The New York Jets had two selections on Pro Football Weekly's 2011 All-NFL team: DB Darrelle Revis and KR Joe McKnight. The New York Giants landed defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul on the All-NFL squad (via PFW).
Here's what PFW had to say about the selections.
After they lost Brad Smith in free agency to the Bills, there was some concern surrounding the Jets that they wouldn't have an elite special-teams unit. McKnight quieted those worries in a major way.
Between Weeks 14-17, when the Giants were fighting for a playoff berth, Pierre-Paul had a combined 34 tackles and six sacks, as New York went 3-1. The second-year pro finished the season with 86 tackles (including 23 behind the line of scrimmage) and 16½ sacks.
If there was any doubt, Revis proved once again in 2011 that he is the best cornerback in the league. Opposing quarterbacks rarely threw his way, and when they did, it generally didn't end well for the offense. Revis had four interceptions - including a Week One pick of Tony Romo in the final minute of the fourth quarter to set up a Jets win and a 100-yard pick-six in a Week Six win over the Dolphins.
