EZEKIEL ELLIOTT LEADS PRO BOWL VOTING

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back EZEKIEL ELLIOTT, with 681,361 votes, leads all players in balloting for the 2017 Pro Bowl, NFL.com announced today.

Dallas rookie quarterback DAK PRESCOTT (607,621 votes) ranks second overall, while New England Patriots quarterback TOM BRADY (519,210 votes), Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver

ANTONIO BROWN (508,913 votes) and Oakland Raiders quarterback DEREK CARR (500,770 votes) round out the top five.

Fan voting for the 2017 Pro Bowl will continue online and on web-enabled mobile phones at www.NFL.com/probowlvote until Tuesday, December 13. See official rules on how to vote at www.NFL.com/probowlvoterules.com. Fans may also vote for who they want to see on the 2017 Pro Bowl roster via social media by using #ProBowlVote and the player’s first and last name on Twitter and Instagram. On Facebook, fans may comment on any official Pro Bowl Vote post by the NFL or a club.

The Pro Bowl players are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 All-Star players who will be selected to the Pro Bowl. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Friday, December 16. The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its all-star teams. It was the first professional sports league to offer online all-star voting in 1995.

The Pro Bowl players will be announced on Tuesday, December 20 in a live primetime special on NFL Network.

The game will be played on Sunday, January 29, 2017 and simulcast live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes from Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.  Fans may visit NFL.com/ProBowlOnSale to purchase game tickets.

The 2017 Pro Bowl will feature a return to the traditional AFC vs. NFC format following three years using a revised, “unconferenced” structure.
