NEW YORK – All the votes are in.

And the Pittsburgh Steelers kept the top spot in the latest AP Pro32 poll.

The Steelers received 10 of the 12 first-place votes for 382 points in balloting Tuesday by media members who regularly cover the NFL.

The Steelers improved to 7-0 for the second time in franchise history after holding off the Baltimore Ravens 28-24 on Sunday.

“It’s not quite the Steel Curtain defense of the 1970s, but it’s as good as there is in today’s NFL,” Newsday's Bob Glauber said. “The Steelers solved Lamar Jackson to continue as the NFL’s only unbeaten team, and Ben Roethlisberger continues his remarkable comeback to put Pittsburgh into the Super Bowl conversation.”

The Ravens dropped two spots to No. 5 after the loss.

The Kansas City Chiefs stayed at No. 2 after getting the remaining two first-place votes and finishing with 374 points.

The Seattle Seahawks moved up a spot to No. 3 after handling the San Francisco 49ers.
