Lane Johnson, Jason Kelce earn All-Pro honors

The Associated Press announced its All-Pro Team on Friday and two Eagles were honored – tackle Lane Johnson and center Jason Kelce.

It should come as no surprise that two offensive linemen were chosen as the Eagles led the league with a franchise-record 2,715 rushing yards and tied another franchise mark with 25 rushing touchdowns.

Johnson was a second-team All-Pro selection. It's his first All-Pro accolade since he was a first-team choice in the Super Bowl season of 2017. Johnson was flat-out dominant at the right tackle position, allowing just one QB hit all season (no sacks) in 416 pass-blocking snaps. For good measure, Johnson became the first Eagles offensive lineman to catch a touchdown pass since 2010 in the win over the Giants. Johnson returned from a three-game absence in Week 7 and the Eagles ranked fourth in scoring from Week 8 through the rest of the season. In his nine NFL seasons, the Eagles have a .597 win percentage in games Johnson starts, including playoffs.

Kelce was named a first-team All-Pro for the fourth time in his career. This honor comes off the heels of his fifth Pro Bowl selection, the most by a center in franchise history. Pro Football Focus' No. 1 center in the NFC and top run-blocking center in the NFC, Kelce provided the leadership to aid Jalen Hurts in his first full season as the starting quarterback as well as the athleticism to spring explosive runs at the second and third levels of the defense. The Eagles had 77 explosive runs this season, second most in the league. Always reliable, Kelce has started 129 consecutive games (including playoffs), the longest active streak among NFL centers.
