Josh Gordon and Joe Thomas were named to the first-team NFL All-Pro squad, and three of their teammates made the second team, the Associated Press announced on Friday.

Gordon led all NFL receivers with 1,646 receiving yards despite being suspended for the first two games. Thomas continued his run as one of the league's top left tackles, as he earned a Pro Bowl spot for the seventh time.

Center Alex Mack, cornerback Joe Haden and safety T.J. Ward were named to the All-Pro second team.

 

NFL Wild Card Predictions

Kansas City at Indianapolis 

Andrew Luck gained valuable playoff experience last year, and he reduced his interceptions from 18 to 9 this season. The Chiefs have cooled off considerably since their 9-0 start. 

Prediction: Colts 28, Chiefs 17

 

San Diego vs. Cincinnati

The Bengals are 8-0 at home, but the Chargers have been a tough out on the road. They knocked off the Broncos in Denver. The Bengals' defense has been strong and should force Philip Rivers into a costly mistake.

Prediction: Bengals 24, Chargers 20

 

New Orleans vs. Philadelphia

This is the toughest game to pick. Drew Brees had another amazing year, but Nick Foles has been lights-out for the Eagles, throwing 27 touchdowns and an amazing total of only two interceptions.

The Saints have never won a playoff game on the road, but it's hard to pick playoff newbie Foles over Brees and his Super Bowl ring. 

Prediction: Saints 31, Eagles 28

 

San Francisco vs. Green Bay

This could be the most brutally cold game in the history of the NFL. Only a stellar rushing performance from 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick can save the 49ers, as this game's insanely cold temperatures could give Aaron Rodgers and the Pack an insurmountable advantage.

Prediction: Packers 24, 49ers 21
