The 2020 Pro Bowl Legends Captains, Terrell Davis and Bruce Smith of the AFC and Darrell Green and Michael Vick of the NFC, will lead their respective squads. Each Skills Showdown team will feature 10 All-Stars: two quarterbacks, one running back, two wide receivers/tight ends, three linemen/linebackers and two defensive backs.

Taking place at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, the Skills Showdown will be produced by ESPN and A. Smith & Co. Productions, producers of shows such as American Ninja Warrior, Hell's Kitchen and The Titan Games.

Competitions at the Skills Showdown include:

  • Precision Passing: Each conference's two quarterbacks and one captain-appointed non-quarterback will battle it out in a one-minute accuracy competition, as they attempt to hit as many targets as possible.
  • Gridiron Gauntlet: Five players from each team will participate in a head-to-head relay race designed to showcase strength, speed and agility in competitions including a fumble scramble, and more.
  • Best Hands: Two wide receiver-quarterback duos from each conference will compete in a timed relay race to catch a series of passes at a sequence of downfield targets as quickly as possible. Designated targets require a specific style of catch — diving, one-handed, over the shoulder, etc. — which must be executed before the receiver can move on to the next target.
  • Thread the Needle: New this year, this is a one-minute head-to-head offense vs. defense challenge. Each conference's quarterbacks will try to hit as many targets as possible while the opposing team's defensive backs work together to stop them.
  • Epic Pro Bowl Dodgeball: In the grand finale, Pro Bowlers will compete in a classic game of dodgeball, with every member of each team participating. In a best of three series, the team with the last person on the court wins.
