Ahh, the infamous Pro Bowl where the NFL’s elite come to showcase their skills in a game no one tries in. That is why the NFL has featured skill competitions such as a hands contest and even dodgeball to the weekend to draw a better audience. I will say it is nice to see the players having fun and goofing around, but it doesn’t make for an exhilarating game. This year will be different; the NFL has been trying to find more and more ways to increase the popularity of their version of an all-star game. I think it’s up to the players to fix it and from everything, I’ve gathered this year’s players want to go out and compete which should make this quite the spectacle.
The NFC is loaded with talent and lucky for (5) Eagles players they can’t participate in the Pro Bowl because they’re gearing up for a chance at the ultimate prize. The NFC starting lineups will feature players such as Russell Wilson, Alvin Kamara, Adam Thielen, Dion Jones, Marshon Lattimore, Patrick Peterson, Landon Collins and Earl Thomas.
The AFC is missing (4) Patriots players but is still stacked to the brim with talent. The AFC rosters feature just as much if not more talent than the NFC with guys like Jalen Ramsey, Von Miller, Terrel Suggs, AJ Green, Antonio Brown, Kareem Hunt and Philip Rivers.
This game is going to have a little bit of everything! The leading vote-getter was Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell followed by Tom Brady, teammate Antonio Brown, and Carson Wentz. The Steelers also lead all teams with 8 Pro Bowl selections! The Eagles and the Saints both had four players selected to lead the NFC. The Bears, Jets, and Browns will not have any players in the Pro Bowl. This will actually mark the 3rd consecutive season that Bears haven’t had representation in the Pro Bowl.
