The Pro Bowl, of course, is a lot more than just a game. It’s a reward for the best players in the NFL, voted on by their peers, coaches, and fans. And that reward features a lot of fun during the week—like a skills competition, and a dodgeball battle. The actual game is just the final act of a fun week—don’t expect too much competitive play, is what I’m saying.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have two representatives at the Pro Bowl: defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, who was voted in for the sixth straight year, and linebacker Kwon Alexander, who is replacing the Seattle Seahawks’ Bobby Wagner. Not a lot of Bucs, then, but still enough to root for the NFC rather than the AFC.
