The New England Patriots also are 3-0 despite playing without superstar Tom Brady.The past two Super Bowl winners also share the top spot in the latest AP Pro32 poll released on Tuesday.The Patriots received six first-place votes and the Broncos earned five and both have 377 points from balloting by media members who regularly cover the NFL.Its the second consecutive week for a tie at the top spot in the poll. Last week the Patriots and Steelers were tied at No. 1.The Patriots will play their last game without the suspended Brady when they host the Bills on Sunday.The genius of Bill Belichick has the Patriots in early control of the AFC East. As per usual, Newsdays Bob Glauber said.One more week to go before Tom Brady returns, presumably picks up where he left off and keeps the Jets, Bills and Dolphins spinning their wheels in hopeless pursuit of the perennial AFC East champs and Super Bowl contenders.The defending champion Broncos will try to stay unbeaten when they head to Tampa Bay.The Vikings, who are 3-0 despite injuries to Teddy Bridgewater and Adrian Peterson, received the other first-place vote and are No. 3 in the poll.Getting off to a 3-0 start despite losing their franchise QB, once-in-a-generation RB and starting LT in the span of a few weeks is Patriots-esque, said Jenny Vrentas of The Monday Morning Quarterback.Credit to head coach Mike Zimmer.The Eagles, led by rookie quarterback Carson Wentz, are also 3-0 and in first place in the NFC East. Philly jumped 11 spots to No. 4 in the poll after routing the Steelers 34-3 on Sunday.More popular than Philly cheesesteaks, rookie QB Carson Wentz has already won over a demanding fan base, said Ira Kaufman of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.The Packers jumped four spots to round out the top five.Seattle also made a big leap, moving six spots to No. 6.AFC North rivals Baltimore and Pittsburgh are tied for No. 7. The Chiefs are No. 9 after forcing eight turnovers in a rout of the Jets.What a performance by the Chiefs defense, which is still missing Justin Houston but has the leagues next great young cornerback, Marcus Peters, Vrentas said.And the Panthers, despite being 1-2 on the season, round out the top 10.Cam Newton is getting pummeled in the early going, as the Panthers continue the trend of Super Bowl losers who struggle the year after, Glauber said.Eight sacks, three interceptions and a sore ankle for Newton in a lopsided home loss to the resurgent Vikings.After consecutive losses in prime time, the Bears replaced the Browns at the bottom of the poll at No. 32.After three demoralizing weeks, Soldier Field is an afterthought compared to Wrigley Field, Kaufman said.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL DeMarcus Cousins Team USA Jersey . -- Sergey Tolchinksy scored his second goal of the game 3:56 into overtime as the Sault Ste.

"Id love to look at those opportunities as they arise," Pierce said in an interview from his Winnipeg eatery. http://www.teamusaolympicsshop.us/Olympics-James-Harden-Usa-Jersey/ .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. With only four games on the slate Thursday, which players you pick for DFS basketball will be crucial. Our experts are here to give their recommendations on who to build around and who to skip.Building blocksJoe Kaiser -- Klay Thompson, Golden State WarriorsThompsons slow start to the season dropped his DFS salary into the high $5,000 to low $6,000 range on DraftKings and FanDuel, and I like him tonight for a number of reasons. For one, he has started to really heat up the past two games, going for 18 points in the first quarter against Dallas on Wednesday. On top of that, this Warriors-Nuggets game is one with the highest over/under of the night (220 points) and should be a close game considering how well the Nuggets have played the Warriors in recent years. Its a night to load up on Warriors, and Thompson is the best value of the bunch considering his very low price point; rostering him allows you to pay up at other positions, and if youre smart, youll pay up for other Warriors.Renee Miller -- Emmanuel Mudiay, Denver NuggetsThe Warriors have taken a step back on defense so far this season, and have been the top fantasy matchup for opposing point guards going into tonights game, which has a sky-high point total (221) and with Steph Curry questionable, is expected to be fairly competitive. Mudiay is shooting really well now, with 53 real points in his past two games, and typically supplies at least 3-4 rebounds and assists per game with a steal or two. His upside, if he were to excel in all phases of his game, is much higher than weve seen so far, so I like Mudiay as a safe cash-game play with real upside tonight.Al Zeidenfeld --?Draymond Green, Golden State WarriorsIve been living in the midrange salary tier for the past week and haave found with the tighter pricing on DraftKings its been the way to go. Tracy McGrady Team USA Jersey. Green is cheap enough, has multi-positional eligibility that includes center and has exceeded his salary expectation each game this season in no small part because of his contributions in so many stat categories.FadeJoe Kaiser -- DAngelo Russell, Los Angeles LakersLast season, any game against the Sacramento Kings was a stacking opportunity as the Kings not only struggled on defense but also led the league in pace. This season, only Utah is playing slower than the Dave Joerger-led Kings, and that is bad news as far as DFS goes. Less possessions equals fewer opportunities to accumulate stats, and with Russell priced at $6,000 or above on both DraftKings and FanDuel, I am looking at other options at point guard tonight.Renee Miller -- Rajon Rondo, Chicago BullsRondos price is very fair, but he still isnt hitting value. At least in his past four games he hasnt. Rondo is and always has been a three-four category player, but the difference now is that hes in the low-mid single digits across the board rather than a legitimate triple-double threat. This decline in performance, along with his price and an exceptionally difficult matchup with a Heat team that ranks 28th in fantasy points allowed to point guards so far this season has me looking elsewhere at the point tonight.Al Zeidenfeld -- Julius Randle, Los Angeles LakersHard to honestly full fade anyone on a short slate like tonight, but based on where hes priced, Randle is a prime candidate because of how volatile his production has been in relation to his elevated price tag.
