The first thing that jumps out about the list is the sheer number of Baltimore Ravens.

Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz of USA Today noted the AFC North champions tied the record with 12 players named to the initial roster. The list is headlined by leading vote-getter and MVP candidate Lamar Jackson, who beat out fellow Pro Bowl quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Patrick Mahomes in the top three for the most fan votes.

The New Orleans Saints (seven) and Kansas City Chiefs (six) rounded out the top three most represented teams for the Jan. 26 game in Orlando, Florida.

The list was also notable for who wasn't selected.

Field Yates of ESPN pointed out the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants were the only teams without a player selected, but the absence of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady stands out from a historical perspective. The three-time MVP, 14-time Pro Bowler and six-time champion wasn't selected for the first time since he tore his ACL during the 2008 campaign.

It is a testament to his team's overall offensive struggles, although Baltimore would surely be fine with Brady serving as a replacement for Jackson in the actual game if the Ravens reach the Super Bowl.
