The Pittsburgh Steelers lead all teams with a league-best eight players selected for the 2018 Pro Bowl, the NFL announced on Tuesday.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, receiver Antonio Brown, running back Le’Veon Bell – known as the “Killer B’s” – headline the group. With offensive linemen Alejandro Villanueva, David DeCastro and Maurkice Pouncey also representing the team’s offensive players selected to play in the annual all-star game.
Kicker Chris Boswell and linebacker Ryan Shazier (who suffered a season-ending spinal injury earlier this month) round out the Steelers representation.
The New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles tied for tops in the NFC with six picks apiece, led by quarterbacks Carson Wentz, who will miss the game due to a season-ending knee injury, and Drew Brees.
Twenty-four of the 86 Pro Bowl selections are newcomers. That includes two of the three Rams specialists chosen: kicker Greg Zuerlein and return specialist Pharoh Cooper. Rams punter Johnny Hekker is a repeat Pro Bowler.
The only rookies who made the cut are Chiefs Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt, Cardinals special teamer Budda Baker and Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore and running back Alvin Kamara.
Five teams have no representatives: the Jets, Browns, Colts, Bears and Packers.
The game will feature the traditional AFC versus NFC matchup, which returned last season, and feature the best NFL’s players, as determined by a consensus of votes by fans, players and coaches.
The Pro Bowl will be played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, on Jan. 28, 2018 and will be televised live at 3 p.m. ET on ESPN.
