​WITH ONE WEEK REMAINING, PHILADELPHIA EAGLES QB CARSON WENTZ LEADS PRO BOWL VOTING BY FANS

– Rosters to be announced Live on NFL Network’s

Pro Bowl Special on Tuesday, December 19 at 8:00 PM ET – 

As fan voting enters its final week, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback CARSON WENTZ, with 562,958 total votes, continues to lead all players in balloting for the 2018 Pro Bowl. 

New England quarterback TOM BRADY (499,727 votes) ranks second overall, while Pittsburgh running back LE’VEON BELL (499,042 votes), Pittsburgh wide receiver ANTONIO BROWN (487,170 votes) and New Orleans quarterback DREW BREES (439,079 votes) round out the top five. 

Fan voting for the 2018 Pro Bowl will continue online and on web-enabled mobile phones at www.NFL.com/probowlvote through Thursday, December 14. In addition: 

  • Fans may vote via Twitter’s Direct Message (DM) Voting Experience, which has never been done for an All-Star game before. Fans may participate via entry cards tweeted from all 32 team accounts or by directly visiting the @NFL profile page at Twitter.com/NFL. The entry cards will initiate a private “Direct Message” and enable fans to select a position group or search for a player or team to begin the voting process.

  • Starting tomorrow, fans can also vote directly on Twitter with the #ProBowlVote hashtag. To cast such a vote, fans should tweet the first and last name of the player, or the player’s official Twitter handle, along with the hashtag: #ProBowlVote. This method is in addition to the online ballot at NFL.com/ProBowlVote and the DM Voting Experience, which will both be available throughout the voting period. 

The 2018 Pro Bowl, which kicks off at a new start time of 3:00 PM ET on Sunday, January 28, will be televised live from Camping World Stadium on ESPN and ESPN Deportes and simulcast on ABC. Players for the game are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 All-Star players who will be selected to the Pro Bowl. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Friday, December 15. 

Pro Bowl rosters will be announced on Tuesday, December 19 live on NFL Network’s Pro Bowl special “NFL Total Access: Pro Bowl Players Revealed” at 8:00 PM ET. The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its All-Star teams. It was also the first professional sports league to offer online all-star voting in 1995. 

​Tickets to the game start at $45 and are on sale now at www.probowl.com. Last year’s sold-out event – the Pro Bowl’s first time in Orlando – featured a capacity crowd of more than 60,000. Fans may visit ProBowl.com for additional information on Pro Bowl Week, which features a variety of free, family-friendly events in Orlando.

The Pro Bowl is an all-inclusive event for fans on gameday. Working with KultureCity, Camping World Stadium’s sensory-inclusive partner, the NFL will offer families who attend the 2018 Pro Bowl support, including sensory accessibility resources and two dedicated sensory rooms located in the stadium on gameday to enable them to enjoy the game with more confidence and comfort.
