AFC Looking for 2nd Straight Win, Advantage in All-Time Series
The AFC used a pair of second-quarter touchdown receptions by tight ends Delanie Walker and Travis Kelce from Alex Smith and Andy Dalton to open up a slender advantage in the 2017 Pro Bowl.
Two field goals from Justin Tucker helped secure the 20-13 victory and level the all-time series at 22 wins apiece.
Of the players who scored points for the AFC last year, only Smith and Walker will have a chance to replicate their success Sunday.
The AFC has the potential to do a ton of damage on the ground, with LeSean McCoy, Le’Veon Bell and Kareem Hunt at running back.
As if that combination weren’t scary enough, Antonio Brown, Jarvis Landry, Keenan Allen and T.Y. Hilton are the targets the AFC quarterbacks will have the pleasure of throwing to at wide receiver.
On the other side of the ball, the AFC possesses five members of the Jacksonville Jaguars defense, including defensive backs Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye.

The shutdown corners get to go up against Adam Thielen, Michael Thomas, Davante Adams and Doug Baldwin with the opportunity to put on one more dominant performance before the offseason hits.
The NFC counters with a plethora of talent at quarterback, including Drew Brees, Jared Goff and Russell Wilson, but just like the AFC, the running backs could be stars of the offense, with Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram and Todd Gurley in the backfield.
Look for the NFC defense to relish the challenge of stopping the AFC offense with plenty of intriguing battles strewn across the field.
One of the top matchups to watch will feature corners Patrick Peterson, Marshon Lattimore and Xavier Rhodes, who have the task of attempting to silence Brown.
Steelers, Saints Boast Large Contingent Working with Own Coaching Staffs
Not only will the Steelers and Saints have a heavy influence on the Pro Bowl because their respective coaching staffs are in charge, but they also have 17 combined players who have been selected for the game.
Pittsburgh had 10 players named to the Pro Bowl, with only linebacker Ryan Shazier missing the game because of an injury.

Kicker Chris Boswell will represent the Steelers on special teams, and defensive lineman Cameron Heyward will suit up for the AFC defense. The team’s official Twitter account gave us a look at the crowded picture of all nine Pro Bowl participants.
The coaching staff and the players agreed being together makes the Pro Bowl experience better. Special teams coordinator Danny Smith elaborated on that to Teresa Varley of the team’s official website.
“It’s special to have your guys with you,” Smith said. “They did a great job. You know them. I will get to know the other guys, those are relationships that are good to build, but to have your own guys is the best.”
Brees, Kamara, Ingram and Thomas lead the Saints contingent on offense that will also feature guard Larry Warford.
