The Kansas City Chiefs placed a league-high three players - running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Berry and punt returner Dexter McCluster - on the 2013 All-NFL team, chosen in voting conducted by the Professional Football Writers of America.

Only five players from the PFWA's 2012 All-NFL team were repeats: Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, and two players from the Seattle Seahawks, cornerback Richard Sherman and safety Earl Thomas. Johnson is a member of the PFWA's All-NFL team for the third consecutive season, the longest current streak.

Manning was voted All-NFL by the PFWA for the seventh time in his career and Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas earned his fourth career All-NFL selection. A total of 17 players, including Minnesota Vikings rookie kickoff returner Cordarrelle Patterson, were first-time All-NFL honorees.

Nine clubs - the Arizona Cardinals, Carolina Panthers, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Rams, Seattle and Tampa Bay Buccaneers - each had two players on the All-NFL team. In all, 16 clubs are represented among the 27 players honored.

The PFWA also announced the All-AFC and All-NFC teams. The Chiefs led all AFC teams with seven All-AFC selections, while the Browns had five All-AFC honorees. The Seahawks led all NFC clubs with four All-NFC selections, while the Panthers, Eagles and San Francisco 49ers each had three All-NFC honorees.
