NEW YORK (AP) — With nearly all NFL teams already a quarter of the way through the regular season, there are four teams off to a 4-0 start: the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, the Seattle Seahawks, the Green Bay Packers and the Buffalo Bills.

And those teams maintained the top four spots in the latest AP Pro32 poll.

The defending champion Chiefs received all 12 firstplace votes for 384 points in balloting Tuesday by media members who regularly cover the NFL.

“Not a vintage performance from Patrick Mahomes, whose two touchdown passes traveled a total of about 2 yards,” Newsday’s Bob Glauber said of the Chiefs’ win over the New England Patriots on Monday night.

“Still good enough to beat the Patriots to keep Kansas City unbeaten, and still good enough to complement a very, very good defense.”

The Seahawks followed at No. 2. Their 4-0 start is the second in franchise history. The previous time was in 2013 when they won the Super Bowl.

The Packers are No. 3 and enter their bye week after dominating winless Atlanta 30-16 on Monday night.

“Aaron Rodgers seems totally content with (coach Matt) LaFleur’s play calling,” said Fox Sports’ John Czarnecki.

The AFC East-leading Bills remained at No. 4 after holding off the Las Vegas Raiders.

“You could not have overestimated the leap Josh Allen would make in his third NFL season,” said Jenny Vrentas of The Monday Morning Quarterback.
