Fourteen teams in the NFL will be represented by various players this year in the NFL's annual Pro Bowl, but four teams will have a much stronger presence than others.
Eight Patriots, eight 49ers, seven Green Bay Packers and seven Baltimore Ravens have been selected to play in the January 29th game in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Aaron Rodgers will take the reigns as the NFC's starting quarterback and face off against 3-time Super Bowl champ Tom Brady, who will be starting QB for the AFC.
Since both players have a significant chance of making the Super Bowl and therefore would not play in the Pro Bowl, they may end up being replaced by either Drew Brees or rookie Cam Newton for the NFC, while Andy Dalton has been announced as AFC's first alternate at quarterback.
NFC Starting Offense:
QB Aaron Rodgers, Eagles RB LeSean McCoy, Packers FB John Kuhn, Graham, Panthers C Ryan Kalil, Saints guards Jahri Evans and Carl Nicks, Eagles tackle Jason Peters and Staley, Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald and Lions WR Calvin Johnson on offense.
NFC Starting Defense:
Vikings DE Jared Allen and Eagles DE Jason Babin, Cowboys DT Jay Ratliff and Smith, Packers OLB Clay Matthews and Cowboys OLB DeMarcus Ware, ILB Willis, Packers CB Charles Woodson and Rogers, Seahawks safety Earl Thomas and Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson.

QB Tom Brady, Ravens RB Ray Rice and FB Vonta Leach, Gronkowski, Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey, Mankins and Waters at guard, Browns tackles Joe Thomas and Dolphins tackle Jake Long, Welker and Steelers WR Mike Wallace.
