It's hard to generate much excitement for the Pro Bowl when everyone else is so focused on the game played the following Sunday. Players just want to make sure they aren't hurt, which is exactly why this game is probably nearing extinction. However, it's still going on this year, and it's still going to be on TV. Proof:
When: Sunday, January 27, 7 PM EST
Where: Honolulu, Hawaii, Aloha Stadium
Who: You can find the full roster here on the official NFL website.
Some notable additions since the initial announcement include Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson, Doug Martin, Vincent Jackson, Ndamukong Suh, C.J. Spiller, Owen Daniels, and Joshua Cribbs. Another addition to the NFC roster is Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway, a replacement for either Patrick Willis or NaVorro Bowman. Take your pick, both are going to the Super Bowl, and were replaced by Greenway and Daryl Washington of the Arizona Cardinals.
Joining Greenway from Minnesota will be Adrian Peterson, Jared Allen, Jerome Felton, and Blair Walsh.
The Vikings are well-represented this year and Peterson will likely be the centerpiece of an offense that's going to probably score something like 60 points. Of course, Peterson will only play in limited duty but at least Walsh is going to be kicking a lot! Make sure to tune in for one last chance to see some Vikes play.
