Tickets Expensive as Pro Bowl Returns to Mainland

Airing tonight, January 26, at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN, and live-streaming to the ESPN website, ten players from the AFC will compete against the best of the NFC in a set of five different challenges, from dodgeball to the new wide receiver drone drop.

One of the fundamental differences between the Pro Bowl and the all-star games in baseball, basketball and hockey is that those other sports' all-star games really do have all the stars.

It has always been established that the NFL Pro Bowl is as close to unwatchable as possible.

During the test, Hopkins and Ferguson got into a mockup version of the Starliner spacecraft to test the suit's mobility. The gas intact and output valves are located on the abdomen of the suit for easy access where they are needed the most.

The teams are lead by Pro Bowl legends with Jerome Bettis and Ray Lewis leading the AFC and Tony Gonzalez and Charles Woodson leading the NFC. In the "Hands Competition", wide receivers had to catch several passes, including one-handed and over-the-shoulder. The NFC's team of Thomas Davis, Gerald McCoy, Jason Kelce and Ezekiel Elliott then stepped in and beat them with 28.7 seconds.

The fourth event was the Precision Passing competition, which required quarterbacks to hit multiple moving targets.

Third was the drone drop with players fielding a football dropped from varying heights from a drone. Odell Beckham Jr. won the contest.

Italy avalanche: Ten survivors found buried in hotel
One boy who identified himself as Edoardo said he had been one of three children trapped, along with one woman, in the same room. The force of the snow reduced much of it to rubble and spread debris across the valley floor.

In the final activity, the two conferences did battle on the dodgeball field.

The Vikings likely won't have any representatives in the precision passing drill, which is a shame since Sam Bradford broke an National Football League record for accuracy during the 2016 season, but there should still be a lot of fun when it comes to the relay and dodgeball competitions.

Browns offensive lineman Joe Thomas touted himself as something as a dodgeball connoisseur earlier this season. This gave the AFC 1 point. Drew Brees and Andy Dalton tied at 16, followed by Dak Prescott (11). His quarterback would be Alex Smith.
