The AFC and NFC All-Star squads are based on the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches.

NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Dec. 21-22.

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.
