Patriots remain atop AP Pro32, followed by Dallas, Oakland (The Associated Press)

No surprises at the top of the AP Pro32 power rankings this week: New England and Dallas, at 7-1 owning the NFL’s best records, are 1-2. Moving up to the third spot for their highest ranking ever in the AP Pro32 are the Oakland Raiders. In voting by 12 media members who regularly cover the NFL, the Patriots are a unanimous choice once again for the top spot, even though they didn’t play last weekend.
