By The Associated Press
NEW YORK -- The unbeaten Atlanta Falcons remain first in the AP Pro32 NFL power rankings, with the New York Giants gaining ground after a thrilling win over the Washington Redskins.
The lone remaining team without a loss receives 10 first-place votes and 378 points Tuesday from The Associated Press' 12-member panel of media members who regularly cover the NFL.
The Giants, who beat the Redskins 27-23 on Eli Manning's 77-yard scoring pass to Victor Cruz with 1:13 left in the game, have drawn two first-place votes and 366 points. Last week, the Giants had one-first place vote and trailed the Falcons by 17 points.
New Orleans made the biggest move after its second straight win, advancing six spots to No. 17 despite a 2-4 record.
Baltimore, 43-13 losers to Houston, tumbled five places to eighth. The Texans are third with 362 points.
