Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, with 273,367 votes, leads all players in balloting for the 2018 Pro Bowl. The rosters will be announced live on NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access: Pro Bowl Players Revealed” on Tuesday, Dec. 19 at 8:00 PM ET.
New England quarterback Tom Brady (239,989 votes) ranks second overall, while Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell (227,771 votes), Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley (215,687 votes) and Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown (215,584 votes) round out the top five.
Fan voting for the 2018 Pro Bowl will continue online and on web-enabled mobile phones until Thursday, Dec. 14. Fans may also 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. The entry cards will initiate a private “Direct Message” and let fans select a position group or search for a player or team to begin the voting process.
During the final week of 2018 Pro Bowl voting — Dec. 7-14 — fans will be able to vote directly on Twitter by tweeting the first and last name of the player, or the player’s official Twitter handle, with the hashtag: #ProBowlVote. This is in addition to the online ballot and the DM Voting Experience.
The 2018 Pro Bowl, which kicks off at a new start time of 3:00 PM ET, will be televised live from Camping World Stadium on ESPN and ESPN Deportes and simulcast on ABC. The players are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 Pro Bowl players. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Friday, Dec. 15.
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 are on sale at NFL.com/ProBowlOnSale. Last year’s Pro Bowl — held for the first time in Orlando — featured a sellout crowd of more than 60,000. Fans can find additional information on Pro Bowl Week, which features a variety of free, family-friendly events in Orlando, at ProBowl.com.
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 to enjoy the game with more confidence and comfort.
