LAS VEGAS – The NFL will hold a revamped Pro Bowl week, called the Pro Bowl Games. The traditional football game has disappeared, featuring skill competitions and three flag football games Thursday and Sunday at Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders. There will be points to determine the overall winner between the AFC and the NFC in all events in play.
Peyton Manning will coach the AFC team, and his brother Eli will coach the NFC. The roster selection was determined by consensus votes from fans, players and coaches. Each team’s vote counted for one-third to determine the 88 players.
Here’s what to expect.
How to see?
Thursday’s skills competition will be available on ESPN and ESPN+ from 7:00-8:30 PM ET, while Sunday’s skills competition and flag matches will be available on ABC, ESPN/ESPN+ from 3:00-6:00 PM ET.
February 2, Thursday
Epic Pro Bowl dodgeball: It will be a multi-round tournament of classic dodgeball, with four teams of five players each. It will begin with the attacks and defenses of the AFC and the NFC competing against each other, and the AFC vs. The NFC will end in the final round. The overall winner receives all three points.
Round lightning: It is a new event for 2023. Each conference will select 16 players to compete in a three-part contest with another three point game. The first event is “Splash Catch,” where team members from each conference throw water balloons at each other over increasing distances. The event then transitions to “High Stakes”, challenging players ahead to catch a punk from a JUGS machine. In the final phase, the rest of the players go for the “Thrill of the Spill”, where the players aim at the cubes hanging above the opponent’s coach’s head. The first team to throw the cube wins.
The longest record: Four players from each conference will compete for longest off the golf tee. Each player gets three swings, and the winner is decided by the longest drive within predetermined limits. The winner gets the three points.
Pass with accuracy: Each of the three quarters from each conference will compete in a one-minute competition testing their accuracy. The quarterback with the most targets wins the three points for his conference.
Best catch: Two players from each conference compete to show off their creativity by showcasing receptions filmed at iconic locations around Las Vegas. An online fan vote will decide the favorite from each conference, and the two finalists will compete in the next round on Sunday.
February 5, Sunday
Best catch: Thursday’s two finalists compete in front of celebrity judges to determine the overall winner.
Gridiron gauntlet: The race format will feature six players from each conference competing in the four-part, 40-yard gauntlet. Challenges include tire racing and pushing a blocked sled across the finish line.
Kick-tac-toe: Kickers, punters and long snappers will compete in a giant tic-tac-toe competition that showcases their respective skills. The first team to complete a connecting line in three squares will win three points for their conference.
Move the strings: Two teams from each congress will compete in a weighted wall pull that tests their strength and speed. Each team of five players must pull a 10 meter heavy wall. The best-of-three competition is worth three points.
Flag football matches: The conference winner of the first two pennant games will earn six points. The points from the skill competitions and the first two flag matches will be combined and carried as a score at the start of the third and final flag match. The winner at the end of that game will be the conference winner.
