The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have received another set of regular season honors. The Pro Football Writers of America named Doug Martin to their All-NFL and All-NFC teams, while Lavonte David earned All-NFC honors from the same organization.

This is Martin's third honor this year, after being named to first-team AP All-Pro and earning a Pro Bowl berth. His 1,402 rushing yards ranked second in the league, and his 4.9 yards per carry were the highest for any back with at least 150 attempts. He added six touchdowns on the ground, as well as 33 catches for 271 yards and another touchdown.

Lavonte David did not receive any honors after an up-and-down season. David was playing relatively poorly for most of the first half of the season, but turned it on late and still managed to put up some impressive statistics, including 13 passes defensed (top among NFL linebackers), three interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and three sacks.
