NEW YORK (AP) — The New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers remained the league's only unbeaten teams going into Week 12.

Not surprisingly, both teams also retained the top spots in the latest AP Pro32 rankings on Tuesday.

The Patriots received 10 of the 12 first-place votes in balloting by the 12 media members who regularly cover the league.

The Patriots earned a 20-13 win over the Buffalo Bills on Monday night.
