The Pro Bowl is back! After last year’s cancellation due to COVID-19, the Pro Bowl makes its return this year and will take place on February 6th, 2022. Fans have had the chance to vote for their favorite players since the middle of November, and now that voting has come to an end it’s time to take a look at who made the Pro Bowl roster–and more importantly, who didn’t?

AFC Pro Bowl Snubs

WR Dionte Johnson, Steelers

Don't get me wrong, Keenan Allen is great--BUT, Dionte Johnson out-performs him in almost every statistic. Johnson has more touchdowns, more receiving yards, and only has 6 fewer receptions than Allen--but still failed to see the Pro Bowl Nod. 

FS Justin Simmons, Broncos

The Broncos are one of the six teams without a Pro Bowler, and Justin Simmons probably should have been the one to change that. Simmons made the Pro Bowl last year, and he is unquestionably having a better season this time around. He has a career-best five interceptions on the season, and has two sacks to add on top of that.

QB Josh Allen, Bills

While this is not a slight to the QBs selected, there is a strong case for Josh Allen to get the call over at least one of them, mainly Lamar Jackson. Allen's thrown over 30 touchdowns on the season with only 12 interceptions, and has thrown for over 1,000 more yards than Jackson has on the year. Sure you have to take into account the rising game as well, but Allen only has 200 fewer rushing yards than Jackson--and two MORE TD's than him.

NFC Pro Bowl Snubs

QB Matt Stafford, Rams

Again, picking QBs for the Pro Bowl is like finding the shiniest diamond in the...in the diamond pile (not my best analogy but you get it.) That being said, Matt Stafford is having a heck of a season, and could have very well got the nod over Kyler Murray. Stafford has the third-most passing yards in the league and the second-most passing touchdowns, yet it wasn't enough for him to get the votes. 

RB Cordarelle Patterson, Falcons

Cordarelle Patterson has been a swiss army knife for the Falcons and has effectively been their best running back while also being their best wide receiver. It would have been extremely easy to sneak Patterson on the team somewhere, and shown him some respect for what he's been able to do this year.
