Two quarterbacks battling for MVP honors were named to the 2021 Associated Press All-Pro Team. Aaron Rodgers was named First-Team All-Pro for the fourth time and second year in a row. Tom Brady was a second team selection. His last All-Pro honor came in 2017 during his MVP season.

The All-Pro lists, which were voted on by a 50-member national media panel, include five players who were selected unanimously: Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp, Packers wide receiver Davante Adams, Colts running back Jonathan Taylor, Steelers pass-rusher TJ Watt and Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald. Along with Rodgers and Brady, each of these players is a contender for the league’s MVP, which will be revealed the night before Super Bowl LVI.

Here’s a full look at the 2021 All-Pro First and Second Teams, as well as every other player who received votes.
