The NFL Pro Bowl teams have been announced and the Texans landed three players on the AFC squad. Not bad for a 5-10 team. No big surprises among any of the three.

The Texans best player, receiver Andre Johnson, heads to the Pro Bowl for the fifth time. Johnson is near the top of the receiving rankings, despite playing most of the season with a bad ankle.

Also making the team is running back Arian Foster, the league's leading rusher with more 1,400 yards. He's headed to the Pro Bowl for the first time.

And in fitting tribute, Foster's blocking back, Vonta Leach, is headed to the beach. The Texans fullback was voted into the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career.
