Patrick Mahomes led all AFC quarterbacks in Pro Bowl voting, earning him the title of being the starter on the AFC Pro Bowl roster. Besides Mahomes, Josh Allen and Deshaun Watson were voted to the Pro Bowl as QBs in the AFC.
After winning the Super Bowl last season, Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs boast an impressive 13-1 record after defeating the New Orleans Saints in Week 15. The All-Pro quarterback has thrown for 4,462 yards, 36 touchdowns, and only five interceptions as the NFL enters Week 16.
On the other hand, Aaron Rodgers was the leading vote-getter in the NFC, earning him the starting spot on the NFC Pro Bowl roster. Along with Rodgers, Russell Wilson and Kyler Murray will join him as the quarterbacks on the roster.
Rodgers has the Green Bay Packers positioned as the No. 1 seed in the NFC after taking down the Carolina Panthers in Week 15. The veteran NFL signal-caller has notched 3,828 yards, a league-leading 40 touchdowns, and only four interceptions thus far.
While the Pro Bowl game won’t take place this season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, players still receive incentives in their NFL contracts for making the Pro Bowl. At the same time, even though a game won’t be played, Mahomes and Rodgers could be meeting each other in the Super Bowl in February.
