The 2013 Pro Bowl gets underway on Sunday night, and center Maurkice Pouncey will be the lone representative for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tight end Heath Miller also was selected to participate in the game, but he'll sit it out because of an injury.

Pouncey started 15 games for Pittsburgh during the 2012 regular season, and he's been a mainstay in the starting lineup since the team drafted him in the first round in 2010. Miller finished the season with 816 receiving yards, which ranked fifth among all tight ends and was tops among AFC tight ends. He also hauled in eight touchdown receptions.

The Pro Bowl is slated to get underway at 7 p.m. ET on NBC, and the AFC will be trying to start a winning streak. The AFC beat the NFC last year, 59-41, scoring a Pro Bowl-record number of points in the process.
