Ballot and comments from AP Pro 32 panel voter Chris Berman of ESPN: CHRIS BERMAN (ESPN) 1. New York Giants - After all, they are defending champs. 2. New England Patriots - After all, Patriots are defending AFC champs. 3. Green Bay Packers - After all, Packers had best record last year. 4. Baltimore Ravens - After all, Ravens should have been in Super Bowl. 5. San Francisco 49ers - After all, 49ers could have easily been in Super Bowl. 6. Philadelphia Eagles - This is Eagles' season to dream. 7. Pittsburgh Steelers - Even Steelers fell under Tebow's spell. 8. Detroit Lions - Lions learned how to win - can they do it when everyone's looking? 9. New Orleans Saints - Brees is 70 percent passer even with me coaching. 10. Denver Broncos - I heard Broncos acquired Peyton Manning. 11. Chicago Bears - Bears were rolling until offensive injuries. 12. Houston Texans - Raised eyebrows despite all the injuries. 13. Atlanta Falcons - Must figure out playoffs are different than regular season. 14. Buffalo Bills - Most excitement in Western New York in offseason in years. 15. New York Jets - Beauty of Week 1; either 0-4 Jets or 0-4 Bills will be 1-0 and quiet folks down. 16. San Diego Chargers - First time in decade Bolts won't be favored in AFC West; could help. 17. Cincinnati Bengals - Bengals won all the games they should have. 18. Dallas Cowboys - Romo not the problem: How about protecting lead? 19. Tennessee Titans - Hope that Locker watching Hasselbeck will work like Rodgers watching Favre. 20. Seattle Seahawks - 4-0 preseason with young, eager team always a good sign. 21. Kansas City Chiefs - Healthy now, maybe 2010 wasn't fluke. 22. Oakland Raiders - Everything is new for Silver & Black; anything is possible in this division. 23. Carolina Panthers - Year 2 of Cam Newton like looking forward to Christmas. 24. Washington Redskins - RG3 provides hope and excitement. 25. Cleveland Browns - Trent Richardson should solve lots of problems. 26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Josh Freeman is man on mission. 27. Arizona Cardinals - Finished strong. Maybe Patrick Peterson can return six punts for TDs. 28. Miami Dolphins - New school of fish. 29. Indianapolis Colts - Luck looks ready. 30. Minnesota Vikings - Thank goodness Adrian Peterson appears to be a fast healer. 31. St. Louis Rams - Jeff Fisher didn't take this job to fail. 32. Jacksonville Jaguars - Showdowns with Colts won't be for division title. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
