NFL Pro Bowl: Open Game Thread

The NFL Pro Bowl takes place later today and will feature two Arizona Cardinals. Safety Antrel Rolle will appear in his first Pro Bowl while defensive tackle Darnell Dockett will be entering his second.

Usually the game isn't more then a last glimpse of your favorite players before the long offseason ahead. This year it takes place a week before the Super Bowl as an attempt to revitalize the historically uninteresting game. Whether you like the Pro Bowl or not, there's no arguing that it is a football and what else is there to watch today?

Cardinals' wide out Larry Fitzgerald, safety Adrian Wilson, and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie were set to appear at the game as well, but all pulled out with various reasons. Five Cardinals in the Pro Bowl marks the second straight year that amount has been featured in the game. Had Wilson and DRC appeared, the Cardinals would have featured players in three of the four defensive back spots.

The Pro Bowl takes place at 7:30 p.m. ET, on ESPN at Sun Life Stadium in South Florida.
