Despite the team missing the playoffs in 2021, members of the Cleveland Browns are continuing to be honored for their excellent individual seasons.

On Monday, the Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA) named Myles Garrett, Joel Bitonio, and Nick Chubb to its All-NFL Team. It's the second year in a row that both Garrett and Bitonio have received the honor, while Chubb is making his first appearance on the PFWA's All-NFL Team.

Garrett set a single-season franchise record with 16 sacks for the Browns in 2021. He was named first-team All-Pro for the second straight season, while earning his third career Pro Bowl selection.

Like Garrett, Bitonio was also honored as a first team All-Pro by the Associated Press in 2021. Bitonio previously had earned three second-team All-Pro honors from 2018-2020. Cleveland's longest-tenured player, Bitonio started in all 17 of the Browns' games this season and has been selected to the Pro Bowl in four consecutive seasons (2018-21).

In what was his fourth season with the Browns, Chubb earned his third consecutive Pro Bowl selection, finishing second in the NFL in rushing with 1,259 yards, in addition to eight rushing touchdowns.

The Browns were one of five teams to have a league-high three players make the list.
