2013 NFL Pro Bowl roster: Vikings well represented at Pro Bowl

After a career year, Adrian Peterson leads the Vikings into the Pro Bowl on Sunday.

USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Vikings and the Seattle Seahawks lead the NFC with the most Pro Bowl selections with six.

The 63rd annual NFL Pro Bowl is Sunday at 7 p.m. ET in Hawaii.

The Vikings and Seahawks would be tied for second, but all nine of the San Francisco 49ers' selections are preparing for next weekend's Super Bowl.

Leading the way for the Vikings is MVP contender Adrian Peterson. Joining the veteran on the team will be fullback Jerome Felton, tight end Kyle Rudolph, defensive end Jared Allen, outside linebacker Chad Greenway and placekicker Blair Walsh.

Peterson had the best season in his six-year career. He rushed for 2,097 yards -- nearly an NFL record -- and 12 touchdowns in 16 games. He averaged 131 yards per game, which was the best mark in the NFL.
