Football’s Best Players Brace for The 2018 NFL Pro Bowl


When: January 28th, 2:50 pm EST

Where: Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida

Channel: ABC

Available Streams: DirecTV Now | Hulu With Live TV | PlayStation Vue | YouTube TV

The NFL’s top players will meet for the 2018 Pro Bowl to determine which conference reigns supreme this year. The rosters are just as star-studded as they’ve been in recent years, with a good amount of players making repeat appearances.

The game takes place on Jan. 28 at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. The game will be broadcast on ABC. Kickoff is set for 2:50 pm EST.

The Offence

The quarterback lineup includes familiar names like Tom Brady, Drew Brees, and Phillip Rivers. Carson Wentz was putting up never before seen numbers before injuring his ACL. He will also get a spot on the roster.


The Saints suffered an embarrassing loss to the Vikings during the Divisional Round of the playoffs, bringing their dreams of a Super Bowl appearance to a crashing end. They did manage to send two running backs to the Pro Bowl though. Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara were both added to the NFC roster.

Houston Texan wide-receiver DeAndre Hopkins managed to lead the league in receiving yards despite the Texans losing their starting quarterback midway through the season.

The Defense

The defensive roster is just as star-studded as the offensive lineup is. Quarterback nightmare Gerald McCoy and Aaron Donald both made the defensive line roster. Linebackers Jadeveon Clowney and Luke Kuechly will give them support at the linebacker positions, while Xavier Rhodes and Jalen Ramsey are two notables defensive backs that will be in the backfield on Sunday.

The Coaches


The AFC will be coached by Pittsburg Steeler head coach Mike Tomlin. Tomlin has been in charge of the Steelers for over a decade, winning a Super Bowl and two conference championships. Tomlin made some questionable calls during the Steelers’ tough loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars during the divisional round, and it’s safe to say all eyes will be on him during the Pro Bowl.

The NFC will be headed by New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton, whose last-minute play calling arguably brought the Saints’ post-season run to an abrupt end. Like Tomlin, Payton has taken his team to a Super Bowl victory once.

“The Pro Bowl is the one days all the best players come together and play a game. There are a lot of big plays involved, so it is a very exciting game to watch”second-year player Bradley Brown explained. “Every year, the best football players in the world go head to head, and it never disappoints. Expect this year to be no different.”
