AFC Pro Bowl roster 2013: Peyton Manning, Tom Brady lead the way

Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

Peyton Manning and Tom Brady lead the star-studded AFC roster into the 2013 Pro Bowl. Heath Miller and Maurkice Pouncey were the two Steelers to make the cut.

The 2013 Pro Bowl rosters were announced Wednesday evening, and Peyton Manning has been named the starting quarterback for the AFC, with Tom Brady playing behind him. Tight end Heath Miller and center Maurkice Pouncey both made the team and will represent the Steelers.

Matt Schaub will join Manning and Brady as the third quarterback on the team. He has led the Houston Texans to a 12-3 mark this year, tied for the best in the AFC.

Both Brady and Schaub will have familiar faces to find on offense. Houston's Arian Foster will be the starting running back and New England's Rob Gronkowski will start at tight end. A.J. Green and Andre Johnson will start the game as wide receivers for the AFC.

Miller, whose season is over after tearing his ACL, will not play in the game, but receives the honor after a year in which he caught eight touchdown passes and totaled 816 yards for the Steelers at tight end.

The complete AFC roster can be found here and the 2013 Pro Bowl will be played at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii on Jan. 27.
