The 2023 Pro Bowl Games will take place on Sunday, Feb. 5, and will feature three seven-on-seven flag football games. Preceding the games will be a weeklong series of competitions. The Manning brothers will be tasked with determining the lineups for the games and who will be participating in the skills competitions.
According to a press release, "Points are cumulative across skills competitions and first two flag games, with the third and final flag game determining the ultimate winner."
For what it's worth, the Manning brothers faced off three times in their NFL careers, with Peyton winning all three matchups.
