The NFL’s postseason all-star event will look very different this year, with the traditional Pro Bowl replaced by the Pro Bowl Games.
Gone is the half-hearted tackle football game pitting AFC versus NFC;
fans will be treated instead to a week’s worth of skills competitions and a flag football exhibition featuring
the highest vote-getters from across the two conferences.
But a nomination is still a badge of honor for players as a way to differentiate the best of the best and measure elite play in a given season.
Voting has been open for almost two weeks, and the NFL has leaked the current standings with nearly three weeks still to go.
The Cowboys are well-represented, with two players leading their positions in the fan vote.
Five others are reportedly within striking distance.
Fans can cast a vote as often as they’d like at www.nfl.com/pro-bowl-games/vote,
via the official website of any team, or directly on Twitter from Dec. 1 through Dec. 15 using a special hashtag.
