The stars of the National Football League will descend on Las Vegas for the Pro Bowl on Jan. 31, 2021, the league announced on Tuesday.
Here are some answers to questions you may be asking about the event.
Q: Wait, they still play the Pro Bowl?
A: Yes. It's popular to hate on the event and make jokes about the lack of defense and effort shown by the league's best players, or at least the ones that agree to compete. But guess what?
People still watch it. The 2020 game drew nearly eight million viewers despite occurring just hours after the tragic death of NBA legend Kobe Bryant.
Q: How are the players selected?
A: Fans, players and coaches are all part of the selection process for a 44-man roster from each conference.
