Full of news, the Pro Bowl de 2023 will happen in this Thursday (2) and in the next domingo (5) in Las Vegas, at Allegiant Stadium, home of the Raiders. The event, known as the NFL’s All-Star Game, has undergone a major overhaul and will feature several skill challenges and a game of flag football, organized by brothers Peyton and Eli Manning. Find out what the Pro Bowl will be like!
The dispute between the teams of the American Conference (AFC) against the National Conference (NFC) did not change. This time, skill challenges will add up to points until flag football games take place. In each of the nine events, the winning conference receives three points. In the first two flag matches, whoever wins, accumulates six points – there will be 12 points up for grabs. From there, the AFC and NFC scores will be added together to be included in the scoreboard for the third flag game, which will define the Pro Bowl champion.
Burning, competition with balloons and buckets of water and golf swings are some of the skills tournaments scheduled for the Pro Bowl this Thursday (2) between the AFC against the NFC. Check out the events:
- Epic Pro Bowl Dodgeball: Four-team, five-player dodgeball competition from two conferences;
- Lightning Round: 16 players measure forces in an elimination contest composed of water balloons, water buckets and more;
- Longest Drive: Four players will be chosen in an attempt to make the longest golf putt;
- Precision Passing: Three players from each conference (two quarterbacks and one non-quarterback) will duke it out in a one-minute contest to hit targets with quick passes;
- Best Catch: Two players will compete to get the most impressive and creative catch.
On Sunday (5), four other skills disputes are confirmed:
- Best Catch (final): The most voted in the elimination phase advance to the last round;
- Gridiron Gauntlet: Race side by side through an obstacle course that will have walls, tables, walls, tires, etc;
