Just add this one to the growing list of accomplishments. J.J. Watt is an All-Pro again.

The Texans' defensive end, who was the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2013, is an All-Pro for the second straight season.

Watt's numbers weren't as eye-popping this season but he was still the same disruptive force for a team without many bright spots. Watt had 10.5 sacks, seven passes defended, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He is also a Pro Bowler for the second straight season.

Watt, along with the Rams' Robert Quinn, was a first-teamer at defensive end. Watt was the only Texan to make the All-Pro team. The All-Pro team is put together by the Associated Press
