Cardinals do not have a single player on All-NFL, All-NFC teams


The PFWA (Pro Football Writers of America) released their All-NFL and All-Conference teams at the beginning of the week. Most of the names are not surprising.

However, not a single player from the Arizona Cardinals made the team. None were on the All-NFL team and none were included on the All-NFC team.

To be fair, the Cardinals were terrible for most of the year. Kyler Murray had a down year. DeAndre Hopkins missed half the season amid suspension and injuries.

Two players who had outstanding seasons were defensive lineman JJ Watt and safety Buddah Baker.

Baker might have been a snub, but the two safeties picked by writers across the country for the NFC were CJ Gardner-Johnson of the Philadelphia Eagles and Talanoa Hufanga of the San Francisco 49ers.

Watt, listed as a defensive end by the Cardinals, could not make it past San Francisco’s Nick Bosa, who led the NFL in sacks, and Carolina’s Brian Burns, who had 12.5 sacks and made the Pro Bowl.

Watt had 12.5 sacks but was not selected for the Pro Bowl.

Bosa and Hufanga made the All-NFL team but the other two at both positions were from the AFC.
