NEW YORK (AP) -- It's almost unanimous: The Denver Broncos are still the top team in the NFL.
Denver received 11 first-place votes Tuesday for the AP Pro32 power rankings, which are decided by a 12-member media panel that regularly covers the league.
The Broncos (5-1) are coming off a 42-17 rout of the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. Peyton Manning had 318 yards passing and four touchdowns, breaking Brett Favre's record for career TD passes.
Dallas (6-1) got the other first-place vote. The Cowboys topped the New York Giants 31-21 for their sixth consecutive victory.
The Philadelphia Eagles moved up a spot to No. 3, followed by the Indianapolis Colts and the Arizona Cardinals.
The Colts proved they're not just as good as Andrew Luck with a 27-0 shutout of the skidding Cincinnati Bengals.

-- L.A. Dodgers pitcher Dan Haren underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder. The Dodgers say it was a 30-minute procedure on Haren's non-throwing shoulder to clean out bursitis and the AC joint, and he should be good to go by spring training. The 34-year-old right-hander had a 13-11 record with a 4.02 ERA this season.
NEW YORK (AP) -- NBA owners have voted down proposed changes to the league's draft lottery system, thus keeping the existing system in place for now.
The team with the worst record will still have a 25 percent chance at getting the top pick and cannot drop lower than fourth. Earlier in the week there appeared to be enough support for reforms that would make it more difficult for teams with the worst records to secure the top pick in the draft.
UNDATED (AP) -- The Maple Leafs and Senators were scheduled to face-off tonight in Ottawa but because of shootings today in that city the game has been postponed. A gunman shot and killed a Canadian soldier standing guard at a war memorial in the country's capital, then entered Parliament, where dozens of shots rang out, according to police and witnesses.
The Pittsburgh Penguins played "O Canada" before their game against Philadelphia in tribute to the soldier, corporal Nathan Cirillo . A sell-out crowd belted out the Canadian national anthem as the Canadian flag was flashed on the scoreboard and projected onto the ice.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Capitals defenseman John Erskine has had surgery to repair a disk in his neck. The team says Erskine is scheduled to start his rehabilitation program in the next few weeks.

CONROE, Texas (AP) -- A prosecution request to remove the judge handling the felony child abuse case against Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson has been denied.
Montgomery County state District Judge Kelly Case will remain on the case following a recusal hearing on Wednesday in suburban Houston. Retired Tarrant County District Judge Jeff Walker denied a request by prosecutors, who had accused Case of being biased against them.
Peterson is charged with injury to a child for using a wooden switch to discipline his 4-year-old son. He is on paid leave and Case has set a tentative trial date of Dec. 1.
ASHBURN, VA. (AP) -- Redskins' coach Jay Gruden (GROO'-dehn) says there's a chance that injured starting quarterback Robert Griffin III might be able to play in Monday night's game with Dallas. For now, Colt McCoy will start the game but Gruden says Griffin is a "wild card."
Gruden says Griffin still needs to be cleared for full contact and satisfy the coaches that he's ready in order to play.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Colts linebacker Erik Walden has been fined $27,562 after being ejected for making contact with an official during Sunday's victory over Cincinnati. Walden says he was trying to move around umpire Bruce Stritesky and that he didn't mean to bump into him.
Indianapolis, which led 10-0 at the time of the incident, beat Cincinnati 27-0 for its fifth consecutive victory.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia was expected to file a request with the NCAA for tailback Todd Gurley's eligibility to be reinstated. The SEC's leading rusher has been suspended for the last two games while Georgia investigated allegations he broke NCAA rules by receiving improper benefits. Georgia said in the statement released this morning it "hopes for and expects" a prompt ruling by the NCAA, although it is unclear if the university has filed the request.
SINGAPORE (AP) -- Serena Williams has suffered one of the most lopsided losses in her career as she was routed 6-0, 6-2 by Simona Halep (HAL'-ehp) at the WTA Finals in Singapore. The last time Williams, who has won 18 Grand Slam tournaments, managed to win just two games in a WTA Tour or Grand Slam match was in 1998 when she was 16.
The loss in the round-robin match snapped Williams' 16-match winning streak at the year-end championships, where she is the two-time defending champion.
Williams calls the one-sided loss to Halep "very embarrassing."
