Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts received a boost to getting named League MVP by being named the NFC starter for the 2022/23 Pro Bowl games.


Hurts has led the Eagles to a 13-1 record and the front runner to land the No. 1 seed in the upcoming Super Bowl playoffs.


Hurts will not start in the Birds NFC East game Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium in Arlington because of a sprained should he suffered against the Chicago Bears last Sunday.


The Birds have four players making debut as a Pro Bowl selection including Hurts, guard Landon Dickerson, running back Miles Sanders and linebacker Haason Reddick.


Jason Kelce is making his sixth appearance and tackle Lane Johnson, his fourth. Cornerback Darius Slay has been named five times and wide receiver A.J. Brown twice.


The NFL today announced the AFC and NFC rosters for the 2023 Pro Bowl Games presented by Verizon.


The players from each conference will compete in a series of exciting Pro Bowl Skills competitions throughout the week and the first-ever AFC vs. NFC Flag football games on Sunday, February 5, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

The 2023 Pro Bowl Games will begin with both new and fan-favorite Skills live on ESPN from 7:00-8:30 PM ET on Thursday, February 2, and continue on Sunday with Skills and Flag games from 3:00-6:00 PM ET on ESPN and ABC.

Roster selections 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.


The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its All-Stars. It was also the first professional sports league to offer online All-Star voting in 1995.

Thirty teams had at least one player selected to the 2023 Pro Bowl Games roster and 18 clubs had multiple players chosen as All-Stars.


The PHILADELPHIA EAGLES led all teams with eight Pro Bowl selections while the DALLAS COWBOYS and KANSAS CITY CHIEFS each had seven players chosen. Three additional teams – the BALTIMORE RAVENS (six), MINNESOTA VIKINGS (five) and SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (six) – each placed at least five players on the Pro Bowl roster.


Four of the six quarterbacks selected to the initial roster – Buffalo's JOSH ALLEN, Cincinnati's JOE BURROW, Philadelphia's JALEN HURTS and Kansas City's PATRICK MAHOMES – are age 27 or younger.

Mahomes earned his fifth-consecutive Pro Bowl selection while Minnesota's KIRK COUSINS was selected to his fourth Pro Bowl. Seattle quarterback GENO SMITH was chosen for his first Pro Bowl in his 10th career season and became the first quarterback since Rich Gannon (1999) to earn his first Pro Bowl selection in Year 10 or later of his career.


San Francisco's TRENT WILLIAMS was selected to his 10th Pro Bowl, the most among players chosen for the initial roster, becoming the ninth offensive lineman ever with at least 10 career Pro Bowl selections.


Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman AARON DONALD was selected to his ninth career Pro Bowl and is the only defensive lineman ever to make the Pro Bowl in each of his first nine seasons. Only Pro Football Hall of Famers Reggie White (13) and Bruce Smith (11) have more Pro Bowl selections among defensive linemen all-time.

Miami wide receiver TYREEK HILL was selected to his seventh consecutive Pro Bowl and he joins A.J. Green as the only wide receivers to earn Pro Bowl honors in each of their first seven career seasons.


Cincinnati's JA'MARR CHASE and Dallas' MICAH PARSONS were named to their second-consecutive Pro Bowl since entering the NFL in 2021 while four other second-year players – Philadelphia's LANDON DICKERSON, San Francisco's TALANOA HUFANGA, Kansas City's CREED HUMPHREY and Denver's PAT SURTAIN II – each earned their first Pro Bowl selections.


Twenty-five of the players selected to the Pro Bowl today are first-time All-Stars, including rookie cornerbacks SAUCE GARDNER of the New York Jets and TARIQ WOOLEN of the Seattle Seahawks. It marks the second time ever that two rookie cornerbacks made the initial Pro Bowl roster (1982 Pro Bowl - Pro Football Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott and Everson Walls).
