NEW YORK — It’s unanimous for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, even after their shakiest performance of the season.
Denver received all 12 first-place votes for the first time in the AP Pro32 rankings. The Broncos (6-0) struggled with winless Jacksonville until scoring the last two touchdowns in a 35-19 victory Sunday.
Manning matched his season low with two TD passes against the Jaguars but still has a record 22 through six games heading into Sunday night’s return to Indianapolis, where Andrew Luck is in charge of the Colts’ offense now.
No. 2 Seattle (5-1) and third-ranked Kansas City (6-0) are separated by just two points. Both teams moved up one spot.
New England jumped from seventh to fourth after handing New Orleans its first loss. The Saints, who were second a week ago, dropped to fifth.
