Football Season Ending, Pro Bowl then Super Bowl

Giving the football players two weeks to prepare for the Super Bowl is a great idea, and what makes it even better is that they have a great match-up the week before just for fun with the Pro Bowl. Every year the Pro Bowl brings together players from different teams and places them on the same team, which is a great way to get some of the best players to show their talent. It is as if a fantasy league team had come to life. This year, Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin are the two facing each other, as the public votes for which players get drafted to each team.

Here are a few of the players that got drafted to each team:

Team Irvin Team Rice
Player POS Player POS
Russell Wilson QB Derek Carr QB
Jameis Winston QB Eli Manning QB
Teddy Bridgewater QB Tyrod Taylor QB
Allen Robinson WR Amari Cooper WR
Julio Jones WR Odell Beckham Jr. WR
DeAndre Hopkins WR Jarvis Landry WR
A.J. Green WR T.Y. Hilton WR
Richard Sherman CB Marcus Peters CB
Desmond Trufant CB Vontae Davis CB
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie CB Brent Grimes CB
Adam Jones CB Jason Verrett CB

 

Seeing as how the Pro Bowl is mostly an offensive-type game, the players that stand out the most are the quarterbacks, wide receivers, and the corner backs. The game will take place at the Aloha Stadium on Honolulu Hawaii and kick-off will be at 2 p.m. local time. It will be a fun game to watch, so fans shouldn’t take it too seriously, seeing as sportsbooks are not even taking bets on the match. All of this takes place a week before the Super Bowl 50, where the Carolina Panthers face the Denver Broncos.
