Texans’ J.J. Watt, DeAndre Hopkins earn PFWA accolades
Houston Chronicle - about 1 year
Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins have been honored again.
Watt was voted to the Pro Football Writers of America All-NFL Team for the fourth consecutive year, the league’s longest current streak.
Watt and Hopkins, who helped lead the Texans to a 9-7 record and AFC South title, were voted to the PFWA All-AFC Team.
In his fifth season, Watt led the NFL with 17 ½ sacks, 29 tackles for loss and 50 hits on the quarterback. He earned Pro Bowl and All-Pro recognition before undergoing surgery on his groin that will keep him from making the trip to Hawaii.
Watt is a leading candidate to be voted NFL Defensive Player of the Year for the third time. He could join Lawrence Taylor as the only three-time winners in history.
Watt was one of nine players to repeat on the All-NFL Team.
In his third season, Hopkins had 111 catches for 1,521 yards and a team-record 11 touchdowns receiving.
Hopkins was voted to the Pro Bowl and the All-Pro second team.
