Dodgeball (Thursday): A multi-round tournament featuring four teams of five players that begins with the offenses and defenses from both conferences squaring off and culminates in an AFC vs. NFC showdown. In the first match, the AFC offense will face the AFC defense to determine the AFC winner. In the second game, the NFC offense squares off with the NFC defense to determine the NFC winner. In the finales, the AFC winner and NFC winner meet to determine which conference will points.
Lightning Round (Thursday): 16 players compete in a three-part elimination challenge that will leave one player left at the end to earn three points for his conference. Round 1 features a classic water balloon toss. Round 2 will be players catching punts from a JUGS machine. Round 3, the championship round, the remaining players from each conference will aim at targets attached to a bucket hanging above the head of an opposing conference’s coach.
Longest Drive (Thursday): Four players from each conference will compete in a challenge to drive a golf ball the furthest distance off a tee. Each player will get three swings and the player that drives the furthest within the boundaries on each side of the fairway will win three points for his conference.
Precision Passing (Thursday): Each conference's two quarterbacks and one non-quarterback will battle it out in a one-minute accuracy competition, as they attempt to hit as many targets as possible.
Best Catch Round 1 (Thursday): Two players from each conference will compete in a best catch competition, showing off their creativity, inventiveness and talent. Fans will vote online to determine their favorite catch by a player in each conference, and the players with the highest votes will compete in the finals on Sunday.
Best Catch Round 2 (Sunday): The top vote getters of Thursday's event from each conference will compete head-to-head, as they perform in front of panel of celebrity judges.
Gridiron Gauntlet (Sunday): Six players from each conference will complete in a side-by-side, 40-yard relay race that includes a series of breakaway walls, a section of climbing over walls and under tables, a tire run and a blocking sled carrying a Legend coach across the finish line.
Move the Chains (Sunday): Four teams (two teams from each conference) will compete side by side in a weighted wall pull that will showcase their strength, speed and ingenuity.
Kick Tac Toe (Sunday): Each team’s kicker, punter and long snapper compete, with the first team to complete a connecting line of three squares or hit five squares total will be declared the winner.
What is the point system for the Pro Bowl Games?
The winning conference of each skill challenge will earn three points toward an overall score, with 24 points available in the eight skills competitions. The winning conference from each of the first two flag football games on Sunday will earn six points with a total of 12 points available.
Finally, the points from the skills competitions and the first two flag football games will be tabulated and will be the score ahead of the third and final flag football game, which is worth another six points and could ultimately determine the winning conference for the Pro Bowl Games.
