It’s election season in the NFL. Fans can begin voting to select players for the 2013 Pro Bowl, the NFL’s annual All-Star Game. Voting is available online here: http://www.packers.com/fan-zone/pro-bowl-ballot-2013.html.
Balloting will conclude on Monday, December 17 following the conclusion of Monday Night Football (New York Jets at Tennessee Titans, ESPN, 7:30 pm (CT)). The teams will be announced at 6 pm (CT) Wednesday, December 26 on NFL Network.
The 2013 Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 27, 2013 and televised live on NBC at 6 pm (CT) from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The AFC and NFC All-Star squads are based on the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 43-man rosters that represent the American Football Conference and National Football Conference in the Pro Bowl. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on December 20-21.
The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its all-star teams. It was the first professional sports league to offer online all-star voting in 1995.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was the league’s top vote-getter last year, with 1,581,982 fan votes.
