NEW YORK – Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs are No. 1 again.

At least for this week.

After holding off the Denver Broncos, the Chiefs moved up a spot and regained the top place in the latest AP Pro32 poll.

The defending champs received 11 of the 12 first-place votes for 383 points in balloting Wednesday by media members who regularly cover the NFL.

“Patrick Mahomes continues to solidify his case for a second regular-season MVP,” Newsday's Bob Glauber said. “In fact, it’s getting to the point where it’s not even close for second.”

The Chiefs head to Florida on Sunday to take on the improving Miami Dolphins.

“The 2020 Dolphins have already exceeded expectations, but have only one victory (the Los Angeles Rams) against a team currently above .500,” Sirius XM's Alex Marvez said.

“That’s what makes Sunday’s matchup against visiting Kansas City such an interesting measuring stick of how legitimate Miami is heading into a tough four-game stretch to end the season.”
