2018 Pro Bowl Open Thread

Hey, it’s football. Sort of.

NFL: Pro Bowl-NFC Practice Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It’s the second-to-last weekend of the 2017 NFL season, and the game that everyone makes fun of yet a bunch of people still apparently watch anyway is on the agenda for this afternoon.

The AFC/NFC Pro Bowl is set to kick off on both ABC and ESPN at 2:00 PM Central time.

There will be five members of the Minnesota Vikings on the field in this one:

  • Tight end Kyle Rudolph
  • Wide receiver Adam Thielen
  • Cornerback Xavier Rhodes
  • Safety Harrison Smith
  • Defensive tackle Linval Joseph

Defensive end Everson Griffen and linebacker Anthony Barr were also named to the NFC squad, but both have bowed out due to injury concerns.

Yes, I know, it’s football. It’s not necessarily good football, but after next weekend, there isn’t going to be any football.

If you’re going to be watching the game, feel free to hang out and talk about whatever with your fellow Vikings fans.
