Aaron Rodgers, J.J. Watt named to 2014 PFWA All-NFL team

The Cowboys led the way with four players on the first-team unit.

The Professional Football Writers of America announced their 2014 All-NFL team on Monday. To no one's surprise, Aaron Rodgers is quarterbacking the group.

Rodgers, who will likely be named MVP after throwing 38 touchdowns to just five interceptions, leads an offensive group that includes Le'Veon Bell, DeMarco Muray, Dez Bryant and Rob Gronkowski.

In addition to Murray and Bryant, the Cowboys added center Travis Frederick and tackle Tyron Smith, leading the league with four players on the list. Dallas guard Zach Martin was also named to the All-NFC team.

J.J. Watt leads the defense after piling up 20.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, an interception and four touchdowns, three of them on the offensive side of the ball. A dominant Bills defensive line that led the league in sacks placed two players on the All-NFL team (Mario Williams and Marcell Dareus) and a third on the All-AFC team (Kyle Williams).

Here are the complete lists of the All-NFL, All-AFC and All-NFC rosters.
