Maybe it’s me, or maybe the NFL season is going by fairly fast, but the NFL announced on Thursday that 2017 Pro Bowl voting is open for fans.
Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida is the new venue for this year’s game, which happens on Sunday, January 29, 2017. The event will be televised live on ESPN, and returns to the traditional AFC vs. NFC format after three straight years of an unconferenced format. It will be the first time Florida hosts the Pro Bowl since the 2009 season.
Voting is open through Tuesday, December 13. According to the NFL’s press release, Pro Bowl players 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 who will be selected to the Pro Bowl. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Friday, December 16.
Pro Bowl rosters of the 88 total players will be announced on Tuesday, December 20 live on NFL Network. Last year saw only Cameron Jordan making the cut for the Saints.
