The Indianapolis Colts led the NFL with seven selections for the Pro Bowl as the league announced this year’s teams.
The Colts had three players selected on offense (running back Jonathan Taylor, center Ryan Kelly, guard Quenton Nelson), three on defense (tackle DeForest Buckner, linebacker Darius Leonard, cornerback Kenny Moore II) and one on special teams (long snapper Luke Rhodes).
The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers were next with six selections each. Each team will be represented by its quarterback, Patrick Mahomes for the Chiefs and Justin Herbert for the Chargers. The other AFC quarterback is Lamar Jackson of the Baltimore Ravens. Herbert is the starter.
The Dallas Cowboys, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Francisco 49ers had the most players selected among NFC teams with five apiece. The NFC quarterbacks are starter Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady and Kyler Murray of the Arizona Cardinals. It’s Brady’s 15th Pro Bowl selection and the 10th for Rodgers.
This season’s game will be played on Feb. 6 in Las Vegas for the first time. Rosters are determined by a vote of the fans, players and coaches.
Thirty-one players were selected to their first Pro Bowl, including four rookies: Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase, Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts, Chargers offensive tackle Rashawn Slater and Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons.
Six teams had no players selected: the Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Giants and New York Jets.
