The 2014 NFL Pro Bowl selections have been announced. And while some familiar faces are set to head back to Hawaii, there was a fair share of notable surprises.

Denver Broncos quarterback and MVP favorite Peyton Manning headlines the list of selections. The veteran signal-caller has now earned 13 Pro Bowl nods, tying him for second all-time alongside Tony Gonzalez, Jerry Rice, Reggie White and Ray Lewis.

Manning's selection came as no surprise, though, as he broke the single-season record for touchdown passes in Week 16's blowout win over the Houston Texans. The 37-year-old has thrown for 5,211 yards and 51 touchdowns in 2013 and only needs 266 yards in Week 17 to snap Drew Brees' record for single-season passing yards. 

Manning is joined by the following list of names:

Despite a dismal 2-13 record, the Houston Texans will send multiple players to the Pro Bowl in January. Wide receiver Andre Johnson, who has quietly racked up over 1,350 yards this season, earned his seventh Pro Bowl invitation, while dominant defensive lineman J.J. Watt was selected for the second straight year as well.

Defensively, few players have been as dominant as St. Louis Rams defensive end Robert Quinn, who leads the league with 18 sacks heading into Week 17. Quinn also forced seven fumbles en route to earning his first-ever Pro Bowl nod.

Seattle Seahawks offensive lineman Russell Okung has to face Quinn twice a year and has high praise for the first-time Pro Bowler, per The News Tribune's Todd Dybas:

His athleticism’s off the charts. He has really long arms; he plays with his hands extremely well. He has a really good knack for getting around the edge and hitting you inside with a really good counter, too.

He kind of plays off that, then he gets you into his games and before you know it he’s trying to set you up. He’s a very talented player, man.

Meanwhile, Seahawks trash-talking cornerback Richard Sherman was selected to the Pro Bowl for the second straight year after recording eight interceptions in consecutive seasons. However, unlike the Texans and Rams, the Seahawks are a favorite to reach Super Bowl XLVIII, which means Sherman could wind up skipping the trip to Honolulu next month.

On Jan. 22, captains Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will draft the selected players to their respective teams to form the two rosters. 

The 2014 Pro Bowl is scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 26 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.
