Player from the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles who received Pro Bowl nods will be sitting out of this weekend's game to ensure they are healthy for their February 4 matchup at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
Alexander definitely earned a Pro Bowl selection without a doubt after managing to record 97 tackles and finishing second on the team in total tackles. Last year's contest featured Dak Prescott, Dez Bryant, Ezekiel Elliott, Tyron Smith, Zach Martin, Sean Lee and Frederick.
Oakland's Derek Carr completed 11 of 15 passes for 115 yards and connected with Walker on a skinny post for the winning score.
No matter how much fans claim to hate the game, it's still one of the favorite traditions in American sports and we can count on them being around for a long time.
Fournette shouldn't have a hard path to the Pro Bowl in future years.
I'm sure not many of you watched the game, as the number of clicks we've received since the Philadelphia Disaster being about a quarter of what they were the week after the Minneapolis Miracle and really, I don't blame you. Adam Thielen scored the first points of the game on an 8-yard strike from none other than Drew Brees (at the end of a 75-yard drive). Thielen and Smith provided two early highlights for the NFC.
Jones predicted Peterson would get the MVP award, but that did not happen.
But the most-fun interception of the afternoon belonged to the AFC.
Peterson did get burned at least once, though, when Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton won a jump ball deep downfield against the Cardinals corner. Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell, Rosie Nix, David DeCastro, Maurkice Pouncey and Alejandro Villanueva will play on the offensive side, while Cameron Heyward will represent the black and yellow on defense.
