New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Philadelphia Eagles signal-caller Carson Wentz headlined the 2018 Pro Bowl rosters announced by the NFL on Tuesday.

Brady has now been selected to 13 Pro Bowls, including nine straight. Wentz, meanwhile, was selected to his first postseason exhibition and named the NFC's starting quarterback after throwing for 3,296 yards and a franchise-record 33 touchdown passes before he suffered a torn ACL against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14.

According to ESPN Stats & Information and the Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN.com's Mike Triplett), the Saints are the first team in 42 years to send two running backs to the Pro Bowl.

Speaking of historic marks, the Jacksonville Jaguars have four players—their most since 1999—touting Pro Bowl credentials. 

The Jaguars, who will make their first postseason appearance since 2007, are sending cornerbacks A.J. Bouye and Jalen Ramsey as well as defensive linemen Calais Campbell and Malik Jackson to the showcase. 

On the flip side, the Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers, New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts do not have a single representative in the initial 88-man pool. 

If the Colts don't send a player to Orlando through the alternate process, it will be the first time since 1997 that they're not represented at the Pro Bowl.
