The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles won’t have any players participating in the 2023 Pro Bowl Games as they prepare for Super Bowl LVII.
Still, this year’s Pro Bowl is intriguing. It has been reimagined, eliminating the traditional game between AFC and NFC players. Instead, it has been replaced with a number of different events with skills challenges and 7-on-7 flag football competitions as the focus.

Best Catch: The top vote getters of Thursday’s event from each conference will compete head-to-head, as they perform in front of panel of celebrity judges.
Gridiron Gauntlet: Six players from each conference will complete in a side-by-side, 40-yard relay race that includes a series of breakaway walls, a section of climbing over walls and under tables, a tire run and a blocking sled carrying a Legend coach across the finish line.
Move the Chains: Four teams (two teams from each conference) will compete side by side in a weighted wall pull that will showcase their strength, speed and ingenuity.
Kick Tac Toe: Each team’s kicker, punter and long snapper compete, with the first team to complete a connecting line of three squares or hit five squares total will be declared the winner.
Flag Football Scoring (via USA TODAY):
The winning conference of each skill challenge will earn three points toward an overall score, with 24 points available in the eight skills competitions. The winning conference from each of the first two flag football games on Sunday will earn six points with a total of 12 points available.
Finally, the points from the skills competitions and the first two flag football games will be tabulated and will be the score ahead of the third and final flag football game, which is worth another six points and could ultimately determine the winning conference for the Pro Bowl Games.
