Detroit Lions No. 11 In 'AP Pro32' Poll

The Detroit Lions are ranked No. 11 in the Associated Press' first-ever "AP Pro32" poll, which was released Tuesday.

↵

The poll, which is akin to the AP Top 25 poll in college football, ranks each of the NFL's 32 teams. It compiles votes given by a 12-person panel. A panelist's No. 1 team gets 32 points, and the last-place team gets one.

The Green Bay Packers claimed the top spot with 372 points, just 12 points shy of the maximum. The No. 2 team was the New England Patriots (369), and No. 3 was the New York Giants (362).

↵

The Lions were tied at No. 11 with the Chicago Bears. Each team earned 257 points, 14 points behind the 10th-place Denver Broncos. The Minnesota Vikings were the only NFC North team not in the Top 11; they were No. 29.

↵

The panel of voters is made up of names that a lot of NFL fans will recognize: Chris Berman, Cris Collinsworth, Bob Glauber, Rich Gannon and other pundits.

The last-place team was the indianapolis Indianapolis Colts, who received just 26 points.
