Ballot and comments from AP Pro 32 panel voter Chris Berman of ESPN:

Week 8

CHRIS BERMAN (ESPN)

1. Atlanta Falcons - Last of the Mohicans.

2. New York Giants - Eli clutch, as usual.

3. San Francisco 49ers - Back to winning slugfests.

4. Green Bay Packers - Now defense helping Aaron Rodgers ... strong

combination.

5. Houston Texans - Demolition of Ravens an absolute eye-opener.

6. Chicago Bears - Classic black and blue division win.

7. Baltimore Ravens - Use of bye week to retool without Ray Lewis a

pivotal time.

8. New England Patriots - Win over Jets not artistic, but they'll take

it.

9. Denver Broncos - Needed rest after latest comeback by Peyton.

10. Pittsburgh Steelers - Needed road division win badly. Now back in

race with Baltimore's loss.

11. Seattle Seahawks - Close Thursday road loss at San Francisco

nothing to hang head over.

12. Philadelphia Eagles - Usually magic after bye week ... Atlanta

will be a tall order.

13. Minnesota Vikings - Have replaced Lions in nice black and blue

division race.

14. Washington Redskins - RG3 makes anything possible.

15. Dallas Cowboys - Can they sweep the Giants?

16. Detroit Lions - Played tough but shot themselves in foot ...

again.

17. New Orleans Saints - From interim interim coach to interim coach.

18. San Diego Chargers - Doesn't feel like it but still in first.

19. Arizona Cardinals - Must dig in Monday night versus 49ers.

20. New York Jets - Why not use Tebow near goal line?

21. Miami Dolphins - Maybe catch Jets on downer after Patriots loss.

22. St. Louis Rams - Tough to be up-and-coming and deal with Aaron

Rodgers.

23. Indianapolis Colts - Coach Pagano home from hospital much better

news than win.

24. Tennessee Titans - Matt Hasselbeck hasn't forgotten how to play

clutch football, especially if Chris Johnson is back.

25. Cincinnati Bengals - Tough task to beat Steelers when Pittsburgh

needs game.

26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Hard to get closer than that.

27. Oakland Raiders - A win is a win is a win.

28. Buffalo Bills - Tough loss, especially since that was only home

game in six weeks.

29. Carolina Panthers - Remember ... they're still very young.

30. Kansas City Chiefs - Hoping for the mighty Quinn.

31. Cleveland Browns - Played tough in loss.

32. Jacksonville Jaguars - Played tough in loss.
