Two Texans on NBC's midseason All-Pro team

Rotoworld contributor Evan Silva posted his midseason All-Pro team on Monday in a piece for NBCSports.com.

Two Texans made the list: wide receiver Andre Johnson, who leads the league with 697 receiving yards, and rookie linebacker Brian Cushing, who leads all rookies and ranks fifth in the NFL with 66 tackles.

Of Johnson, Silva writes: "The NFL's leading receiver is averaging a career-high 15.8 yards per reception and means more to his team than any wideout in the league. Johnson makes everyone around him better."

And of Cushing: "The lone rookie midseason All-Pro, Cushing has made an immediate impact for a defense that's been one of the league's hardest to run against over the last month. He leads the Texans in tackles and provides a physical presence on the strong side."

Matt Schaub, who leads the league in passing yards is tied for the lead in touchdowns, receives mention along with Drew Brees and Tom Brady as a runner-up to Peyton Manning for All-Pro quarterback honors.
