Adrian Peterson leads AP All-Pro Team!

Minnesota Vikings’ RB Adrian Peterson came only nine yards short of eclipsing Eric Dickerson’s 30 year old single-season rushing record! He topped the list of the Associated Press 2012 All-Pro team that was announced on Saturday! Houston Texans’ defensive end J.J. Watts was another clear choice; leading the league with 20 1/2 sacks! Denver Broncos’ Peyton Manning was a top pick for QB after going 8-0 to finish the season, and finishing with the AFC best record of 13-3! TE Tony Gonzalez made it for the sixth time, WR Brandon Marshall and Jerry Rice record breaker, WR Calvin Johnson AKA Mega-Tron made the cut as well! The AFC only had 10 people make the team, while the NFC had 17; six Niners and four Seahawks! Besides Watts, 17 new faces made the squad! The Giants and the Jets have no selections for the squad! These players were selected by 50 members of a nationwide panel of media members who cover the league. Check out the full list below!
