Another day, another honor for J.J. Watt.

The AP Defensive Player of the Year, who is already a Pro Bowler and an All-Pro from 2013, was given another honor by the Pro Football Writers Association on Monday.

Watt was named to the PFWA's All-NFL team. He's the only Texan to make the All-NFL or All-AFC team.

Watt's numbers were down from his incredible 2012 season but some might argue he was even better in 2013. At least, ProFootballFocus graded him higher.
