While the NFL prepares for Super Bowl 57, they will hold the 2023 Pro Bowl before hand. Here is when the updated event will take place and how to watch it.
Over the years the NFL has faced criticism about the Pro Bowl. While it was an All Star Game between the top players in the AFC and NFC, the effort wasn’t exactly there, and who could blame them. Why risk an injury?
But in 2023, the NFL announced that they have revamped the yearly event as the Pro Bowl Games. Instead of the traditional football game, it has been replaced with three seven-on-seven flag football games between the top players in the AFC and NFC. Not to mention that there will be various skill competitions between both conferences. It was something that received quite the warm welcome from fans who were not fans of the previous, meaningless game.
The AFC will be coached by Peyton Manning, while the NFC will have Eli Manning as their sideline boss. Additionally, the league announced the full rosters for the AFC and NFC teams.
