The battle for conference supremacy

For three years from 2014-16, the Pro Bowl opted to change to a draft-style format that featured a pool of players with two captains picking the teams. However, that format is now gone.

The Pro Bowl returned to an AFC vs. NFC format in 2017, making this the fourth season since the return to the traditional matchup.

The AFC has won all three Pro Bowls since the return to this format. It now holds a 24-22 lead in the all-time series against the NFC after its 26-7 win in last year's matchup. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Jets safety Jamal Adams were the MVPs in that game.

The last time the NFC won a Pro Bowl was in 2013, the final year before the brief switch to the draft format. It won that game over the AFC 62-35.

       

Here are the different rules

There will be some things that happen differently during the Pro Bowl from a traditional NFL game.

One major difference is that there are no kickoffs in the Pro Bowl. Teams will start at their own 25-yard line following a score. There will also be a two-minute warning in each quarter.

Some other rules are in place to ensure player safety. Defenses aren't allowed to blitz, and intentional grounding by the quarterback is legal. There can also be no blocks below the waist.

Offenses must also have a running back and tight end in all formations. They also can't shift or move a player in motion.

         

Ravens, Seahawks coaching staffs set to lead teams

A pair of veteran head coaches will be leading the Pro Bowl teams this season.

The AFC will be led by John Harbaugh and the Ravens' coaching staff. Baltimore went 14-2 during the regular season, winning a franchise-record 12 consecutive games to end the year. It was the Ravens' first 14-win regular season in franchise history, as they earned the No. 1 seed in the AFC for the first time.

However, Baltimore's season had a disappointing end. It lost at home to Tennessee in the divisional round—its first playoff game—falling well short of its goal of winning the Super Bowl.

The NFC will be led by Pete Carroll and the Seahawks' coaching staff. Seattle went 11-5 during the regular season, earning the top wild-card berth in the NFC. The Seahawks went on the road and beat the Eagles in the Wild Card Round, before losing to the Packers in the divisional round.

Harbaugh and Carroll are both former Super Bowl champions with their respective teams.
