HELP ME WITH RATINGS


For the past two years, there have been rumors about whether or not the Pro Bowl would continue, and if it would still be held in Hawaii.  From day one of practice, it was evident that the NFL All Stars came to play.  From quarterbacks to kickers, players worked on plays and drills and it all showed on game day.  While everyone agrees it was a much better game than last year, we’ll have to wait until April to learn of its fate.  In the meantime, here's some highlights of Pro Bowl Week 2013.
