Tied only with the Dallas Cowboys, the Chiefs had a league-high four players named to the team


The Pro Football Writers of America announced its All-NFL team Monday afternoon, and the Kansas City Chiefs had a league-high four players named to the team. The Dallas Cowboys were the only other team with as many players named as the Chiefs.

Travis Kelce was named the league's top tight end, Marcus Peters was named the league's top cornerback, Eric Berry was name the league's top safety and rookie Tyreek Hill was named the league's top punt returner.

Kelce had 85 receptions for 1,125 yards receiving and four touchdowns on the season, marking the first time the tight end finished with more than 1,000 yards in his four-year career.

Peters finished the season with 45 tackles (35 solo), 20 passes defensed, one forced fumble, three fumble recoveries and six interceptions. Peters' six interceptions placed him in a three-way tie for second most in the league.

Berry finished the season with 77 tackles (62 solo), nine passes defensed, one forced fumble and four interceptions—two for touchdowns—and of course, the first "pick-two" in NFL history, which clinched the Chiefs' 29-28 win against the Falcons in Atlanta.

With 39 punt returns, Hill finished with 592 yards and two touchdowns. His 15.2 yards per punt return led the league.

All four players were also named to both the AP All-Pro first team and the upcoming Pro Bowl, set to take place Sunday, January 29.
