The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams will play in Super Bowl LIII. But there's still one more NFL game before those two teams battle for a championship on Feb. 3.

The Pro Bowl takes place this Sunday, as some of the top players from the AFC and the NFC will go head-to-head. Rosters were revealed last month after a selection process that included player voting, coach voting and fan voting, with each group counting for one-third of the final tally.

Rosters can still change this week, as more players could drop out due to injury or other reasons, which will open spots for more replacement players.

Below is more information on this year's Pro Bowl, along with a look at the format and current rosters.


2019 NFL Pro Bowl Information

Date: Sunday, Jan. 27

Time: 3 p.m. ET

Location: Camping World Stadium, Orlando


Live Stream: Watch ESPN and FuboTV



After the Pro Bowl utilized a draft format from 2014-16, the game returned to an AFC vs. NFC contest in 2017. This will be the third straight year that the game will be a matchup of the two conferences.

Like the past five years, the Pro Bowl will have no kickoffs, and there will be a two-minute warning in every quarter.

The Pro Bowl will be preceded by the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown, which will take place on Wednesday and be aired on ESPN on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET.

This is the last year of a three-year deal that the Pro Bowl has with Camping World Stadium to host the game.


Current Pro Bowl Rosters (Subject to Change)

Note: Players from the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots will not be playing in the Pro Bowl as they prepare for Super Bowl LIII on Sunday, Feb. 3.

The rosters will have numerous additions this week, as four Rams players (Jared Goff, Todd Gurley, Aaron Donald, Cory Littleton) and two Patriots players (Tom Brady, Stephon Gilmore) will not play in the Pro Bowl due to their teams making the Super Bowl.

The Steelers currently lead all teams with eight players named to the Pro Bowl, although Antonio Brown and David DeCastro will miss the game due to injury. It's possible that Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger could be added to the AFC roster, as Brady won't be participating in the game.

In the NFC, the Cowboys currently lead all teams with six players on the roster—Ezekiel Elliott, Tyron Smith, Zack Martin, DeMarcus Lawrence, Leighton Vander Esch and Byron Jones.
