Bell tops Pro Bowl fan vote

Posted Dec 16, 2017

Complete Pro Bowl rosters to be announced live on the NFL Network on Tuesday, December 19 at 8:00 PM ET.

RB Le’Veon Bell received 855,539 total fan votes to lead all NFL players in balloting for the 2018 Pro Bowl, as announced on NFL Network. Fan voting ended on Thursday, December 14.

New England QB Tom Brady (833,481 votes) ranked second overall, while WR Antonio Brown (832,446 votes), Philadelphia QB Caron Went (829,174 votes) and New Orleans QB Drew Brees (743,355 votes) rounded out the top five.

The 2018 Pro Bowl rosters will be revealed exclusively on Tuesday, December 19 live on NFL Network’s Pro Bowl special “NFL Total Access: Pro Bowl Players Revealed” at 8:00 PM ET. Players for the game 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 cast their votes on Friday, December 15.

The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its All-Star teams. It was also the first professional sports league to offer online all-star voting in 1995.

The 2018 Pro Bowl, which kicks off at a new start time of 3:00 PM ET on Sunday, January 28, will be televised live from Camping World Stadium on ESPN and ESPN Deportes and simulcast on ABC.

Tickets to the game start at $45 and are on sale now at ProBowl.com. Last year’s sold-out event – the Pro Bowl’s first time in Orlando – featured a capacity crowd of more than 60,000. Fans may visit ProBowl.com for additional information on Pro Bowl Week, which features a variety of free, family-friendly events in Orlando.

The Pro Bowl is an all-inclusive event for fans on gameday. Working with KultureCity, Camping World Stadium’s sensory-inclusive partner, the NFL will offer families who attend the 2018 Pro Bowl support, including sensory accessibility resources and two dedicated sensory rooms located in the stadium on gameday to enable them to enjoy the game with more confidence and comfort.
