NEW YORK (AP) -- Vikings 2,000-yard man Adrian Peterson and Texans pass-swatting end J.J. Watt are unanimous choices for The Associated Press All-Pro team announced Saturday.
Peterson, who came within 9 yards of breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record, and Watt, who led the NFL with 20 1-2 sacks, were selected by all 50 members of a nationwide panel of media members who cover the league.
Peterson is a three-time All-Pro, while Watt makes the team for the first time.
Peyton Manning makes his sixth team, the previous five with Indianapolis. He led Denver to the AFC's best record, 13-3.
Tony Gonzalez claims this is his final NFL season, and if so, he's going out in style. The veteran was named as the All-Pro tight end, beating out the Cowboys' Jason Witten by five votes.
