LAS VEGAS — The NFL changed the Pro Bowl format this year, replacing the traditional all-star game with a flag football contest and series of other skills events.
The AFC took an early 9-3 lead in the point standings after Thursday's competitions. Click here is a recap.
Four skills events take place Sunday at Allegiant Stadium, and those also will be three points each.
Three flag football games will then be played, the first two each worth six points. The points will then be combined with those accumulated from the skills events, which will be the score entering the third and final flag football game to determine the winner.
Here's everything you need to know about the game:
- Date: Sunday, Feb. 5
- Kickoff: 2 p.m. CT
- TV: ESPN
- Halftime Performer: Rae Sremmurd
- Location: Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas, NV
Here is how the point system is laid out for the Pro Bowl Games:
- The winning conference of each skill competition earns three points towards their team's overall score, with 24 total points available across the eight skills events.
- The winning conference from each of the first two Flag football games on Sunday will earn six points for their team, for a total of 12 available points.
- Points from the skills competitions and first two Flag games will be added together and will be the score at the beginning of the third and final Flag game, which will determine the winning conference for The Pro Bowl Games.
