - Built for the long haul and getting better each week.

4. Green Bay - Concerns with the running game overshadowed by Rodgers and the passing attack.

5. Chicago - Survived a scare vs. Carolina by once again scoring on defense.

6. San Francisco - Great defense, strong running game, excellent special teams and an outstanding coaching staff. Pretty solid!

7. New England - Is anybody else bored with Brady? He makes it look so easy each week!

8. Baltimore - Time to pump the brakes with their run defense and get Ray Rice cranked up in the run game.

9. Denver - Manning and the passing game finding their groove along with that defense. Watch out!

10. Pittsburgh - Is anybody paying attention to how well Roethlisberger is playing without his entire supporting cast?

11. Miami - Impressive road win over the Jets should come as no surprise because they are the better team right now.

12. Minnesota - Not their best performance on Thursday against Tampa. They need to get Ponder back on track quickly.

13. Detroit - Hate to think where they would be without Stafford. He gives them a chance each week.

14. Seattle - This is a team to keep an eye on as their head coach suggest. Very close to putting it all together.

15. Washington - Pittsburgh had a plan to contain RG3 in the running game. Others will look very close at that film.

16. Tampa Bay - Very impressed with the passing game the last couple of weeks. Freeman greeting the ball down the field will only help Doug Martin and the run game.

17. Dallas - Better on defense but the OL and turnovers are holding them back.

18. Philadelphia - QB change probably necessary and warranted.

19. Indianapolis - First road win for Luck and the Colts. Rolling right now after winning three of last four.

20. Tennessee - Just a matter of time before they go back to Locker. That being said, the defense isn't getting it done.

21. San Diego - Ugly comments from GM AJ Smith followed by an ugly performance in Cleveland. This team is in trouble.

22. New York Jets - Time for Tebow? They need a spark!

23. Cincinnati - Lost three straight heading into bye and now host Denver this weekend. Do I hear four?

24. Cleveland - Nice win last week holding the Chargers to two FG's. Richardson running strong right now.

25. New Orleans - Worst defense in the league right now.

26. Oakland - Playing better on defense and doing just enough on offense.

27. Arizona - Have to fix the offense and you might want to start with the offensive line.

28. Buffalo - Not good enough to overcome all the mistakes.

29. St. Louis - Snead and Fisher will get things turned around but it takes time ... and patience!

30. Carolina - Really surprised Cam isn't playing better. Things falling apart around him don't help.

31. Jacksonville - Hard to watch on offense.

32. Kansas City - Most disappointing team in the league.
