The QB is among the top 8 best professional players in the NFL

The Philadelphia Eagles have the best record in the NFL at 13-1. Now they lead the NFL in invitations to Pro Bowl games as well.

Eight Eagles players — quarterback Jalen Hurts, wide receiver AJ Brown, offensive linemen Landon Dickerson, Lynn Johnson and Jason Kelsey, edge Hasson Reddick, running back Miles Sanders and linebacker Darius Slay — all made the NFC team on Wednesday.

Five other teams field at least five players. Seven members of the Dallas Cowboys and Kansas City Chiefs were invited. The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers each account for six players, while the Minnesota Vikings have had five players.

Pro Bowl teams are determined by combining the votes of three groups: fans, players, and coaches. Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa received the most votes by fans, followed by Dolphins receiver Terek Hill, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson and Chiefs tight end Travis Kelsey. All five made their own teams.

The NFC and AFC teams will face a new week of activities, now known as the Pro Bowl Games. The NFL announced in September that it would no longer play a traditional football game in the Pro Bowl, opting instead for a series of events that will include multiple skill contests and a flag football game.

The previous format, which dates back to 1951, has been under scrutiny for more than a decade as players have grown increasingly reluctant to expose themselves to the physical blows that occur during standard games.

The week of the Pro Bowl games will take place in Las Vegas, and the football game is scheduled for February 5th. Peyton Manning is the AFC coach, and his brother Eli Manning is the NFC coach. Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions will co-program and promote the event.
