New No. 1 as 49ers hold off Saints, Pats No. 3 in AP Pro32

Being the NFL's last undefeated team is never easy, and the San Francisco 49ers have bumped aside the New England Patriots in another category as well. The 49ers are the first team besides the defending Super Bowl champs to sit atop the AP Pro32 poll this season. San Francisco received seven first-place votes and 379 points to edge out the New Orleans Saints, who had the other five first-place votes and 374 points in balloting Tuesday by media members who regularly cover the NFL.
