DETROIT (CBS DETROIT) – As the Detroit Lions sit at home (or enjoy fabulous vacations) while the playoffs continue, the postseason awards keep rolling in for wide receiver Calvin Johnson and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
The latest honors come from the Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA). With Johnson and Suh, Detroit was one of nine teams to have two players on PFWA’s team. One, the Kansas City Chiefs, had three players named to the list.
An easy favorite in the NFC North before losing six of their last seven games, the Lions accounted for two of the three players in their division that made the All-NFL team. They got Johnson and Suh on the list, and kick returner Cordarrelle Patterson from the Minnesota Vikings also made the cut, but no one was included from the Green Bay Packers or Chicago Bears, who ended up playing for the NFC North title in the final week of the season.
PFWA has named Johnson to the All-NFL each of the last three seasons, the longest current streak of any player.
