Several Falcons named Pro Bowl alternates

Several Falcons named Pro Bowl alternates

"I'm very excited, very proud, but we have a lot of work to do".

Even with two games remaining, this season has already been one to remember for the Minnesota Vikings.

Adams was named a third alternate at safety, so there's actually a decent chance he could play in the Pro Bowl, Jan. 28 in Orlando on ESPN.

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost a showdown to the New England Patriots for AFC supremacy on Sunday night, but they were atop the pack when it came to filling out the Pro Bowl roster.

When the 2018 Pro Bowl rosters were announced, my first reaction was "where the heck is Alex Smith?"

Four rookies were chosen in voting by National Football League players, coaches and fans: running backs Alvin Kamara of the Saints and Kareem Hunt of the Chiefs, cornerback Marshon Lattimore of the Saints, and safety Budda Baker of the Cardinals as a special teamer.

"Back to back to back!" Griffen is one of the league's fourth leading sacker with 13.0 on the season. Rhodes has matched up with - and shut down - the likes of Antonio Brown, Julio Jones and AJ Green this year. Making the Pro Bowl as a quarterback is extremely hard, given the talent across the league, particularly in the NFC.

Nokia 4G feature phone to launch soon
This clearly hints that the Nokia 9 could feature a telephoto lens for DSLR-like bokeh effects and lossless zoom. To keep things ticking, the Nokia 9 could be armed with a 3,250mAh battery with support for fast charging.

Barr made the Pro Bowl as an alternate last season even though he admitted he played below expectations.

Hayward has 11 interceptions and 40 passes defended over the last two seasons.

Thielen broke loose previous year with 69 catches for 967 yards and this season has been even better. The NFL's leading receiver has 101 catches for 1,533 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Vikings' 2012 first-round pick did appear in the Pro Bowl in both 2015 and 2016.

Butker was selected as an alternate and honestly I don't think he was necessarily snubbed.

Nose tackle Linval Joseph was also left off the list.

"I'm hoping that none of our Pro Bowlers are playing in the Pro Bowl, " Vikings defensive end Brian Robison said Monday.
