Alabama Makes Pro Bowl History
Alabama football makes history again in the pros as the school has 12 former players who were selected to the 2023 Pro Bowl, the most ever in a single season by one school in NFL history.
Leading the group is CJ Mosley, who now has been selected to five Pro Bowls, followed by Derrick Henry, Marlon Humphrey, and Minkah Fitzpatrick, who each have three selections, then Josh Jacobs, Jonathan Allen, and Trevon Diggs, who all have two selections, and finally Daron Payne, Jalen Hurts, Quinnen Williams, Patrick Surtain, and Landon Dickerson, who each received their first selection this year.
Of the 12 players selected, two of them won't be participating in the competition as Hurts and Dickerson of the Philadelphia Eagles have to prepare for Super Bowl LVII against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Pro Bowl will look different this year than it has in previous years as it is now three 7v7 AFC vs NFC flag football games instead of just one regular football game. The skills competition is still on the Thursday before the Pro Bowl like it usually is, with the games being dodgeball, lightning round, the longest drive, precision passing, and the best catch (first round). Sunday will also have games, with them being the best catch (finale), gridiron gauntlet, kick tac toe, and move the chains. The skills competition will have cumulative scoring, with the winning team in the competitions getting three points per win, which will be added to the points of the first two flag football games (six points max per game) ahead of the decisive third game.
The 2023 Skills Competition and Pro Bowl Games will take place on Thursday, Feb. 2, at 7 p.m. CT and Sunday, Feb. 5, at 2 p.m. CT at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will be aired on ESPN and ABC.
