Four Chiefs Named to All-AFC Team by Pro Football Writers

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Right tackle Mitchell Schwartz was one of four Chiefs players named to the All-AFC team unveiled Monday by the Pro Football Writers of America.

Schwartz earned this third-straight All-AFC team honor. He joined fellow repeat recipients in tight end Travis Kelce and defensive tackle Chris Jones, each of whom made the team a year ago.

Rookie Mecole Hardman also earned a spot on the team as a kick returner. No Chiefs player made the association's All-NFL team.

Safety Tyrann Mathieu, who earned second-team Associated Press All-Pro honors, and Pro Bowl defensive end Frank Clark did not make the team. Safeties Jamal Adams of the New York Jets and Minkah Fitzpatrick of the Pittsburgh Steelers beat out Mathieu. Los Angeles Chargers' Joey Bosa and Jacksonville's Calais Campbell won the voting at defensive end.

The Tennessee Titans, whom the Chiefs face in Sunday's AFC Championship game, placed two players on the All-NFL team with running back Derrick Henry and punter Brett Kern.

The Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints placed a league-best four players on the All-NFL team, which was led by Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.

The PFWA releases its All-Rookie team on Tuesday, for which Hardman and safety Juan Thornhill appear likely candidates.
