Super Bowl LIII is still more than a week away, and there is no meaningful NFL action this week. However, that doesn't mean the league isn't giving fans a little something to tide them over. Sunday brings us the 2019 Pro Bowl, and one final chance to see some of our favorite stars in action.
We say "some" because, naturally, not everyone is going to be there. Plenty of players have pulled out for injuries or other personal reasons, and members of the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams are busy getting ready for something a little bigger.
Several standout pros from each conference will be on hand, though, and we have the full list here—along with everything else you need to know to enjoy the game.
2019 NFL Pro Bowl
Who: AFC vs. NFC
Where: Camping World Stadium, Orlando, Florida
When: Sunday, January 27 at 3 p.m. ET
National TV and Live Stream: ESPN, ABC and WatchESPN
While the Pro Bowl game itself won't be played until Sunday, fans have another event to enjoy on Thursday—the Pro Bowl Skills Challenge.
Teams from each conference will compete in a series of five events: the 40-Yard Splash, Gridiron Gauntlet, Best Hands, Precision Passing and Epic Pro Bowl Dodgeball.
While the passing, hands and dodgeball competitions are fairly self-explanatory, the gauntlet and splash competitions are a bit different. The splash competition involves filling up a tank and dunking opposing players, while the gauntlet is a five-man relay race around an obstacle course.
While the skills challenge actually took place on Wednesday, it will be televised on Thursday evening.

Date: Thursday, Jan. 24
Time: 9 p.m. ET

While players may not love the fact the Pro Bowl takes place in Orlando, Florida, instead of Hawaii this year, this does make things a bit easier for fans who wish to be a part of the action.
"Obviously with our corporate footprint, I think it's a terrific place to have it," ESPN VP of programming Scott Guglielmino said, per Hal Boedeker of the Orlando Sentinel. "With ESPN Wide of World of Sports down there as well, it’s been a great partnership with Orlando the city as well as throughout the Disney company."
Even with the skills competition in the rear view for local fans, there is still a wide variety of events to attend.
The Pro Bowl Experience takes place daily, there is a band exhibition on Thursday night, and Friday features the Play Football Celebrity Flag Game. The semifinals and championship take place on Saturday as well, with Pro Bowl players serving as honorary captains.
A full list of the fan-centric events can be viewed here.
Pro Bowl Practices
Fans in the area can also attend the AFC and NFC practices, but they will need to register for a pass through either the Fan Mobile Pass app or ProBowl.com.
The AFC will practice on Field 7 of the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, while the NFC will be on Field 16. Final practices for both squads will take place on Thursday and Friday mornings.
