Chiefs' Justin Houston also beating out Von Miller in Pro Bowl voting

Pro Football Focus wrote recently that Justin Houston is on pace to have a higher grade than his 2014, despite having fewer sacks. Most folks realize that Houston is a better overall player than the Broncos' Von Miller, and another metric now backs that up: Pro Bowl voting.

Yes, Pro Bowl voting is stupid but it's fun when Justin Houston has more votes than Von Miller. Houston is the better player and having a better season so I'm glad he is starting to get recognized for that. (Can you tell it's Broncos week around here? #TrollTrollTrollYourBoat)

The top five at outside linebacker are Thomas DavisJamie CollinsDeMarcus WareJulius Peppers and Houston. Von Miller is sixth.

Here are some of the other leading vote-getters for the Pro Bowl as of now:

Tight end

Travis Kelce is the fifth leading vote-getter. Ahead of him is Rob Gronkowski, Greg Olsen, Tyler Eifert and Gary Barnridge. The previous high for Barnridge was 242 yards on the year way back in 2009. This year? He has 602 yards at the halfway point. Weird.


How 'bout the rookie, Marcus Peters? He is fifth as well. That he is doing this well in Pro Bowl voting tells me he will likely be a rookie of the year candidate. Todd Gurley may run away with that award at this point but Peters will be in the conversation.

The top four at cornerback are Josh Norman, Darrelle Revis, Aqib Talib and Patrick Peterson.


Eric Berry is fourth in the voting. Like Peters, he could be up for another award, and that is comeback player of the year.

Those ahead of Berry at safety are Charles Woodson, Kam Chancellor and Mike Adams.


Cairo Santos is 10th!
