NEW YORK -- Vikings 2,000-yard man Adrian Peterson and Texans pass-swatting end J.J. Watt are unanimous choices for The Associated Press All-Pro team announced Saturday.

Peterson, who came within 9 yards of breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record, and Watt, who led the NFL with 20 1-2 sacks, were selected by all 50 members of a nationwide panel of media members who cover the league.
