Patrick Peterson, Justin Bethel named to PFWA All-NFL team

Christian Petersen

The two players continue to get recognition.

The NFL already has announced the league's Pro Bowl players and their two All-Pro teams. But the Pro Football Writers of America have voted (myself included) and on Monday announced their All-NFL, All-AFC and All-NFC teams. A pair of Cardinals was recognized.

Cornerback Patrick Peterson and special teams ace Justin Bethel were named to both the All-NFC team, but also the All-NFL team as well.

Arizona was one of nine teams to have two players make the All-NFL team.

On my ballot, I did not have Peterson on my All-NFL team, but I did have him on the all-conference team. I voted for Bethel on both and also cast votes for Karlos Dansby and Calais Campbell for both the conference and league teams.

Here are the teams as announced by the PFWA.
