Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Packers QB Aaron Rodgers topped the AFC and NFC Pro Bowl rosters announced Monday.
Both players have dominated this season. Rodgers leads the NFL with 40 touchdown passes, while no player has more than Mahomes 4,462 passing yards.
With his 40 TD passes, Rodgers is the first player with 40 or more passing touchdowns in three seasons in NFL history. He also threw 40-plus TDs in 2011 and 2016.
The Chiefs, Packers, Ravens and Seahawks each had a league-high seven players make the Pro Bowl. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson made the NFC roster.
Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was an NFC selection as well. With his performance against the Eagles on Sunday, Murray became the fourth quarterback in the Super Bowl era aged 23 or younger to throw for 400-plus yards and have a 125-plus passer rating in a game. The previous three — Dan Marino, Jared Goff and Mahomes — all reached the Super Bowl in that season.
The 2021 Pro Bowl game was originally scheduled for Jan. 31 but the NFL canceled it last October because of the coronavirus pandemic.
