NFL Pro Bowl 2023 Preview

The Pro Bowl will be a flag football event this year, and it’ll be a multi-faceted one. The week leading up to the game, there are five skills challenges followed by three skills competitions with the AFC and NFC competing. The five skills challenges began on Thursday and included: Epic Pro Bowl Dodgeball, Lightning Round, Longest Drive, Precision Passing, and the first round of Best Catch.

Sunday, the second round of the games will continue. Those games will be: Gridiron Gauntlet, the Best Catch competition, Move The Chains and Kick Tac Toe.

The flag football games will each consist of seven-on-seven matchups featuring skill players with a center available for team. The field has been shortened from 100 to 50 yards with 10-yard end zones. The games will be 20 minute long (two 10-minute halves), and the play clock will go up to 25 seconds.

Touchdowns will still be worth six points, and teams will have a choice after scoring one: They can either do a one-point conversion from the 3-yard line or a two-point conversion from the 10-yard line.

Quarterbacks for the AFC squad will all be replacements, as top vote-getters Patrick Mahomes (Super Bowl), Josh Allen (injury) and Joe Burrow (injury) won’t play. Derek Carr of the Las Vegas Raiders, Trevor Lawrence of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens backup Tyler Huntley will replace them.

On the NFC side, top vote-getting QB Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles will be playing in the Super Bowl, so the squad will be led by Geno Smith of the Seattle Seahawks, Kirk Cousins of the Minnesota Vikings and Jared Goff of the Detroit Lions Goff will replace Hurts).

When all was said and done won after the first round of games Thursday, the AFC dominated, winning three of the first four. Thus, the AFC will enter Sunday’s games with a 9-3 lead. Carr led the way in the precision passing event, with his 31 points leading the AFC to a 71-55 win. The highlight and points for the NFC came courtesy of New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley, who dominated the dodgeball competition.

The Pro Bowl coaches for 2023 will be Eli Manning and Peyton Manning, with Eli leading the NFC and Peyton leading the AFC. Actor and comedian Pete Davidson (NFC) and legendary rapper Snoop Dogg (AFC) will be team captains.
