The results are in and the Seattle Seahawks are tops in the N.F.L.
At least, in the pre-season Power Rankings compiled by ESPN.com

Seattle's strong finish to 2012, combined with the signing of the top two free agants on the market, as well as trading for superstar Percy Harvin, have made the Hawks the sweetheart pick going into the 2013 campaign.

Rounding out the top 10 (in descending order) are the San Francisco 49'ers, Denver Broncos, Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers, houston Texans, defending champion Baltimore Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals.
