The Green Bay Packers earned a pair of second-team selections on the NFL’s AP All-Pro squads released Saturday, as quarterback Aaron Rodgers and outside linebacker Clay Matthews were honored by media members.
Rodgers helped guide Green Bay to an 11-5 regular-season record and another NFC North division title thanks to virtually pinpoint passing. The reigning NFL MVP passed for 4,295 yards and 39 touchdowns while throwing only eight interceptions. Rodgers also completed 67.2 percent of his passes and had a sterling 108 QB rating.
Matthews, Green Bay’s fourth-year defensive star, produced 13 sacks during the regular season despite being limited to just 12 games played due to injuries. He also had two passes defensed and one forced fumble.
The AP All-Pro teams are selected annually by a national panel of 50 media members. The full teams are listed below.
