Official NFL The Pro Bowl list was released Thursday nightOne of the biggest surprises is that the player with the most fan votes is eliminated.

That player is Tua Tagovailoa, and although he was the only player in the NFL to receive more than 300,000 Pro Bowl votes, he didn’t end up cracking the AFC’s list of quarterbacks, which includes Josh Allen, Joe Burrow, and Patrick. Mahomes. Fan voting only accounts for a third of the decision-making process, which means that since Tua didn’t make it, it was because the coaches and players didn’t vote for him.

The good news for Tua is that he’s the first alternative to the Pro Bowl, which means if Allen, Burrow, or Mahomes end up in the Super Bowl, Tua will get the first choice to replace them, so there’s a chance that he will. They end up in the Pro Bowl anyway. Also, since he’s trying to get his team to the Super Bowl, he probably couldn’t care less about the fact that he was snubbed.

There will be 88 Las Vegas players in this year’s Pro Bowl. The AFC and NFC rosters were decided with input from fans, players, and coaches, with each group accounting for a third in the vote.

Here are a few of the coins about this year’s Pro Bowl rosters:

  • Only two teams were eliminated. There have been 30 teams that have had at least one Pro Bowl player, which means that there have been two teams without any players: bear And the Jaguar. At the Chicago end, perhaps the most viable Pro Bowl option was Justin Fields, but he lost out to Kirk Cousins, Jalen Hurts, and Geno Smith, who made the list as the NFC’s three quarterbacks. As for Jacksonville, you likely made a case for Foyesade Oluokun, who currently leads the NFL in tackles with 156 in a season where no other player has yet 150.
  • the Eagles It has the most Pro Bowlers. In news that probably won’t surprise anyone, the team with the best record also has the most Pro Bowlers. The Eagles had eight players on the preliminary roster, a player ahead of Cowboys And the heads, and they both have seven players. Not to be outdone crows And the 49ers Both have had six Pro Bowl appearances.
  • seventh heaven. Although Tua did not enter, Tyreek Hill did, marking the seventh consecutive season that Hill has made the Pro Bowl. This makes Hill and AJ Green the only receivers in NFL history to start their careers with seven consecutive Pro Bowl nods. On the defensive side, Aaron Donald earned his ninth consecutive vote, the third-most all-time for a defensive lineman, behind only Reggie White (13) and Bruce Smith (11).
  • Brotherly love. Jason Kelce and Travis Kelce have both broken up the Pro Bowl roster, which means they have now combined for 14 career Pro Bowls. This is the third-most in NFL history for a pair of brothers, trailing only Mannings (Peyton and Eli) and Matthews (Bruce and Clay), who combined for 18 Pro Bowl nods.
  • A rare upward party. The AFC and NFC each have one rookie cornerback, marking only the second time in Pro Bowl history that two rookie cornerbacks have made the Pro Bowl in the same year. the PlanesTariq Woolen, “Sauce Gardner and the Seahawks,” will join Ronnie Lott (49) and Iverson Walls (Cowboys), who both played in the Pro Bowl after the 1981 season.
  • GNU waits a decade. the Seahawks The QB was named to the Pro Bowl this year, which means he had to wait until his 10th season to get his first Pro Bowl nod. Smith is the first QB since Rich Gannon in 1999 to earn his first Pro Bowl selection after spending at least 10 seasons in the NFL.
