NFL preseason power rankings

Before you go close icon

The NFL season is right around the corner, so let the debates begin.

Who will be No. 1 when all is said and done? Who should open the campaign as the favorite? We have the answer.

Below is the Associated Press' preseason poll, in which a national panel of 11 voters participated in the selection process. Each voter is among the 50 sports writers and broadcasters who choose the NFL's individual awards at the end of the season.

The AP Pro32 is determined by a simple points system based on how each voter ranks the NFL's 32 teams. A team receives 32 points for each first place vote, 31 for second place and so on through to the 32nd team, which receives one point.

The rankings are set by listing the teams' point totals from highest to lowest. The mathematical formula is the same as the one used for the AP Top 25 rankings for college football, men's basketball and women's basketball.
