Outside linebacker T.J. Watt and free safety Minkah Fitzpatrick were named first-team All-Pro on Jan. 8 by the Associated Press, and today they received more honors.
Pro Football Writers of America announced both Watt and Fitzpatrick to their 2020 All-NFL and All-AFC teams.
Watt was named All-NFL and All-AFC for the second consecutive year by PFWA. Watt is the odds-on favorite to win Defensive Player of the Year after finishing the season leading the league in sacks (15), tackles for a loss (23) and quarterback hits (41). Watt also has 53 total tackles, 43 of those being solos, two forced fumbles, seven passes defended and one interception. Watt was named team MVP for his outstanding 2020 season.
Fitzpatrick was also named All-NFL and All-AFC in back-to-back seasons by PFWA. Fitzpatrick finished the season with a team-high 74 total tackles, 60 of those being solos, 11 passes defended, one tackle for a loss, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and four interceptions, with one of them going for a pick-six.
