The NFL event that everyone loves to hate, the Pro Bowl, is upon us. The game will be taking place on Sunday night in Honolulu, Hawai'i, and is the penultimate contest of the 2015-16 NFL season. Yes, it doesn't count for anything, but it's still NFL football, and we're about to hit the long, dark tea time of the offseason, so at this point we can take what we can get.
If we want to, anyway.
After initially only getting one representative into this year's game, running back Adrian Peterson, the necessity for replacements has given the Minnesota Vikings five different players on this year's contest. The teams are "Team Rice" and "Team Irvin," as they were drafted by legendary NFL wide receivers Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin. The purple representation is equally divided. . .well, as equally divided as five people can be between two teams, I suppose. Defensive end Everson Griffen is on Team Rice with Peterson, while safety Harrison Smith, linebacker Anthony Barr, and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater are all members of Team Irvin.
This game will be broadcast on ESPN, and kickoff from Honolulu is scheduled for 6:00 PM Central time on Sunday afternoon. As far as online streaming is concerned, the game will be available through Watch ESPN, but you need some sort of login from your cable provider in order to go that route.
Will you be watching the Pro Bowl to see how the members of the Minnesota Vikings fare?
