The AFC North champion Ravens landed three players on the 2018 All-Star teams selected by the Pro Football Writers Association of America (PFWAA).

Justin Tucker was named All-NFL and All-AFC, while inside linebacker C.J. Mosley and right guard Marshal Yanda were named All-AFC.

It was another stellar season for Tucker, who made 35 of 39 field goal attempts and scored a franchise-record 141 points for the third-consecutive year. Two of Tucker’s missed field goals this season were blocked, and the other two misses were from 53 yards and 65 yards, respectively.

He is the most accurate kicker in NFL history, making 237 of 263 attempts (90.1%) over his seven-year career. Since entering the NFL in 2012, Tucker has made more field goals than any other kicker. After being snubbed as a Pro Bowl selection, Tucker was also named as a first-team All-Pro by The Associated Press.

Mosley made the Pro Bowl for the fourth time in five seasons, leading the Ravens in tackles with 105. An every-down linebacker who often calls the defensive signals, Mosley has been one of the team’s most consistent players since his rookie season, missing just three games during his career. His game-clinching interception during Baltimore’s Week 17 victory over the Cleveland Browns was one of the season’s most memorable plays, securing the Ravens’ division title. 

Yanda is a seven-time Pro Bowler who reestablished himself as one of the league’s top offensive linemen after he played just two games in 2017 due to a season-ending ankle injury. Baltimore had the NFL’s top rushing attack from Week 11 through the end of the season, and Yanda was the main cog in the offensive line. During the final 15 weeks of the season, Yanda missed just one offensive snap, putting together another impressive season at age 34.

Meanwhile, the Ravens did not land a single player on the PFWA all-rookie team, despite outstanding seasons from quarterback Lamar Jackson, right tackle Orlando Brown Jr., tight end Mark Andrews and running back Gus Edwards. Offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor made the team last year.
