Eight Philadelphia Eagles players have been selected for the Pro Bowl, including quarterback Jalen Hurts. Philadelphia sits atop the NFL with a 13-1 record this season.
The NFL announced the National Association (NFC) and American Association (AFC) rosters on Wednesday. Players will take part in a week-long series of skills competitions culminating in a flag football match on Sunday, February 5, at Allegiant Stadium from Vegas.
Recall that the NFL eliminated the formula with contact from the Pro Bowl last September.
NFC starting quarterback Jalen Hurts was selected alongside Eagles teammates AJ Brown, Miles Sanders, Lane Johnson, Jason Kelce, Landon Dickerson, Haason Reddick and Darius Slay in the Pro Bowl.
Patrick Mahomes would be the starting quarterback for the AFC. He would be supported by Josh Allen and Joe Burrow. For his part, Hurts will have Kirk Cousins and Geno Smith as replacements.
Saquon Barkley (NFC) and Nick Chubb (AFC) would be the starters at running back.
AJ Brown and Justin Jefferson are the NFC’s starting receivers, while Tyreek Hill and Stefon Diggs will fill the same roles in the AFC.
George Kittle (NFC) and Travis Kelce (AFC) will start at tight end in the Pro Bowl.
