Ballot and comments from AP Pro 32 panel voter Chris Berman of ESPN:

Week 17


1. San Francisco 49ers - Admittedly, a HUGE mulligan.

2. Denver Broncos - Fourth time Peyton has had a 10-game winning


3. Green Bay Packers - Like Santa, Aaron Rodgers ready to deliver.

4. New England Patriots - Not the best two weeks the Patriots have

ever had.

5. Atlanta Falcons - Revving up like a team that expects to charge

through the playoffs.

6. Seattle Seahawks - 150 points in three weeks is legendary.

7. Baltimore Ravens - THAT'S what I'm talking about!

8. Houston Texans - Hard to believe they could blow a bye.

9. Chicago Bears - Defense scoring again. In time to save playoffs?

10. Washington Redskins - Six-game winning streak longest for Skins

since 1996.

11. Minnesota Vikings - Proof the team can win without 200 yards

rushing from Adrian Peterson, like they did in September.

12. Dallas Cowboys - How much can the heart take?

13. Cincinnati Bengals - Huge moment for Bengals clinching playoffs in

Pittsburgh. First time back-to-back postseasons since 1981-82.

14. Indianapolis Colts - Magical playoff run, even winning when they

allow 300 yards rushing.

15. New York Giants - Uneasy is the head that wears the crown.

16. New Orleans Saints - Who knows where they'd be without September.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers - Playoffs missed on 40th anniversary of

Immaculate Reception is sacrilege.

18. Carolina Panthers - Nice December winning streak.

19. San Diego Chargers - Eleven sacks and Antonio Gates passing Lance

Alworth in team touchdown receiving annals.

20. St. Louis Rams - If they register huge upset at Seattle, they'll

finish undefeated in tough division.

21. Detroit Lions - Congratulations to Calvin Johnson. Now he sets his

sights on 2,000.

22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Tough finish to promising season.

23. Cleveland Browns - Now their star rookies are getting hurt.

24. Miami Dolphins - Will finish season better than expected.

25. New York Jets - Who's next? Al Woodall??

26. Buffalo Bills - Can't believe Bills at Jets isn't flex game.

27. Philadelphia Eagles - Almost counts only in horseshoes.

28. Tennessee Titans - Snow and cold not their thing.

29. Arizona Cardinals - On their fourth quarterback now: Brian Hoyer.

30. Oakland Raiders - Two in a row too much to ask.

31. Kansas City Chiefs - Gave fans nice Christmas present with 300

yards rushing.

32. Jacksonville Jaguars - Gave fans nice Christmas present with sharp

effort versus Patriots.
