As we await Super Bowl 50 next Sunday, the Pro Bowl will kick off Super Bowl week when the NFL's best (minus 45+ players who passed on the game) take the field at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii.
Team Rice, featuring Cedric Peerman will take on Team Irvin, featuring Geno Atkins, A.J. Green, Tyler Eifert, Adam Jones, Andrew Whitworth, and Carlos Dunlap.
The legitimacy of the Pro Bowl has been greatly questioned as more players than ever dropped out of the game this year due to injury, playing in the Super Bowl, or fear of injury, which seems to mean simply not wanting to play in the game. To me, it looks like they're missing out, because the Bengals players in the Pro Bowl are having a blast in Hawaii.
Here's everything to know to get you ready for the game.
What: 2016 Pro Bowl
When: Sunday, Jan. 31, 7 p.m. EST
