Andy Reid and Jason Garrett weren’t able to lead the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys to playoff victories this season, but they will still have a chance to record a postseason victory of sorts on Pro Bowl Sunday.
Kansas City’s Reid and Dallas’ Garrett will serve as the head coaches for the AFC and NFC teams respectively. They have brought their coaching staffs with them to Orlando, Florida, according to NFL.com’s Jeremy Bergman.
2017 is the fifth time that Reid has been the head coach of a Pro Bowl team, but his first at the helm of the AFC squad. His first four trips (2001, 2002, 2003 and 2008) were all made as the head coach of the NFC’s Philadelphia Eagles. Reid’s teams have gone 2-2 in his previous four trips.
This is Garrett’s first time as a head coach for a Pro Bowl team. The NFC has won two of the last three AFC vs. NFC format games (2010-2012), averaging 52.6 points per game in those contests.
The 2017 game is scheduled to be played at 8 p.m. EST and can be seen on ESPN.
