Four Chiefs Named to the PFWA "All-NFL Team"

Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, Chris Jones and Tommy Townsend each earned a spot on the team

The Kansas City Chiefs were once again well-represented on another "All-NFL" team this week, as four members of the Chiefs were named to the Professional Football Writers of America "All-NFL Team."

The Chiefs' four selections – which matched the most of any team – were quarterback Patrick Mahomes, tight end Travis Kelce, defensive tackle Chris Jones and punter Tommy Townsend.

Mahomes was named to the team after leading the NFL in passing yards (5,250) and passing touchdowns (41) in 2022. He also set an NFL single-season record for total offensive yards gained (5,614).

His favorite target all season long was Kelce, who hauled in a career-high 110 receptions for 1,338 yards and 12 touchdowns. It marked Kelce's seventh-straight 1,000-yard campaign.

On the other side of the ball, Jones matched a career-best with 15.5 sacks this season. His 77 total pressures ranked fifth in the NFL and led all interior defensive linemen.

Lastly – but certainly not least – Townsend turned in a tremendous season in 2022. He led the league in net average distance (45.6 yards) and ranked second in total distance (50.4 yards) while setting franchise single-season records in both categories.

Additionally, Kansas City led all teams with six selections to the "All-AFC Team." Center Creed Humphrey and left guard Joe Thuney joined Mahomes, Kelce, Jones and Townsend, leading the next closest team by two players.

All six selections played a pivotal role in the Chiefs' success this season, and with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line, they'll each look to keep things rolling on Sunday in a bout against the Cincinnati Bengals.
