The early Pro Bowl, contested by the National Football League's Eastern and Western Division stars and played at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum , featured the same uniforms from the s to mids; the Eastern team wore scarlet jerseys with white numerals and a white crescent shoulder stripe, white pants with red stripe, red socks, and a plain red helmet.
The Western team wore white jerseys with royal-blue numerals and a Northwestern University -style Ukon triple stripe on the sleeves, white pants with blue stripe and socks and a plain blue helmet.
Perhaps oddly, the Eastern team wore home dark jerseys, although the host city team, the Los Angeles Rams , were members of the Western Conference.
From January to January both teams wore gold helmets with the NFL logo on the sides; the Eastern helmets featured a red-white-red tri-stripe and the Western a similar blue-white-blue tri-stripe.
In fact, the players brought their own game helmets to Los Angeles, which were then spray-painted and decorated for the contest. For the game the helmets featured the '50 NFL' logo, commemorating the league's half-century anniversary.
The AFC's red helmets were paired with white jerseys and red pants, while the NFC's white helmets were paired with blue jerseys and white pants.
Two players with the same number who are elected to the Pro Bowl can now wear the same number for that game.
This was not always the case in the past. The Pro Bowl included a unique example of several players from the same team wearing the same number in a Pro Bowl.
On October 7, , Nike unveiled the uniforms for the Pro Bowl , which revealed that the red, white and blue colors that the game uniforms bore throughout its entire history will no longer be used for this game.
As the NFC—AFC format was not used between through , team 1 sported a white uniform with bright orange and team 2 sported a gray uniform with volt green.
Oklahoma State " game. Since , when the conference format was restored, the league takes an approach similar to the NFL Color Rush initiative, in which jerseys, pants, and socks were all a uniform color red for the AFC, blue for the NFC.
As of the Pro Bowl , 28 players have been invited to at least 11 Pro Bowls in their careers. For decades, the Pro Bowl has been criticized as a glamour event more than a football game.
This is due to two causes: the voluntary nature of the game, and the fear of player injury. Many star players have excused themselves from participation over the years, meaning that the very best players are not necessarily featured.
Not having the best players in the Pro Bowl was exacerbated by the introduction of fan voting see section below. Another criticism of the game is that the players—particularly on defense—are not playing "full speed".
This is because player injury plays a much greater part in a team's success in the NFL as compared to the other major American sports.
This means that a player injured in the Pro Bowl would have at least six months to rehab before the next season begins. However, starting in , the Pro Bowl was moved from the week after the Super Bowl to the week before the Super Bowl.
Because of the above-noted fear of injury, players from the two teams participating in the Super Bowl were banned from participation, meaning that the absence of star players was only increased.
With the dearth of stars making the game the subject of much derision Sports Illustrated website refused to even include one pre-game story on the event in , [ citation needed ] the players on the field appear to be taking it less seriously as well.
One NFL player watching the game said, "They probably should have just put flags on them,"  indicating that the quality was about on the level of flag football.
Commissioner Roger Goodell stated that the game needed to improve, otherwise it would be eliminated. This, among other factors, caused the Pro Bowl to be more of a game featuring emerging players, with a record of players selected overall including those who were absent , and ended up including rookie quarterback Jameis Winston instead of recognized veterans Tom Brady and Carson Palmer , who were both in the conversation for the NFL season MVP before losing in their respective conference finals.
Fan voting has increased criticism [ according to whom? Some teams earn more selections of their players because fans often vote for their favorite team and not necessarily the best player.
You just have to work hard and play. The player voting has also been subject to significant criticism. It is not uncommon for players to pick the same players over and over again; former offensive lineman and Sports Illustrated analyst Ross Tucker has cited politics, incumbency, personal vendettas, and compensation for injury in previous years as primary factors in players' choices.
Thus, players who have seen their play decline with age can still be perennially elected to the Pro Bowl due to their popularity among other players, something particularly common among positions such as the offensive line, where few statistics are available.
Some players have had a surprisingly small number of Pro Bowl selections despite distinguished careers. Hall of Fame running back John Riggins was selected only once in his career from to He was not selected in the year after which he set the record for rushing touchdowns in a season and his team made it to the Super Bowl although he did make the All-Pro team.
Defensive back Ken Riley never made the Pro Bowl in his 15 seasons, even though he recorded 65 interceptions, the fourth-highest total in NFL history at the time of his retirement.
Former Jacksonville Jaguars halfback Fred Taylor , who is 15th in all-time rushing yards, was elected to his only Pro Bowl in , despite averaging 4.
Aaron Smith made it to the Pro Bowl once in 13 years despite winning two Super Bowl rings with the Pittsburgh Steelers and being named to the Sports Illustrated s All Decade Team , despite defensive teammates such as Troy Polamalu , Casey Hampton , and James Harrison being named to multiple Pro Bowls during his career; Smith would often be ranked as one of the NFL's most underrated players during his career.

Brees remains publicly uncertain about whether he'll return in , but he told Salters he's likely to make an official decision on his future by mid-February.
The NFL allowed teams to experiment with a new onside rule, permitting a fourth-and attempt from a team's own yard line in lieu of the standard kickoff attempt.
It ultimately popped up just once, with the NFC squad trying it with about four minutes left in the contest. The latter's strip-sack helped put the AFC back on top in the fourth.

Two minutes left in this year's Pro Bowl. Chark yard touchdown reception from Ryan Tannehill , Justin Tucker kick good.

Mark Andrews. Michael Thomas. Patrick Ricard. Harrison Smith. Chark , Jacksonville [a]. Offensive tackle.
Watt , Pittsburgh. Free safety. Strong safety. Jackson six interceptions , Fuller seven interceptions , Cohen Chicago's top all-purpose threat and Hicks six sacks are all first-time choices.
The Bears haven't had five players named to the Pro Bowl since Slay had a much better season in , when he had eight interceptions. He arguably hasn't even been the Lions' top defensive back this season -- that could be safety Quandre Diggs , who has been named a Pro Bowl alternate.
Slay has 37 tackles and three interceptions but had his first NFL pick-six. Slay is the first Lions player to go to back-to-back Pro Bowls since Calvin Johnson went to six straight from to '15, and he's just the third Detroit cornerback to make the Pro Bowl in back-to-back years in the Super Bowl era, along with Lem Barney and Dre Bly.
Left tackle David Bakhtiari , center Corey Linsley and nose tackle Kenny Clark were all named alternates but none is a first alternate, which is unfathomable in Bakhtiari's case, considering he has been named second-team All-Pro in each of the past two seasons.
Meanwhile, Adams should finally feel appreciated for what he has done dating to the start of the season -- tied for the most TD catches 34 in the league.
Rodgers' TD-to-INT differential to-2 is best in the league by far, but he hasn't really had a great season. Rodgers hasn't actually played in the Pro Bowl in any of the previous four times he was selected.
Adams played in the game last year as an alternate in place of Julio Jones. The fans who participated in voting got it right the first time this year with Smith, who arguably was the league's biggest snub in until he made his way onto the roster as an alternate.
Smith is the first player to have three sacks and three interceptions in a single season since Despite struggling early this season, Barr is also on his way to his fourth straight Pro Bowl, and his play in recent weeks -- where he has been brought in to rush the passer more frequently -- shows the depths of his skill set.
Thielen felt like a lock to make a repeat trip to Orlando since he started the season with eight consecutive games of yards receiving and stands No.
While the Vikings' star-studded defensive line got only one selection in , Hunter was easily the inevitable choice given he leads all NFC DEs in tackles 66 , sacks The Vikings had six Pro Bowl selections last year, a franchise high during coach Mike Zimmer's tenure, and could be in the mix to match that number should Xavier Rhodes and Linval Joseph make it as alternates.
Despite the Falcons' record, Jones still leads the NFL with 1, receiving yards while drawing double-team coverage at times.
Mack has managed to play at a Pro Bowl level despite the offensive line's struggles around him. Jones returned after missing 10 games, while coach Dan Quinn said two-time Pro Bowler Freeman is unlikely to make his way back in No player in Carolina history has been selected to the Pro Bowl more times while with the team than Kuechly.
He was in a six-way tie with five before this season. Turner made the Pro Bowl for the fourth year in a row. He's anchored one of the best rushing attacks in the NFL.
No back may be more valuable to his team for all McCaffrey does. His physicality is really [undervalued]. But he's very physical, runs between the tackles.
There's nothing he really can't do. Since having a franchise-record and NFL-high 10 Pro Bowl selections in the Panthers have had a combined seven -- four in , one in and two in -- since.
It's crazy to think the Saints got "snubbed" with five Pro Bowlers -- especially considering they had zero initial selections in both and , when they were in the middle of three straight seasons.
But they really could have dominated this list. Running back Alvin Kamara and kicker Wil Lutz are the most notable snubs.
On the flip side, Brees has gotten plenty of love in his career. His 12th Pro Bowl selection puts him in a tie for ninth place among all players in league history.
