Aaron Rodgers, Josh Sitton Named First-Team All-NFL by PFWA

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and guard Josh Sitton were named first-team All-NFL by the Pro Football Writers of America on Monday.

Rodgers and Sitton were the only Packers players named to the All-NFL team. The Dallas Cowboys—the team the Packers beat in the divisional round of the playoffs on Sunday—had the most representatives with four players: wide receiver Dez Bryant, center Travis Frederick, running back DeMarco Murray and tackle Tyron Smith.

In addition to Rodgers and Sitton, wide receiver Jordy Nelson was named first-team All-NFC, the only other Packers honoree.

4 Badgers on the 2 teams. Frederick, Watt, Levy and Thomas. That's pretty good representation for UW both on and off the field. Congratulations to each of them!
