Houston Texans Offensive Players Make Various All-Pro Teams

The temperatures dipping and the Houston Texans at home watching the playoffs must mean one thing: it's time for associations and writers to hand out awards to honor the NFL's best from the regular season.

While the big awards (read: the Associated Press') haven't been given out, The Sporting News and Pro Football Focus have revealed their All-Pro teams where three Texans (on offense of course) were recognized for their play.

Wide Receiver Andre Johnson was a no-brainer to make both All-Pro teams. Despite missing three games, Johnson caught 86 passes for 1,216 yards and eight touchdowns. The majority of NFL receivers would love to have a full season with those numbers.

Running back Arian Foster, who should (rightfully) earn some votes for the AP's Offensive Player of the Year award, earned a spot on TSN's All-Pro team after leading the NFL in rushing, yards from scrimmage, rushing touchdowns, and touchdowns. Strangely, Foster wasn't voted to PFF's team, but another Texan was.

PFF's second Texan All-Pro was offensive guard Wade Smith, who also earned praise as one of 2010's best off-season pick-ups.

The Texans were the only team with two offensive players on TSN's All-Pro team, voted on by players, coaches, and club executives. Pro Football Focus' team was voted on by their staff - who thought leading the NFL in multiple stats wasn't good enough to make their All-Pro team.
