Denver Broncos quarterback PEYTON MANNING, with 576,445 votes, leads all NFL players in balloting for the 2015 Pro Bowl, NFL.com announced today.

 

Fan voting for the 2015 Pro Bowl, presented by McDonald’s, will continue online and on web-enabled mobile phones by going tohttp://www.nfl.com/probowl/ballot until Monday, December 15.

 

Green Bay Packers quarterback AARON RODGERS (498,826 votes) ranks second overall, while Indianapolis Colts quarterback ANDREW LUCK (468,412 votes), New England Patriots quarterback TOM BRADY (461,043 votes), and Dallas Cowboys running back DE MARCO MURRAY (447,561 votes) round out the top five on NFL.com.

 

Balloting will conclude on Monday, December 15. The Pro Bowl players will be announced on Tuesday, December 23.

The Pro Bowl will be “unconferenced” for the second consecutive year.

 

Last season, the familiar AFC vs. NFC match-up that had existed since 1971 was eliminated. Instead, players are selected without regard to conference in voting by fans, coaches and players. For example, the top six quarterbacks following voting will earn distinction as All-Stars, regardless of how many are from AFC or NFC teams.

 

Then, the NFL’s All-Stars will be realigned through a fantasy football-style draft.

 

The Pro Bowl players are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 All-Star players who will be eligible for the Pro Bowl Draft.

 

NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on December 19. The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its all-star teams. It was the first professional sports league to offer online all-star voting in 1995.
