Greetings, Raider Nation! There is one more game before the Super Bowl next week, and it’s the annual Pro Bowl between the AFC and NFC all-stars held this year in Orlando at Camping World Stadium aka the Citrus Bowl, where today it is raining heavily.
The AFC is bringing the heat on offense this season, with Patrick Mahomes starting at QB and Andrew Luck and Deshaun Watson seeing time as well. At receiver they have DeAndre Hopkins, Tyreek Hill, and Antonio Brown, who for now will represent the Steelers. At running back the AFC boasts James Conner, Melvin Gordon and Lamar Miller. Only one Raider made the Pro Bowl this year, and it’s Jared Cook, one of two AFC tight ends alongside Eric Ebron.
On the NFC side, they have under center Aaron Rodgers, Mitchell Trubisky and Russell Wilson. Three elite running backs represent the AFC as Saquon Barkley, Zeke Elliott and Alvin Kamara will man the backfield and we will see Julio Jones, Amari Cooper, Adam Thielen, Davante Adams and Mike Evans out wide.
The game can be seen on ABC and ESPN at Noon Pacific. Enjoy the game!
