Philip Rivers and the AFC will take on Michael Vick and the NFC in the 2011 Pro Bowl on Sunday at 7:00 PM Eastern at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. The game will be broadcast on FOX.
The Steelers, naturally, won’t play in the Pro Bowl, since they’re playing in the Super Bowl. You can check this storystream for full Pro Bowl rosters. The starters are listed here. The AFC has been working harder than the NFC in preparation for this one, and of course it would be nice to see the Steelers’ conference win. (Brandon Lloyd, in particular, apparently wants to win badly.) But as Jeff says below, there won’t be a ton of hard-hitting football here, since no one wants to get hurt in what is essentially an exhibition game, and the Steelers aren’t involved. So feel free to sit this one out, if you like. The most likely headline is Rivers trash-talking Jay Cutler some more.
