Seahawks Top Associated Press NFL Preseason Power Rankings
With training camp opening Friday, the defending National football League champions start the preseason right where they finished up in the rankings after last season, in the No. 1 spot.
The Seahawks were followed in the rankings by San Francisco, Denver, New England, and Green Bay (tied with New Orleans) in the top five.
Pat Kirwan of SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com had this to say about Seattle.
"The world champions are still intact and have the ability to repeat, but that's a long way off."
At the bottom of the poll were the Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars and, at No. 32, the Oakland Raiders.
