With team success comes individual accolades, and that continues to be the case for the 11-5 Eagles. Last week, it was announced that six Eagles were named to the Pro Bowl and this week four players were named to the Associated Press All-Pro Teams.

The AP All-Pro Teams are selected by a national panel of 50 sportswriters and broadcasters, awarding players' strong play with one of the highest individual honors in the NFL.

Center Jason Kelce was named first-team All-Pro for the sixth time in his 13-year career. Kelce tied Chuck Bednarik and Reggie White for most first-team All-Pro selections in franchise history.

Wide receiver A.J. Brown, kicker Jake Elliott, and tackle Lane Johnson were named second-team All-Pros. Johnson was named to an All-Pro team for the fourth time, this being his second selection to the second team; Brown was named to his second All-Pro team, having been selected to the second team last season as well. After a career year, Elliott was named an All-Pro for the first time in his career.
