Atlanta (8-0) topped Dallas 19-13 over the weekend to remain the league's only undefeated team.
The Falcons receive 11 first-place votes and 382 points from The Associated Press' 12-person panel of media members who regularly cover the league.
Houston totals 363 points and Chicago has 362, with San Francisco receiving the other first-place vote and 348 points.
Indianapolis improves four places to 12th after starting the season 32nd and last. Kansas City is 32nd this week.
