The Pro Football Writers of America released their All-NFL and All-Conference teams Monday and the Cleveland Browns saw defensive end Myles Garrett and left guard Joel Bitonio make the All-NFL team. Running back Nick Chubb and right tackle Jack Conklin made the All-AFC team.

The Browns season may have officially ended on Sunday with a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the divisional round of the playoffs, but the honors keep rolling in for the team and individual players.

Garrett and Conklin had been previously named First Team All-Pro by the Associated Press while Bitonio was named to the second team. Chubb was not named All-Pro, but he is honored along with Derrick Henry as the best running backs in the AFC.

Chubb ran for 1,067 and 12 touchdowns on just 190 carries. He only played in 13 games due to an MCL injury he suffered at the beginning of the game against the Dallas Cowboys. Chubb also caught 16 passes for another 150 yards.

Chubb had 12 carries for at least 20 yards on the season, which was tied for the team lead in explosive plays on the team with Rashard Higgins.

In the wildcard game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Chubb recorded 145 total yards on 22 touches including a screen pass that went for a 40-yard touchdown.

The individual awards to the offensive linemen are a testament to what the team was able to accomplish all season. The most consistent element of the team, they allowed the Browns to find success running the ball as well as protecting Baker Mayfield, so that he could pass.
